United Arab Emirates The Best View of Dubai, Burj Khalifa view from Shangri-La

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
This is the best view of Dubai Skyscrapers! You can see the entire Dubai skyline from this point. The view is from level 42 at the Shangri-La Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road.

Photography Tips

The best time to come to this spot is at sunset, just use some apps that let you know the exact sunset time and come 30 minutes before that. As it's getting darker you can start using long exposures, as in this photo of mine - the shutter speed is 6 sec.

Have a good wide-angle lens with you, the one that I used is the Sony 16-35mm f/4.

Travel Information

This is the view from an observation deck at the Shangri-La Hotel of Dubai, access to the rooftop is around $50 but if you have a good Instagram account they can let you visit the rooftop for free. Just write an email to the managers of the hotel. Happy shooting!

However, it appears to be so absurd that the sky is devoid of any object, with the exception of the Burj Khalifa, which towers above all else, providing this perspective with a completely distinct dimension. Dear Mathew, I appreciate your willingness to share your perspective. I am eager to visit Dubai independently at a latersnow rider date.

Meanwhile they charge you EUR 60 to get up and you have to contact them in advance. The amount includes up to two people for one hour and a voucher for a coffee or tea in their lounge - but it's worth the view!

I'm staying here soon so will report back on this spot. However, I'm told they've really tightened up on access. Hotel guests only but you can apply for a permit.
