Sunrise At The Top … Burj Khalifa At Ridiculous O’Clock …

So back to the beginning of last week … one evening after work I rang my Cousin in Iran to get all the details about her trip to Dubai with her Daughter Ghazaleh …flight details etc … while speaking to them I also asked Ghazaleh if there was anything in particular she had wanted to do while she was here … and well one of them was to go up the Burj Khalifa …

I went online to book the tickets but as it was quite short notice and the weekends are generally booked out for the good hours (anytime around Sunset) weeks in advance the only slots available were first thing in the morning from about 4am – 10am and in the late evening after 10pm …

In the end we decided to go up in time for the sunrise … and we booked tickets for 5.30am after I double and triple checked that getting up that early wouldn’t be a problem for her … Sunrise was due at 6.21am and so we figured getting up there almost an hour before hand would give us a chance to see the views both in the night as well as in daylight … and obviously during sunrise …

Anyway I’m going to stop with the words now and let the pictures do the talking … hope you enjoy …

Till next time …
