Dubai: The observation deck at the Burj Khalifa, At the Top, has been reopened after nearly two months of closure due to "maintenance".

A spokesperson for Emaar confirmed the attraction was open for business and new bookings.

Tickets for the observation deck are priced Dh100 for advance tickets and Dh400 for immediate entry.

At the Top is located on the 124th floor of the world’s tallest building.

Number 10 of the new disclaimer list: in few words photos are not allowed there?

You can both take photos and videos, except if during your visit they announce it that at that time you aren't allowed. The photos and videos taken at the top can not be commercially used - which is a load of BS, as 234sale said, it is absolutely impossible to check the use of the photos taken in Burj. I mean hello..

Geralds found a great location for a new pano, but he is not allowed to take pictures of the outside of the building he is taking the pictures from.. go figure...

I have a funny video of us being harrased by Emaar security of taking photos of the burj from inside of the Emaar district. Thing is I live their so what I'm not allowed to take pictures of the burj,, show we stop every tourist and take their cameras away because they are to professional..

Anyway that mist from this morning as a video..

I want to see that video of you

BTW, I was also told not to take pictures at the R/A on the entrance of the gate leading to The Palace Hotel. I said Ok, emtered the gate to the pool with the palms and went on with my business.
