      Tickets to observation Burj Kalifa?

      Dubai Oct 19, 2016 at 1:34 PM

      When I try to book at the official site, it only allows for one month ahead. Since we will be leaving on a cruise, and I assume it is cheaper to buy online, are other sites such as '' reliable? anyone had experience? Viator charges $$ more for the same ticket, so not using them.
      Thanks for input.

    • Purchase of NOL Silver Card with 7 day pass

      Dubai Sep 29, 2016 at 12:34 AM

      All information of the Nol Card states that the Silver Card costs AED 25 which includes an initial e-purse value of AED 19. One 7 days pass for all zones costs AED 110. How does this work? Lets say you have purchased a Silver Card by paying AED 25, you now have a balance of AED 19 loaded on to it. Do you now pay AED 110 - AED 19 (AED 91) additional to get the 7 days pass? Or is there a direct purchase of both the Silver Card and the 7 days pass? Be grateful if someone can clarify. Thanks in Advance.
