Marvel at Burj Khalifa, the 829.8 m (2,722 ft) high futuristic centerpiece of the modern downtown area. Upon construction in 2010, the mega skyscraper ranked as the world's tallest manmade structure. Designed by architect Adrian Smith, it incorporates patterns from Islamic art and architecture, with its tapering tiers reminiscent of traditional spiral minarets. Enjoy the view from the outdoor observation deck on the 124th floor: at 452 m (1,483 ft) above the city, you'll gain a true bird's-eye perspective on the developing metropolis below. Afterwards, stroll around the palm-lined pathways of the 11 hectare (27 acre) landscaped park, featuring flowering trees, gardens, benches, and water features. Don't miss the massive fountains at entrance to the building.

  • I am always fascinated by this building, not just high but especially nice!! Eye to the offices that sell tickets in the mall: do not pose the "classical" visit to 129 floor (which absolutely deserves!) but only that the Summit, which costs almost three times more!

  • It is the world's highest Bill brugesharifa 122-floor restaurant. Was able to book a window seat good luck and to eat while watching the scenery on the outside. Diorama buildings under the Burj Khalifa is too high to look much smaller. You can see from the top is the Dubai fountain located in Dubai by the times show.

  • When you visit Dubai, it is a unique experience to gaze the city from the top of the tallest building in the whole wide world. Burj Khalifa will steal your heart, not only with its unsurpassed luxury, but also with its imposing and awe inspiring nature. It boasts over 828 metres high (almost 830 metres till its tip) and it stands tall among all the other fancy buildings of Dubai. From the observation deck, you can see miles away and you can admire the cosmopolitan city of Dubai to its magnitude. Schedule a visit at Burj Khalifa and shape memories that will last for a lifetime. With more than 160 storeys, Burj Khalifa will impress every single guest. Its cutting edge design reflects its uniqueness in the most eloquent manner, with breathtaking details and stylish touches that add to its overall elegance. Climb up the observation deck and have a drink at the world's highest terrace outdoors, relishing the view with every single sip. Watch the horizon and the chromatic mixture gently painting the sky from dawn till sunset. On the ground, you will get the chance to entertain yourself at the picturesque Park with the abundant greenery and the water highlights. The Dubai Fountain is a sight for sore eyes, with its special choreography and its wonderful effects fascinating everyone around. As you stroll up and down the promenade to Dubai's most iconic attraction, you will feel enchanted by the urban inspiration of the whole structure and the mastery of the design. This is the heart of Dubai and the most striking proof of a new, modern and luxurious era for the Middle East. Amidst modern wonders of architecture and within the centre of an international hub for business, Burj Khalifa represents wonderfully the identity of Dubai
  • It is as good as the eighth wonder of the world. Your trip to Dubai is incomplete without a visit to Burj Khalifa. My salute to the Prince. He is a blessing to mankind. He has created hundred thousands of job opportunities employing staffs from around the globe to manage his tallest tower in the world and its surrounding parks and the Dubai Mall. Amazing structure. A piece of priceless Art. The washrooms are clean neat and well maintained at all times. The underwater zoo in the Dubai Mall is fantastic. The musical fountain, ooh it's so wonderful.

  • WOW! What an amazing building! We have gone up as high as we could ( floor 148) . It is worth paying the extra for the higher level as you get a VIP treatment. No long queues, a refreshing drink at the top. Tour guide. The view is just breath taking. When we were visiting it was a fairly windy day so there was lots of desert sand in the air, so we could not see the sunset. But being at the top of the world is a life time experience. The view of the city at night was beautiful.
  • The view from the top of Burj Khalifa is magical! It has got one of the fastest moving elevators in the world! Beauty of musical fountain and underwater world are just wow!! You don’t feel like leaving & returning from there! Marvelous, fabulous aren’t the words.. it’s beyond to say 😍
