Burj Khalifa, Dubai

Must see · Observation Deck · Architectural Building
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.

  • Great structure. Tallest building and amazing view. Aside from that you will have the chance to see the dancing fountain and grab a food inside the mall's food court. Everything in Dubai seems world....  more »
  • The magnificent, tallest structure and building in the world. Truly a beast. Had an amazing time at the Burj Khalifa. Aura was beautiful and lively at the fountain, right in front of the building. Once we reached the top, all the time in queue was worth the wait. Amazing views of Dubai from the top. It’s amazing how the lift takes you to the top in quick seconds. Like they’ve quoted literally “from the earth to the sky”. Burj Khalifa is a truly a shining symbol of what Dubai strives for and what they can accomplish.
  • The Burj Khalifa looks awesome especially at night. It was just unfortunate that it was not lit up as colorful as I had expected. But still, it looks majestic. I also saw the floating fountain /dancing fountain at the area. I met some friendly tourist there and I had a wonderful time here. There are many cafes and restaurants at all the surrounding area and was just full of people.
  • Great building. Awesome. Nice to see it from the Dubai Mall. I went twice to Dubai. The first time I didn’t go to the top. The second time I decided to purchase the ticket to go up to the floor 148 and I was highly disappointed. It’s too crowded even at non-peak times. At least 30 minutes to go up and another 30 minutes to go down. Total 1 hour wasted in a queue. They do not allow to go up of you have a laptop with you so you must take the risk to left it down at a concierge or at your hotel. If you’re in Dubai because of business and have very very important and sensitive information in your laptop, they don’t care. It is also very expensive compared with other important towers and buildings around the globe. I cannot recommend you to go up. Enjoy the views from the bottom.
  • Is there anything new to say about the world's tallest and largest construction? Here's a fact - it took them only 3 years to lay the foundation and complete the construction. The structure is 168 floors tall, wherein the viewer's gallery is on floors 124, 125 and 154 (sky lounge). The ideal time to visit is at the time of both sunrise and sunset. However, the night view is also one of a kind! An ultimate treat to see the entire city way above your imagination..
  • One of the world famous buildings and a must see place if you are visiting Dubai. The engineering skills that have been used to blow the mind and the way up the details are on how it was built, the stages and the current state of the building with the world. Also the technology used inside the building was amazing, including the lift that carries you to the 124th floor with just 60 seconds. where the viewing dock is. You can travel up to only certain floors and you wonder how the lift functions with so many people and such height. From the top the sight is Breath taking. It has a restaurant and night club as well but they are very upmarket.
