Description:

Described as both a ‘Vertical City’ and ‘A Living Wonder,’ Burj Khalifa,...

Described as both a ‘Vertical City’ and ‘A Living Wonder,’ Burj Khalifa, developed by Dubai-based Emaar Properties PJSC, is the world’s tallest building.

Rising gracefully from the desert, Burj Khalifa honours the city with its extraordinary union of art, engineering and meticulous craftsmanship.

At 828 metres (2,716.5 ft), the 200 plus storey Burj Khalifa has 160 habitable levels, the most of any building in the world. The tower was inaugurated on January 4, 2010, and is responsible for a number of world-firsts. The tower became the world’s tallest man-made structure just 1,325 days after excavation work started in January 2004.

Burj Khalifa utilised a record-breaking 330,000 cubic metres of concrete; 39,000 tonnes of steel reinforcement; 103,000 square metres of glass; and 15,500 square metres of embossed stainless steel. The tower took 22 million man hours to build.

Splendid view at the top!

We tried to catch the sunset, and started queuing at 5pm, it was a good 45mins to get to the 124th floor with a huge tourist crowd. A must-go regardless!!

This is an amazing feet of architecture - and a must see. Both from the bottom (currently lots of construction nearby for the expansion of the Mall) and from the viewing deck - but book a day or three ahead it is ALWAYS extremely busy.

This is a MUST!! - book the "Top of" (148 floors) tour and you get very well looked after. Nice ante room with Arabic coffee, treats all free. Very professional tour guide all the way. Once at the top, they do not rush you, plenty of time - the views are amazing., you can even walk outside in a balcony!... More

If you are planning for Dubai Mall, then you can plan this also. They don't let you go beyond level 125. It will be good, if you book your slot during day time, coz during night time, you won't be able to see much and just the lights.... Waiting times can go upto 30-45 mins, so plan accordingly.

Must go. It's amazing view from the top. Best time to visit is sunrise or sunset. In one minute you reach 124th floor that is amazing.

As many things in Dubai, Burj Khalifa does not dissapoint. It's an architecture masterpiece. We visited it. The reason why I rated it with 4 points and not 5 is the fact that there is not sitting area At the top where you can rest for a bit (after waiting around 30-45 minutes to get to the top).

Go for the 148 floor option, queues are too big for just the 125 floor. Arrive 5 mins before and go straight towards the front of the queue.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
