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.

Part of the Dubai mall this area is outstanding and is huge the main attraction is of course the tower which has to be booked in advance otherwise you have a long wait until a space becomes available.

The Groupon we purchased included the following: Fast pass 007 Bond traveling exhibition (ending in April) Access to 125th floor Pros: It is worthwhile visiting Burj Khalifa at night vs. during the day. Spectacular evening view of downtown Dubai along with the Dubai fountain performance every 30 minutes. The Groupon voucher we purchased included fast passes. What a relief! No... More

It's definitely worth going to see the Burj, but if going up I'd suggest getting tickets in advance as they are a lot more expensive on the door (when we enquired was 600 dirhams so about £130 for the 2 of us with a good exchange rate - but same tickets can be bought in advance for £30 each). Looks... More

Why is it a must when in Dubai? Because it's the tallest building in the world. Buy your ticket early. Don't buy at the counter because there are many peope queing up to buy the ticket as well. Come exactly at least 30 minutes early. The queu is very long. once you reach at the top, the view is stunning.

Visited the Burj Khalifa on clear day , all the way to 148 th floor, at prime time (pricey but worth it!!!), bought skip the line ticket thru getyourguide.com, and that was worth getting , since the regular lines were quite long. Watch the fountains from up above , beautiful. The view from all around are amazing.

The tallest building in the world very expensive at €100.00 pp to go to The Top 148 floor observation deck, but you have seen nothing like it anywhere in the world before, Just do it you won't regret it, highly recommend.

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.
