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.

Burj Khalifa can be seen virtually from any place in Dubai. Without a GPS in the car it was the only thing that kept our sense of direction. Getting to the Burj was easy since it has its own access ramp. there are several parking spots which got us confused at first that we ended up going in only to... More

Despite my longstanding fear of heights I was persuaded by my family to take a trip one evening in a very fast lift to the 148th floor observation deck. Wow, what a view! The whole of Dubai laid out in lights in front of me! And a view from above of the amazing dancing fountain display. Only slightly uncomfortable, as... More

Went up here earlier this week, and was rather disappointed. Didn't have to wait long to collect tickets and queue wasn't too bad to get to lift. The lift was cramped and not much to entertain on the way up (unlike world trade centre). On arriving at the top you are greeted by a load of people waiting to get... More

Since we pre-bought the tickets for an assigned time it was very easy. The extra money we spent on going early evening was a waste. The sunset did not happen as there was a huge bank of clouds or fog . The 124th and the walk up to the 125th floors was very nice viewing the city at night. We... More

Only if you have time and money to waste. Even with the compulsory booking the place is crowded and expect to queue for everything. Also don't go at night, you can't see anything.

The ambience is probably similar to that of you we're going to space... music, waiting, screens everywhere. But in the end for all that money you get what you get for free in other cities around the world: a view from the top. A lot of the waiting I'd for having your picture taken, another way of getting to your... More

All occupants of the Burj Khalifa have passes. Her car is patked 3 storeys under the Burj Khalifa, which wad the only place... More

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.
