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.

I visited Dubai on a cruise and one of the excursions was a trip up the burj khalifa. It took about 20 minutes to queue before getting into a lift which took 70 seconds to get to floor 124! The views are amazing, simply stunning. There was no time limit, so we could just take our time taking in the... More

The fastest lift ever and as we stopped it seemed we had never left the ground! Awesome views but make sure you chose a clear and fog free evening! The top is open and the best overview of the city! Some great souvenirs and photos so a must do at least once.

One of the MOST TERRIBLE EXPERIENCES EVER For an international tourist spot, and the international rates to go on top, this is a nightmare. Firstly, there is no concept of Queue, there is noone to guide as to which out of 4 queues that one needs to stand and finally, their staff have the audacity to threaten you with security... More

Awesome view, great food but poor service! They were understaffed during lunchtime. We sat next to the windows which was the best view and we paid more. But once more people came that were away from the window the service became slow and we were totally forgotten. The managers were good but the waiter was not attentive.

We went to floor 124 and not to the top as it was so expensive. The view was really nice and a great place to take pictures. It's a beautiful building on the outside, especially at nights, the building colours change and sparkles. The Dubai Mall dining area on the ground floor with outdoor restaurants is a Great place to... More

The show itself was only 8 minutes long featuring Michael Jackson's Thriller. Be sure to get a good place to view the show. We arrived only minutes before the show and didn't see that well. If you have time you can stay a bit longer and find a good spot to watch it a second time, since the show starts... 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.
