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.

Good for building lovers

The best way to get there is by taking the metro. As you get closer you can see the impressive building. You can go to Dubai Mall afterwards too.

We went at 7pm and it took us until gone 8 to actually get up to the 125th floor which with a 5yo was a long time. Lift was great, view was great once you were up there although I do wonder if it would be better to go up another building so you can see the building itself in... More

To be seen ! At 124st floor you can enjoy a smashing view on the city, sea and desert. We went at the top for the sunrise at 5.30am. Very few people with us, the sunrise only for us. Breakfast was offered in the entrance fee. What an unforgettable moment with our teenagers!

The visit to The Top Burj Khalifa was an awesome experience. Going up 125 floors in One Minute. The view from the 125th floor was just amazing. Worth the money spent.

Of course you have to visit, but it is expensive. The views are best at sunset so make sure you book a 6 o'clock slot. A little unsettling that some parts were stuck together with duct tape 125 floors up. See photo. Makes you wonder what else they've bodged.

For myself I've gone up inside the Burj Khalifa numerous times in the past, however travelling with my friend & being his first time to Dubai I had pre-booked going up to Level 148 on Monday 10/04/17 for 10am. The views are fantastic from either level you choose [148 Level much more expensive than Level 124]. When entering At The... More

Awesome experience being on top at 125F! Seeing the amazing Dubai from up above! The Dubai Mall connected is also great but very tiring!

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.
