Owner description: 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.

Very dissapointing. The viewing level is not near the top of the building. The smog in Dubai is so bad you can hardly see anything. We went for the sunset time, and saw the sun set into the smog, rather than the horizon. Not worth the AUD$30.

A good hour trip. Ticket cost on the day is £66:00 each which is not worth it al all so book on line and get your ticket for £16:00. They call it the trip to the top but don't be fooled you only go to the 124 th floor, there are over 200 floors but the view is unique and for £16 a good trip.

A must see for everyone who visits Dubai...this one is the tallest in the world and the observation deck which is open air, on the 124th floor is just amazingggggg! A tip- tickets are difficult to get, specially on weekends, so it is advisable to book online in advance

We were lucky - we could see a fair distance, but I reckon that's becasue we were there at 10am. We bought our tickets in advance which meant that we didn't really need to queue at all which was great. The views are stunning - though I would have loved it if we could have seen Atlantics / Palm etc better. Granted noth my husband and I have a "thing" about architecture and tall buildings, but I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this experience. The shop in the mall once you "get back to earth" is good, and the information on display throughout is very, very good.
All in all - can't believe this is our 3rd time in Dubai and we didn't think to go before - thoroughly recommend it.
A little bit of advice, return at night time to see the fountains!!
