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.

This is a must see when in Dubai. I'd suggest people purchase tickets online prior to the tour as its a sell out. Also, tickets are cheaper online. The sight from the top is stunning and truly breathtaking. The queuing system is well managed, which is a bonus considering its a popular attraction.

“OMG!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

If you have a neck problem don't dare to look up and try to see the top of the structure! Beautifully illuminated at night and a glimmering beauty by day. However, couldn't take a ride to the 125th floor (which is as high as they allow visitors) since tickets are to be booked well in advance and we needed to be more organised to do that!!

“Amazing view”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The view was great and there was heaps to see. They have these great machines (like the binoculars that others have, but these ones allow you to go back in history and see it as it was 20 years ago, see it at night, see it on a clear day (very helpful as mostly it isn't clear). Also take the time to see the fountain show from above.

“Must do attraction”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

we visited At.Mosphere restaurant at the top of the tower. The welcome was too brusque, but after that the serving staff were very attentive and smiley. The food was good but not the best to be found in Dubai. However, the location and views are unforgettable.

“View from the top”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

I know people call it an expensive affair, a not-so-big-deal and not so many great reviews. I feel differently. I think it is a wonderful experience to visit At The Top, Burj Khalifa. Firstly, you get a first hand experience of how this mammoth structure was built. Secondly, the view is beautiful. They also give a Day, Night, Historic and Live view from the telescopes there of the street down below. The souvenir shop is good and offers interesting merchandise. The entire tour from the start at the lower basement floor of the Dubai Mall till the exit takes about 1 hour. There is usually a lot of rush but not unbearable. It is a place to click pictures – if you are not fond of that activity – you might not like it. Prices could have been lesser – well book in advance on their website. And secondly, brand value makes you pay higher. Enjoy the experience and see what it feels to be right at the top.
