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.

Elevator ride up. Elevator ride down. Elevator moves too!!! Nice view, but truthfully not worth the price.

The view was amazing but nothing to do once you have seen the view. I felt that they could have had more displays about the area and the building of the tower. Great idea to pre buy tickets on Internet as it is much cheaper. A view I wouldn't have missed but felt it could offer so much more. We didn't eat there and I think perhaps the trick.

Book in advance so you don't need to pay extra on the day, we booked he night before and got a space no bother. We went up at 3pm, there was no queue and the 'top' wasn't too busy.

You aren't actually at the top so it's a bit of false advertising bt great view all the same.

Visibility was ok for us and the telescopes with information about different areas and buildings that you an see made our trip more interesting. We spent about 30 minutes 'at the top'

I must say that it was quiet confusing actually GETTING to the At.Mosphere for the high tea. However, once we got there it was exceptional. The food was great and the service really good.
