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.

We booked weeks ahead and queued for an hour at least to reach the top. 10 mins later we were lining up to leave already. Such a pity they couldn't be bothered to put some effort into observation deck other than low class souvenir shops. My suggestion: reserve your table at the restaurant 2 stories below and enjoy a glass of champagne. . At least u get to sit down somewhere nice n treated properly. Tickets vs Bubbles, u know what u want!

Quite a spectacular project and very well organised. The speed of the elevator is quite impressive but you hardly feel it at all. A great view over Dubai if it's not too hazy. If you are afraid of heights it is not the place for you!

best to prebook this as its cheaper and you have a time slot. An amazing feat of engineering and the views from the observatory are great

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.
