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.

Worth the price of the ticket as so much to see - breathtaking! Lots to see and read, particularly the credits to every body involved in this huge construction, including those who are usually forgotten. Fantastic!

A must see! Express lift to observation floor and the views were so impressive. Great history lesson too!

Definitely worth going up the tower. Not many queues either. Suggest booking in advance. Entrance was quite hard to find in the mall so leave enough time to get there.
Fantastic photo opportunity although it was a little hazy. I had hoped to see the Palm but unfortunately not.

What an awesome building, dripping in opulence. Take a walk around all the small boutiques and drool at their products. An amazing experience at every turn. A must see for any trip to Dubai
