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.

“Amazing”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

This tower is beautiful, and immense, took the tour to the top, from where you can see the all city, but because of the weather could not see the beach. Great place to shop and eat

“Need a head for heights”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

This place is a must see when your visiting Dubai, the 360 degree views are amazing, you can see all of Dubai, couldn't believe how high up you are, it's so high your ears pop twice in the lift going up, which gets you to the top in 60 seconds flat.
Not badly priced either .

“Great views”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

We reserved with time and went at 7:00, it was a bit of a wait before going in but there's a lot of facts to keep you entertain while you wait. The elevators are fast but you don't even feel it moving. The space at the top isn't very big for the amount of people that they let in at a time, and the wait to go down was looong! the views are great and we got to see part of the fountains show, it looked nice from the top with all the lights. If the air isn't clean enough to see far away but they have those telescopes to view the city with screens that you can choose live view, night view, and a clear day view.
