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.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

If you go to Dubai this is a must do. Very impressive, but not much to see when you get to the top. The aim was to be bigger and better and this was achieved.

“A must see in Dubai”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

It is worth going up to the top. the views are breathtaking and you can even go on an outside veranda and see the city. It is a good idea to reserve your entrance tickets online as they are sold in time slots and they sell out quickly.

“Just a high building”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

It is just an high building.
Better to see from outside.
The Abu Dabi cheikh has his name on it because he helped Dubai emirates from bankrupcy and give 90,000,000,000$...
Nice to see but not worthy to climb 425 meters.
