Overview

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.

I loved the experience of going up the But I Khalifa. I would recommend going up just before sunset. I got a lot of lovely photographs of before during and after the sunset. Definitely a must visit place to go in Dubai.

Such a stunning piece of architecture. Love the area where the Burj is. The fountains are best admired at dark so you can fully appreciate them with accompanying music. Very theatrical and breathtaking..

When in Dubai, you must "do the Burj"! You can't get to the top but 124 floors or so is plenty to get a view for miles around. The lift whizzes you up in a few seconds then you spend time sightseeing from just below...More

The fountain shows run at every 30 minutes (18.30, 19.00, 19.30 etc.) and the light shows on Burj Khalifa every 30 minutes as well, between the fountain shows (18.45, 19.15, 19.45 etc.).
