Description:

Described as both a ‘Vertical City’ and ‘A Living Wonder,’ Burj Khalifa,...

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.

If you nothing else when in Dubai you must go here. Go for the sunset. The views are awesome. You need (should) book in advance to beat the queues.

The line to get into the building was extremely long and took longer than usual to get up to the 125th floor. You could pay for a VIP pass and walk up with no issues, I am assuming. Maybe it was longer than usual due to the time of year and our showing was for 9:30pm. Other than the line... More

A must see as this gleaming icon lures you in to its heady heights. We upgraded our prebooked tickets to a VIP experience with a small group and delicious canapés when we reached the top viewing floor. Interesting info guide and views of Dubai. Back on the ground we enjoyed seeing this beautiful feat of construction engineering up close from... More

Could not take my eyes of the building from the outside and couldn't stop looking down from the observation deck. Do not miss when in Dubai.

You will love the view, the buildings, all Dubai and of course the great pics. Well organized, you have to make your reservation before you go but it is worth it.

Fantastic views and as it's the worlds tallest, you just have to go! There's plenty of room and not too open for those wary of heights.

The wife and I had a lovely afternoon with lunch at Emirates Golf Club followed by a trip to the Dubai Mall. It was all rounded off with the fantastic 'at the top' experience. Well organised and highly recommended if you don't suffer from vertigo!

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
