The Burj Khalifa is a record breaking 160 stories high and is the iconic skyscraper that takes centre stage on the Dubai skyline. Towering over Dubai Mall, the Burj Khalifa stands tall at an impressive 2716.5 feet high, and is by far the world’s tallest building. The dancing musical fountains at the base of the Burj Khalifa are magical and leave us reminiscing of Las Vegas’s Bellagio fountain.
The Burj Khalifa is one of the top attractions to visit in Dubai, and crowds flock to see it and the views from the top. It can get very busy, especially at sunset, and tickets often sell out. It’s a good idea to book tickets in advance with AttractionTix to guarantee a seamless visit.
Along the way up, there are opportunities to marvel over the construction of the Burj Khalifa, that took over six years in the making, before it opened in 2010.
Getting up to the top of the Burj Khalifa merely takes a a minute. The elevator ride up is swift and smooth, and it’s only the popping of the ears that give away that you have arrived at dizzying heights. With unprecedented views over Dubai, and the Gulf, it really is awe inspiring. You really do feel like you are at the top of the world. “At the Top” the observation decks are split over two floors and it’s floor 124 that allows you to take the best pictures with unobstructed open views. You can watch the graceful fountains flow from above and only wonder how the Mission Impossible movie was filmed.
Up on floor 125 are swings to sit back and watch the world go by. It’s also now possible to get to 555 metres high, up on floor 148.
There’s also a lovely gift shop, to get a memento of the visit to the Burj Khalifa.
The Burj Khalifa is impressive and a must visit whilst in Dubai. Whether you are on a stopover, or a honeymoon it’s a memorable day out.
