Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world located in modern Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Its construction began in 2004 and was completed in 2010.

Burj Khalifa was designed to be the centerpiece of large-scale, mixed-use development and it is meant to represent oil-based economy of the city which very quickly gained international recognition as one of the richest and most developed places in the world.

The building was named in honor of the ruler of the city and president of the United Arab Emirates – Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Abu Dhabi.

Its impressive height of 555 meters makes it the most iconic sightseeing on this planet.

How far can tourists get? You can get to levels 148 and 125 of Burj Khalifa and admire breath-taking scenery of the city.

Burj Khalifa required a combination of visionary ideas and solid science and it:

  • is the tallest building in the world
  • has the highest occupied floor in the world
  • has the highest outdoor observation deck in the world
  • has an elevator with the longest travel distance in the world
  • has the tallest service elevator in the world.

The stunning architecture of Burj Khalife features a triple-lobed footprint, an abstraction of the Hymenocallis flower. The tower is composed of three elements arranged around a central core.

  1. Whoa, that’s a pricey view (did the conversion rates to US Dollars). It looks like it might be totally worth it though! It reminds me of the views you get when you’re taking off the ground in an airplane. :)

      Yes, it’s one of the most expensice spots I’ve ever been to, but it’s really worth it so I highly recommend it!

    I loved standing “At the Top” of the Burj Khalifa! I have been at the observation desk twice, once in October 2012 in the late morning/early midday and a second time in April 2013 in the late afternoon/early evening, so that I could watch the sunset and how the city started to enlighten. Despite the high prices I think it is so much worth a visit because the views are absolutely stunning from up there!

  3. Yep – totally worth it!! It might be a bit pricey… but look at it!! Amazing!!

    And look at you guys posing at the top there – so something I would do while travelling!! :p

    I went up to the 125th floor and the view was fabulous. Definitely worth it. We were lucky it was a lovely day and got some cracking photos. The speed the lift ascended was pretty impresive too.

  5. We’ve seen the burj khalifa twice but have never gone up it. I think I may pass if I am in Dubai again (I’ll live vicariously through your photos!).

  6. I’m planning a trip to Dubai soon!! Can’t wait! Love your pics! The view looks amazing! And that last pic of you looks so artistic! :)
