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.

On a recent visit to Dubai we took a trip to the 123rd and 124th floors of the Burj Khalifa - the tallest building in the world. I had pre-booked the tickets on their website before traveling and had bought them at a much better price than they were available at on the day. We were booked in for 11am,... More

I had the level 148 tour which you have to book in advance this is a must unless you want to wait in line for an extra 2 hours. I would also recommend going in the evening or later in the night for the best views of the city.

We paid £125 each for a trip to the 148 floor, prior to departure we were gathered in a lounge, given coffee and dates, then escorted to the lifts to take us up, when the lift doors opened on the 148 floor to another lounge where there was leather sofas, seats against the floor to ceiling glass, staff served us...

I waited for a good 4 hours which I found rather ridiculous. OH WELL NEVER MIND! nevertheless, I got in with my co worker and went to the top to experience THAT view. However, I underestimated the pure height of this building and almost passed out looking over the edge. My co worker however was on hand to help me... More

The tower is really huge and tall. You can see it from every corner of the Dubai. I can recommend the special ticket for the top (148th floor) with the sunset view. Even it is bloody expensive compare to the cheaper one, it is worthy. We've been in both - 124/125th floor is as well nice but full of people.... More

We were in Dubai for my 40th birthday and had to visit the Burj. We did the 'At The Top' trip where we had pre booked tickets before leaving home. An amazing experience and must do, although ours was and 8.30am ticket and the fog did obscure the view somewhat a later ticket would, in hindsight, have been better. As... More

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.
