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.

Go all the way to the top! Observation decks on floors 124, 125, and 148 allow for an amazing 360° view of the city. The locations is very busy, but well worth the wait.

The Burj Khalifa is the tallest structure in the world, so it is a tourist attraction. Just behind it, however, is a remarkable fountain display that is worth a visit, especially when illuminated at night.

What can I say about the tallest building in the world! It is beautiful and a defining piece of the Dubai skyline. The view of the city from the upper floors is spectacular!

As we were likely to do this only once we paid extra for the At the Top Experience which gives VIP access to the 148th floor in addition to the 124/125th floors. The difference in cost (it's something like £45 standard and £120 for the VIP experience) and viewing (I've added a photo from the 148th and 124th floors to... More

Inspired by spider lily and weighs the 100,000 elephants is an extra ordinary and one of the beautifully constructed emirates in Dubai. You are elevated to the 124th floor in less than a minutes of time and guess what you would not even know that you have reached 124th already!! It is a must place to climb on the tower... More

If admiring it from the distance is a unique experience, try to imagine climbing it to its peak. There are 2 options to climb: the first is "at the top of the sky", that allows to visit the 148th floor, being the highest lookout in the world, plus floors 125th and 124th. My opinion is very clear without any doubt,... 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.
