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.

We scored some fast track tickets on groupon, and visited with family. Keep in mind that without a fast-track ticket, the queue up, and then to come down can be discouraging and time-sapping, so reserve an ample supply of patience. Parking in Dubai Mall is free, and then follow signs to AT THE TOP. Elevator ride was super-fast, and on... More

My son and I had a layover in Dubai so we went to the top of the Burj Khalifa. Be aware, it isn't cheap! It was a great experience! The view was breathtaking!

The Burj Khalifa is amazing not only as the tallest building in the world, but as an architectural achievement that defies the imagination. The view from the observation deck makes the other skyscrapers look small but they are 35- 40 stories tall. The elevator ride takes about 60 seconds going warp speed but you never "feel" it. Truly an awesome... More

When in Dubai most people visit this tower. If you do it on an organised tour you avoid the long wait. The view is very good but can get crowded.

Unless ticking the box of "I've been up the worlds tallest building" is really your thing, don't bother. Sure it's an interesting feat of engineering and the view at night is quite pretty it is an expensive ride in a very fast elevator to then wander around looking down on things and working out how you get back to ground...

Went up to the observation deck. about 1500 feet up. Awesome views. We were part of a tour so we had tickets. They were sold out for the next 2 hours. Elevator ride was 1 minute and our ears popped twice.

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.
