Must see · Observation Deck · Architectural Building
Marvel at Burj Khalifa, the 829.8 m (2,722 ft) high futuristic centerpiece of the modern downtown area. Upon construction in 2010, the mega skyscraper ranked as the world's tallest manmade structure. Designed by architect Adrian Smith, it incorporates patterns from Islamic art and architecture, with its tapering tiers reminiscent of traditional spiral minarets. Enjoy the view from the outdoor observation deck on the 124th floor: at 452 m (1,483 ft) above the city, you'll gain a true bird's-eye perspective on the developing metropolis below. Afterwards, stroll around the palm-lined pathways of the 11 hectare (27 acre) landscaped park, featuring flowering trees, gardens, benches, and water features. Don't miss the massive fountains at entrance to the building.

  • Burj Khaliva is literally standing with your head in the clouds, although there are no clouds. Especially beautfiul with the sunset. It is not cheap to go up, but worth the price.  more »
  • The fast elevators to the top of this iconic structure are a marvel. Instead of offering refreshments, they should have guided tours to point out the various other buildings, etc.  more »
  • The magnificent, tallest structure and building in the world. Truly a beast. Had an amazing time at the Burj Khalifa. Aura was beautiful and lively at the fountain, right in front of the building. Once we reached the top, all the time in queue was worth the wait. Amazing views of Dubai from the top. It’s amazing how the lift takes you to the top in quick seconds. Like they’ve quoted literally “from the earth to the sky”. Burj Khalifa is a truly a shining symbol of what Dubai strives for and what they can accomplish.
  • The Burj Khalifa looks awesome especially at night. It was just unfortunate that it was not lit up as colorful as I had expected. But still, it looks majestic. I also saw the floating fountain /dancing fountain at the area. I met some friendly tourist there and I had a wonderful time here. There are many cafes and restaurants at all the surrounding area and was just full of people.
