The endless expanse of sand is literally at your feet, even though you won’t notice it as you move through the bustling city.
On the 148th floor, 555 meters high, is another observation deck. This is the world’s highest panorama viewing platform. The elevator that takes you up, is already an experience by itself. With 42 km/h you will fly up in no time.
Burj Khalifa was built between 2004 and 2010. In the summer of 2007 it earned the title “Tallest Building in the World”, when it overtook the 508-meter Taipei 101 Tower in Taiwan.
Surrounding the tower you will find a multifunctional complex with fountains, the world’s largest shopping centre Dubai Mall, restaurants and terraces. The fountains are a attraction by themselves; every afternoon and evening they provide a real show with music and lights which you should not miss out on.
