Owner description: 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.

“Espetacular views”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Everything is huge in this attraction.
The other skyscrapers look like dwarf buildings from the observation deck. Amazing.
I agree with other reviews when they write about the quality of the exhibition before we go up. And i have to also write about the staff that is very friendly and dedicated.
I loved the possibility of seeing the past and the night vision through the free binoculars.
We booked ahead in the net and it's is a very good advise.
Don't miss this.

“real top of the world!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

This visit, though somewhat pricey, was an indescribably exciting one! Suggestion: book your tickets online, they are much cheaper than buying on the spot. Nicely managed, worth the money spent!

“A great visitor experience”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

I've visited many observation decks in various cities, but I'd say this is one of the best. The views over Dubai are amazing, but the best part of the experience was the exhibition about the building's construction and the records that it has broken. Book ahead to save yourself money and time in Dubai.

“Best views in dubai”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Not only is this a gorgeous building, architecturally designed to represent a flower, it offers the best views of dubai and really helps you see and visualise the shape and format of dubai. Go on a clear day or night and book ahead as it was heavily booked. But they limit numbers so it is not crowded at the top. Highly recommended. We went at night which was gorgeous but during the day would be great too. We did not realise but there is a restaurant the floor below which could be fun to book,
