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.

“Spectacular”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We booked ahead to visit at sunset & was well worth it.

Allow 20 - 30 mins to get from the front entrance in the Dubai Mall to the viewing platform ... The attendant at the lift was a real character who does a funny little speech as you wait for the car to arrive.

Theoutside viewing platform got a bit crowded on the west side as the sun was about to set, so check out if you can get spot from inside.

You get an amazing view down onto the Dubai fountains, so worthwhile visiting after sunset.

“Crazy high”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Great view! The top is something to see when you are there, not like anything else. The rest of the building is quite nice, try to see the little museum that has the info on how it was built and all.
