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.

I would rate Burj Khalifa as one of the most prettiest modern building in the world. The structure is amazing. Bear in mind that the system while entering is a bit disorganized. Pay slightly more for the fast track ticket, you will be faster probably by hours when the queue is super crazy. Bear in mind that the fast track ticket could be use for exit too- go to a staff and tell them you are having a fast track ticket (I have been in the queue for 30 minutes before i realized the fast track ticket could be used for exiting too)

Our kids soo wanted to do this. It is a cool view from up there. However given how flat Dubai is you can get a similar overview from many hotels as well. Day was reasonably clear but there is still a limit to how far you can see.
Our kids however, were excited to have been in the worlds tallest building etc so that was fine.

We had pre-booked and all-in it took us probably 45 mins queuing to get up (they fast tracked us as we had a baby with us), 15 mins up there and then 15 mins in queue to get down.

Definitely worth a trip to At the Top. Be warned, pay extra for fast track. Queues are very long otherwise!!

A fantastic construction, most inpressive, one of a kind! A breathtaking panaroma at sunset from the 123 floof where you can admire Dubai at its best, take pictures and have a cup of coffee on the sofa. Worth coming back!
