    Burj Khalifa (previously Burj Dubai)

    by MM212 Updated Nov 29, 2012

    One of the most ambitious construction projects in the world, Burj Khalifa is the highest tower in the world! It was built by Emaar, Dubai's premier construction company, and designed by the American architectural firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. The stunning 823-metre tower contains an extravagant shopping centre, a Giorgio Armani hotel, offices and apartments. The grounds around the tower are graced by a manmade lagoon surrounded by many residential and office buildings. On my visit to Dubai in October 2008, the Burj was very near completion and the shopping centre below it was set to open a week or two after my visit. I had to wait until November 2012 to see the final product, but unfortunately, going up the tower was sold out that day. I had to contend myself with the stunning views from below...

    The worlds tallest building

    by jwilliams2005 Written Jun 13, 2011

    If you get the opportunity, I would visit the worlds tallest building, Al Burg Khalifa. It is located at the Dubai Mall. If you purchase your ticket 24 hours in advance at the Dubai Mall; it is only 100AED. But, you do not have the time, it will cost you 300AED. I purchased my ticket in advance.

    Please bring a camera ! The tour take approximately one hour, and you will take the extremely smooth elevator to the 124th floor, in a matter of seconds. The view was fantastic. There will be a photographer there to take pictures, and you can pay for the picture when the tour has finished. Please take your time when you make your decision about photo purchases. You will enjoy this adventure.
