About 828 meters tall and with 162 floors, Burj Khalifa is one of Dubai's landmarks. There is an observation deck on the 124th floor that visitors can reach by the elevator in one minute. The entire Dubai can be overlooked through the glass walls of the 124th floor observation deck, including the Palm Jumeirah, Burj Al Arab Hotel, and Dubai's beautiful beaches. Sunset is a good time to make the trip up the tower to look at the views. You can see the day turning into night on the horizon, the sun setting in the west, and the city lights being switched on.

Dubai's landmark building and major tourist attraction is the Burj Khalifa, which at 829.8 meters is the tallest building in the world and the most famous of the city's points of interest.
For most visitors, a trip to the observation deck on the 124th floor here is a must-do while in the city. The views across the city skyline from this bird's-eye perspective are simply staggering.
The slick observation deck experience includes a multimedia presentation on both Dubai and the building of the Burj Khalifa (completed in 2010) before a high-speed elevator whizzes you up to the observation deck for those 360-degree views out across the skyscrapers to the desert on one side and the ocean on the other.
Nighttime visits are particularly popular with photographers due to Dubai's famous city-lights panoramas.
Buy your Burj Khalifa "At the Top" Entrance Ticket in advance to avoid long line-ups, especially if you are planning to visit on a weekend.
Back on the ground, wrapping around the Burj Khalifa, are the building's beautifully designed gardens, with winding walkways. There are plenty of water features including the Dubai Fountain, the world's tallest performing fountain, modeled on the famous Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas.
Burj Khalifa is the tallest building and tallest free-standing structure in the world, measuring more than 2,716 feet high. This impressive architectural feat has more than 160 stories to its name, affording unforgettable views of Dubai below. Visitors will want to reserve tickets ahead of time for privileged access to the world's highest observation deck, At The Top, Burj Khalifa SKY. Then, head to the world's highest lounge, The Lounge, Burj Khalifa, for afternoon tea or Champagne at sunset.
While all United Arab Emirates countries boast architectural superlatives, the tallest of the futuristic towers – and the tallest building in the world – is the slender silver and glass Burj Khalifa. Even though you can see it from everywhere, to experience the 148th-floor Observation Deck without lines, and feel the breeze whooshing past the partial glass barriers, is a bucket-list adventure many think warrants the sky-high admission fee.
Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world ever made by man. Starting from passing the height of Taipei 101 as the tallest building in the world on July 21, 2007. On September 12, 2007, Burj Khalifa managed to pass the height of the CN Tower as the world's tallest free structure and on April 7, 2008 the tallest structure in the world from The KVLY-TV tower in Blanchard, North Dakota, United States was successfully passed. The tallest structure ever built by man, the 645.4 m (2,120 ft) Warsaw Radio Tower built in 1974 (but collapsed during renovations in 1991) was successfully passed on 1 September 2008
