So, the Burj Khalifa - the world’s tallest tower - is finally flinging open its doors today. There are going to be fireworks and everything.

We’ve done some detective work and found out what exactly is in there, floor by floor, from the top down. Here it goes…..

160 upwards
This is the technical bit, or the spike. The bit that actually makes our Dubai tower the biggest in the world - so there.

156-159
This is the bit that houses the communication and broadcast centre of the tower - the floors where the magic happens, so to speak.

155
This is kind of the mechanical epicentre of the tower. It’s also the highest mechanical point of the tower.

139-154
These floors comprise the posh bits, or the ‘Corporate Suites’, as they’re officially known. You might even be lucky enough to work here in the future.

136-138
These floors are full of more mechanical bits and pieces.

125-135
More of those posh ‘Corporate Suites’ we were on about earlier. Nice.

124
This is the official top bit. It’s called ‘At The Top’ even though it’s not. We’re not exactly sure why.

123
This floor is the tallest Sky Lobby. Prepare for the best views of Dubai you will ever see.
