See Dubai from the Burj Khalifa

The world’s tallest building obviously has the most amazing views

See Dubai from the Burj Khalifa

Even if you don’t usually have a head for heights, while in Dubai you need to take a trip up the Burj Khalifa.

The awe-inspiring Burj Khalifa still stands proud as the tallest building in the entire world – hanging up by the clouds an incredible 828 metres above the ground. The iconic landmark opened in January 2010, six years after work begun on the history-making project. Visitors can not only marvel at the glittering sight from ground level, they can take a look down on the world from inside Burj Khalifa itself.

As befitting the world’s largest building, you can enjoy majestic views from the world’s highest observation deck, 555 metres (that’s a dizzying 1,821 feet) up in the air on the 148th floor of the 160 floor skyscraper. 

For a different experience (and still pretty high up to be fair) you can gaze out from the 125th floor deck, a mere 456 metres high.
Or you could stop off at floor 122 and visit aptly-named At.mosphere, where you can enjoy classy European food along with amazing views from the world’s highest restaurant.
