Burj Khalifa, an in depth look
The tallest building in the world can be found in Dubai. With a dizzying height of 828 meters, the tower is double the height of the famous Empire State Building in New York
The construction began in 2004 and was finalized in January 2010, and it involved a total of 12,000 people from 30 countries. It was formerly known as Burj Dubai, the Dubai Tower. This huge skyscraper astonishes with its number of residential floors, something that had never been done before.
If we compare this with the most famous tower in the world, the Empire State Building of New York, we can get an idea of the magnitude of this architectural work. The Empire State reaches 431 meters, including its antenna. Burj Khalifa reaches the height of 828 meters, double the height of the US tower.
Burj Khalifa offers an extraordinary experience. There are two viewpoints at different heights. The first, on the 124th floor at a height of 442 meters. This used to be the only lookout tower. Until, that is, recently the second viewpoint was opened, reaching the height of 555 meters in the 148th floor, offering views that are simply dazzling.
Considering that tickets to enjoy Burj Khalifa sell out immediately, it is advisable to book well in advance. To do this, it is best to buy tickets through the website www.tickets.atthetop.ae
The perfect moment to enjoy the view from Burj Khalifa is undoubtedly the sunset. In the event of it not being possible to get tickets for this time of the day, we suggest visiting it during daytime.
Another must-see is the artificial lake near the Burj Khalifa, the famous Dubai Fountain, one of the most beautiful sites in the city. This source, the Dubai Fountain, is comparable with the famous Bellagio fountain in Las Vegas, a spectacles that a tourist should not miss.
