A true tale of determination when society dictates so many limitations, Dubai has broken records on the greatest of scales.

In January 2010, the Guiness Book of Records awarded Dubai with the Tallest Man Made Structure on earth. Measuring an astounding 828m into the air, the Burj Khalifa Tower was crowned; King of its kind.

It houses 163 floors of Residential and corporate space, At.Mosphere Restaurant as well as the Exclusive Armani Hotel and Spa, and of course the lookout deck and curio shop, aptly named “At The Top”.
At the base of the building, a site in the glass roof allows you to see where you are headed.

Before you head into the elevator, a guide will tell you a bit of the story behind this beautiful building, and then usher you into the lift which takes you up 124 stories in a matter of seconds, with such ease.

Although, only on the 124th floor and 452m from the sandy desert below, the viewing deck towers above the surrounding buildings, which are mostly engineering feats on their own.

Take a look through the digital Telescopes surrounding the Viewing Deck.

It’s as though the end of the earth is visible…

On your way back down, the story behind the Burj Khalifa and its creators is told along the walls…

After Dark, the Dubai Fountains at the base of Burj Khalifa are absolutely spectacular… Shooting over 100m into the air at times, they will stir your emotions, and possibly even cause your eyes to water…

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise… The Burj Khalifa should be on your bucket list.
