Marvel at Burj Khalifa, the 829.8 m (2,722 ft) high futuristic centerpiece of the modern downtown area. Upon construction in 2010, the mega skyscraper ranked as the world's tallest manmade structure. Designed by architect Adrian Smith, it incorporates patterns from Islamic art and architecture, with its tapering tiers reminiscent of traditional spiral minarets. Enjoy the view from the outdoor observation deck on the 124th floor: at 452 m (1,483 ft) above the city, you'll gain a true bird's-eye perspective on the developing metropolis below. Afterwards, stroll around the palm-lined pathways of the 11 hectare (27 acre) landscaped park, featuring flowering trees, gardens, benches, and water features. Don't miss the massive fountains at entrance to the building. Plan your visit to Burj Khalifa and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Dubai tour itinerary builder site.

  • 💯👍👀🧠🙌🙌 The tallest building in the world and a must visit attraction if you are in Dubai. A must visit venue when staying in Dubai. Impressive views from the top. Just another big building attraction? Not exactly. It's simply colossal and is a must see if you're visiting Dubai. Price is decent and there's a bunch of interesting history about the creation of the tower. I've only ever visited at night and I'm not sure why you wouldn't, the views are incredible and if you go a the right time, you can see the fountains below. I find it more enjoyable to watch from inside Dubai Mall. The only problem is that it is an incredible crowd. For this reason, precautions have been taken and you cannot set foot wherever you want, whenever you want. People are guided by harsh warnings. You are in a race to take pictures in the short time you are given. Of course, there is a solution to this, you can sit in the restaurants on the side and enjoy the evening.
