Burj Khalifa, Dubai

Explore

We all know it is the tallest man-made structure in the world, standing at 829.8m, open on January 4, 2010. But what you might not know is that aside from holding the World Record for being the tallest building in the world,Burj Khalifa holds other World Records:

  • tallest freestanding structure in the world, highest number of stories in the world,
    highest occupied floor in the world,
  • highest outdoor observation deck in the world,
  • elevator with longest travel distance in the world, and
  • tallest service elevator in the world. It has the longest single running elevator, which is 140 floors.
    The elevators go 10 meters per second and are among the fastest in the world. It took us approximately only one minute to reach the observation deck on the 124th floor.

    Isn't the view just spectacular!

    The Burj Khalifa is not only the pride but also the joy of Dubai, towering above the desert city and holding over 160 stories worth of the finest steel and glass in the world. If you’re visiting the UAE, you’ll seriously be missing out on a treat if you don’t add a visit to this landmark to your itinerary. Why? Well, as Marks and Spencer’s would say, it’s not just any tower – it’s the Burj Khalifa tower.
