Owner description: Described as both a ‘Vertical City’ and ‘A Living Wonder,’ Burj Khalifa, developed by Dubai-based Emaar Properties PJSC, is the world’s tallest building. Rising gracefully from the desert, Burj Khalifa honours the city with its extraordinary union of art, engineering and meticulous craftsmanship. At 828 metres (2,716.5 ft), the 200 plus storey Burj Khalifa has 160 habitable levels, the most of any building in the world. The tower was inaugurated on January 4, 2010, and is responsible for a number of world-firsts. The tower became the world’s tallest man-made structure just 1,325 days after excavation work started in January 2004. Burj Khalifa utilised a record-breaking 330,000 cubic metres of concrete; 39,000 tonnes of steel reinforcement; 103,000 square metres of glass; and 15,500 square metres of embossed stainless steel. The tower took 22 million man hours to build.

Pre book before you go, its really in demand!! Try to time it with a sunrise or sunset, the views ARE amazing and this is just a must do when in Dubai!! Dont be disappointed that the lift for you doesn't go to the top 4 floors, trust me, the viewing platform is high enough!!!

What a view, you can see 360 degrees of Dubai including the Palms & the World (just sand banks at the moment) Sheikh Zayed Road skyline is incredible, getting in & out is very well organised and they dont limit the amount of time you can stay up their

A few tips for your visit:-

1 - Book online prior to visit - a good discount to be had
2 - Book late in the afternoon/early evening for the sunset (if its not to hazy)
3 - Look out for the history/story of the building on the way in
4 - The entrance is in the Mall next to the tower not at the base of the tower itself

Enjoy being in the worlds biggest tower (for now)

It's shame I had no time to take a ride to the top of this immaculate building. It will be in my plan for the next visit to Dubai.

I booked my ticket before hand which is a must because you receive such a large discount. At the same time you can choose the specific time you want to visit. I choose to come just before sunset which was very nice. It was fun watching the city while it got dark and all the lights were turned on.

My wife and I visited Burj Kalifa in late March, 2012. It is an ultra-modern building (next a shopping mall that is supposed to be the biggest in the world with about 1,200 stores) that is supposed to be the highest structure ever built. You can take the elevator to the 124th floor, where the view (on a clear day) would be no doubt magnificient. When we visited, a small sand-storm was going on, so the view was not that great but still very impressive.
It costs 100 Dirhams (about $27) to go up, but don't expect to be able to buy a ticket the day you visit. (We bought our tickets a week ahead.)
When we bought our tickets, the agent talked us into buying tickets for two "telescopes" which were really binoculars to see the area better. The cost was 25 Dirham each, which was not all that much, but what he did not tell us was that the tickets could be used on only two binoculars for 21/2 minutes each, and once you started to use them, you had to use up the entire 21/2 minutes on the same machine. So my advice is that you should take your own binoculars and don't fall for the sales talk. All in all, though, it'is a worth-while visit if you can get tickets for it.
