Burj Khalifa has been declared as the world’s tallest building and has surpassed the best of the best when it comes to firsts in construction and architectural design. Getting there is not a problem as you can very well see it from a distance. Standing almighty at 2,716.5 ft., one can be able to see the whole city and get a chance to take the world’s longest elevator ride going to its view deck.
As the world’s tallest, it has the number of stories and the observation deck has a panoramic view complete with wide glass enclosure which enables tourists to see all of Dubai. You can experience how it is to sit on top of the world; literally! This can give you goose bumps as you look down from where you are standing but just the fact of being there is quite amazing! Burj Khalifa is really one sight to behold.
Burj Khalifa- at the top view is absolutely unbelievable. This tall structure holds 164 levels and one is permitted to reach up to the 148th level, since the access to the levels between 148th to the 164th level is restricted to the occupants of the property. It is indeed awesome to view the city of Dubai, the down town Dubai, and the beautiful deserts from above. As Dubai grew, its buildings grew taller and taller; it is a fact that Burj Khalifa is one of most successful projects in this country.
The Burj Khalifa visit continues by boarding one of the world’s fastest elevators that runs at speed of 40 meters per second. A breath taking experience indeed – within seconds you reach the 148th level.
