It is a 160 storey sky - scrapper and an observation deck, renowned for being the tallest architectural structure in the world.
Until recently, known to be the world's tallest structure at 828 metres and 160 floors, with over 300m taller than the previous contender in Taipei, Burj Khalifa was designed to be the centerpiece of a large - scale, mixed - use development project. Already overtopping the Dubai skyline, the newly opened tower houses, nine hotels (including The Address Downtown Dubai) and a Las Vegas - inspired fountain system adds charm to this architectural marvel. The observation deck at the 124th floor serves as 2nd highest in the world after the Shanghai World Financial center, but as the highest open deck in the world at 452m. The view it offers, however, is mind blowing making it worth a visit. Also make sure to book your tickets in advance well in order to avoid last moment hassles.

The tallest building in the world looks promising on a clear day. Avoid going on a cloudy day and be sure to hold onto your phone tightly if you stick your hand out of the window at the top. You can shop for goodies at the top floor and the elevator is really fun to travel in. There's nothing much to see at the top except staring onto Dubai.

The waterfront behind the tower features a mesmerizing light and sound show which can be views from a platform from the Mall of Emirates or from within the building. Don't even think of giving it a miss. The building is really high and if you decide to take the elevator all the way up to the top, you're in for a treat of a view. The view is enough reason to visit the Burj Khalifa, apart from the exclusive dining and stay options available in and around the Burj.
