If you plan to visit Dubai make sure to add the attractions in Burj Khalifa Tower to your list of things you must see. Standing at over 828 metres, this remarkable example of high tech architecture is the tallest building in the world. It is a world-class destination considered the masterpiece of downtown Dubai.
Records mention Dubai as far back as 1095. The first settlement named Dubai town dates back to 1799. Today, Dubai has developed into a world-class business hub. The economy was originally based on the oil industry, but with the emirate’s new business model major revenues are now derived from real estate, tourism and financial services.
Recently, Dubai has attracted world recognition through various large construction developments and sporting events. However, this extra attention has highlighted human rights and labour issues faced by the largely Asian workforce.
The Burj Khalifa Tower is located in the heart of Dubai. It is surrounded by luxury, five star hotels, fabulous shopping destinations and a wide variety of entertainment options. The tower houses Burj Khalifa residences, private residences, corporate offices, hotel guestrooms and suits, a four story fitness club, fine dining restaurants and an observation deck.
The design of the park was inspired by the unique Burj Khalifa triple-lobed shape. It spreads out over eleven hectares featuring luscious greenery and spectacular water displays. The landscape includes three distinct areas which serve the three main uses of the tower: hotels, residences and office spaces.
The three areas are linked by the pedestrian walkways and the tower. Visitors are welcomed with astonishing stone paving patterns at each entry. The main entrance is encircled by a palm court, fantastic water features, open green spaces and a luscious forest grove above.
The Observation Deck
The Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai has aroused more curiosity and intrigue than any other building in modern history. From the observation deck you can see for yourself what it feels like to be at the top of the world.
Your visit begins at the reception area. From here you are guided through an amazing presentation chronicling the exotic history of Dubai and the fascinating story behind the Burj Khalifa aboard a 65 metre moving walkway, called a travelator. The travelator pauses briefly to give you a close-up view of the amazing height of Burj Khalifa.
A super high speed elevator takes you the rest of the way to the top. As the elevator doors open you are greeted with floor to ceiling glass walls that offer a breath-taking, unobstructed view of the city, the surrounding desert and the ocean.
