Having spent much of my life been involved in engineering, the Burj Khalifa, Dubai’s and the world’s tallest building simply blew my mind. The sheer audacity of the project was simply staggering with so many different unique challenges that had to be overcome. I recommend you purchase a ticket online here, at least a week before you visit. This allows you a chosen an entry time when an elevator will swisk you straight up the observation decks at Levels 124 & 125.
I found the initial experience was totally surreal, my mind had switched to flight mode unable to believe you could be this high and not be flying. It quickly adjusted and relaxed and we enjoyed the most incredible 360 degrees views over Dubai and beyond. On the way out there is an informative display showing you how this building was constructed which helps you appreciate the scale of this epic project.
