Marvel at Burj Khalifa, the 829.8 m (2,722 ft) high futuristic centerpiece of the modern downtown area. Upon construction in 2010, the mega skyscraper ranked as the world's tallest manmade structure. Designed by architect Adrian Smith, it incorporates patterns from Islamic art and architecture, with its tapering tiers reminiscent of traditional spiral minarets. Enjoy the view from the outdoor observation deck on the 124th floor: at 452 m (1,483 ft) above the city, you'll gain a true bird's-eye perspective on the developing metropolis below. Afterwards, stroll around the palm-lined pathways of the 11 hectare (27 acre) landscaped park, featuring flowering trees, gardens, benches, and water features. Don't miss the massive fountains at entrance to the building.

Burj Khalifa reviews
I'm not a lover of heights but if your in Dubai you have to go up the Burj Khalifa, its quite an experience and the light show is fantastic more »
I’ve saw Burj Khalifa dozens times but this huge and beautiful building always attracts me and I’m sure not only me. Every time I look on this high tech construction like at the first time 😄 This..... more »
The magnificent, tallest structure and building in the world. Truly a beast. Had an amazing time at the Burj Khalifa. Aura was beautiful and lively at the fountain, right in front of the building. Once we reached the top, all the time in queue was worth the wait. Amazing views of Dubai from the top. It’s amazing how the lift takes you to the top in quick seconds. Like they’ve quoted literally “from the earth to the sky”. Burj Khalifa is a truly a shining symbol of what Dubai strives for and what they can accomplish.
The Burj Khalifa looks awesome especially at night. It was just unfortunate that it was not lit up as colorful as I had expected. But still, it looks majestic. I also saw the floating fountain /dancing fountain at the area. I met some friendly tourist there and I had a wonderful time here. There are many cafes and restaurants at all the surrounding area and was just full of people.
