The Dubai skyline has many showstoppers that line up for a global architectural show. But that one spiker that steals the spotlight is Burj Khalifa. It has been famed as an engineer’s mind-bending structure that encapsulates residencies, bars, health clubs, Armani suites and observation decks for the curious eyeballs.
Burj Khalifa: The Tallest Building
This structure has redefined modern Islamic architecture. Defying all odds, it unapologetically stands at 829.8 metres. That’s 163 floors from base to tip. The tallest building in the world is the most prestigious address on the globe. With chic neighbours like The Dubai Mall and the Dubai Fountain, Burj Khalifa evokes plush presence and classy flavours of the Dubai lifestyle.

The entire complex of which Burj Khalifa is an eminent member consist of- Dubai Fountain, The Dubai Mall, Burj Park Island and The Address Downtown Dubai hotel. If you happen to visit the nearby Burj Park, you will be surprised to see the choice of greens in the park and how well-manicured are the most precious belts of our existence.
The illustrious tiers:

It is the highest observatory deck in the world. Swinging at 555m above sea level, you get to see ecstatic views of the metropolitan city. Day visits see long queues. So make sure you make your booking in advance. But when the sun sleeps and the stars sparkle, views are beyond imagination.
