United Arab Emirates: Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world. It has 163 floors and it’s almost 828 meters high. The Burj Khalifa was the world’s tallest man-made structure from 2008 to 2010, surpassing Taipei 101, before being surpassed by the North America One World Trade Center in New York City. A 2017 summit determined that Beijing’s yet-to-be-completed CCTV Tower will be taller than One World Trade Center, making it the new world’s tallest building.
Why visit United Arab Emirates: Burj Khalifa
1. Burj Khalifa is the destination for all amateurs of engineering and architecture, as well as for all amateurs of high-altitude observation. This building contains over 1,000 rooms that house offices, restaurants, shops, and even a museum on its 148th floor.
2. It’s considered an architectural masterpiece and model example of contemporary supertall skyscrapers. On January 4th, 2010 the Burj Khalifa was officially opened to the public by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
3. It’s the location of the highest observatory in the world and it’s also a clever location for viewing the city of Dubai. You can take a lift or an elevator to the observatory level and get a panoramic view of Dubai.
4. One of Burj Khalifa’s observation decks offers an excellent view over Downtown Dubai and its famous hotels, namely Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Jumeirah Emirates Towers, and The World Tower.
5. It’s the tallest man-made structure in the world and it holds the record for being the fastest elevator to reach the 100th-floor speed record of 73 seconds. The speed is due to a new generation of elevators and their platform baskets. No other building has gone quicker than Burj Khalifa, that’s because McDonough Braunschweig Elevator Co. released new technology after they worked together with Chinese suppliers such as Siemens AG, Sifang International, and Shanghai Tower Technology Co., Ltd.
