Dubai building boom no longer exists. Architects and builders first used every plot of land to build popular sanctuaries for recreation and when they were left without land; The ocean was awake. Dubai’s passion for out-of-the-box thinking crossed all limits when it built the Burj Khalifa – the tallest skyscraper in the world. The panoramic view provided by the tall structure can give you tension, but the view from the observation deck is still an unforgettable memory that can last for centuries. It is an overwhelming feeling, recognizing that human creativity has crossed all levels of imagination.
Discover the cool facts as you discover high points from the Burj Khalifa. The massive man-made structure is truly appreciated only if you see Dubai through the eyes of the Burj Khalifa. The so-called “At the Top” tourists are called level 124, where they experience Dubai in its true spirit. You will know what the world is like when viewed from hundreds of floors above. It raises a state of weightlessness and the recognition of “one.” Magically, everything that looked so wild on Earth turns into a small replica that was perfectly placed on a desert pitch.
From the moment you leave the Dubai Mall to start your journey towards the observation platform, every moment you get to know new emerging technology. Jet lifts, glass ceiling walls, astonishing height, and overall richness go beyond the true feel of a strange, but cloned, man-made colony. Star Trek was just a movie, but if anything could come close to reality, it must have been Burj Khalifa.
