Dubai, one of the seven sheikhdoms that created the United Arab Emirates, is one of the most exciting tourist destinations in the world. Known for its astounding attractions, unparalleled shopping options, unique culture, and thriving nightlife, Dubai is a city that caters to almost all desires of tourists. The city has made a name for itself with stunning landmarks such as the Dubai Mall, the Palm Jumeirah, Burj Al Arab, and the Jumeriah Mosque. In Dubai, serviced apartments such as those offered by Ascott Park Place Dubai are a great choice of accommodation.
If you were to ask any person in Dubai what structure defines the city skyline the answer would unanimously be Burj Khalifa. Standing 828m tall, this superstructure is the tallest building in the world and is truly an awe-inspiring structure. The sheer size and grandeur of the Burj Khalifa is best described by the number of records it has smashed; the tallest building in the world, the tallest free-standing structure in the world, the highest outdoor observation deck in the world, most number of stories/floors in the world, the highest occupied floor/storey in the world; list goes on and on.
A visit to the Burj Khalifa is sure to bedazzle you, as the sight of the mega-structure from its base is truly amazing and really puts into perspective its awesome size. The Burj Khalifa offers its visitors a chance to visit the At The Top, Burj Khalifa Observation Deck; the highest outdoor observation deck in the world. You start by taking a ride up an elevator designed to simulate a spaceship up to Levels 125 and 148 of the building. Once at the top you will be treated to some of the most mind-blowing scenery of Dubai from 555m up in the air. The views from the top truly are unparalleled. Once you are down exploring the tower you can head down and witness the stunning water show at the Dubai Fountain located a few meters away from the base of Burj Khalifa.
