The Burj Khalifa:
The record-breaking Burj Khalifa is the tallest skyscraper in the world and stands at a height of 828 meters. It also has 163 storeys and 3,400 rooms – that’s near twice as many floors as there are London’s Big Ben! The building took over 10 years to construct, with construction starting in 2004.
The Burj Khalifa is located in Dubai, which happens to be one of the most modern and ambitious cities in the world. The city has a population of 2 million residents with around 45% of those being ex-pats. The economy in Dubai is booming and it is home to a number of iconic buildings, including the Emirates Airline Tower, which is the second tallest building in the world.
The Burj Khalifa was designed to be the most impressive building in the world. It is not only home to residences and offices but also has a hotel, shops, and restaurants. You could even say that it’s the climax of city living, as it boasts a golf course, health club, and a water park. It also has two observation decks at a height of 148 meters, which is where the majority of tourists visit. It’s not just for tourists though, as locals also use the building as a place to meet friends and family – seemingly it’s also a magnet for love!
The building boasts great views because it is on top of the business district in Dubai, so you can literally see all over the city. The Burj Khalifa is also home to the tallest public art installation in the world and is one of the most visited places in Dubai. It is a cultural landmark, which you can visit any time you like.
