Burj Khalifa Dubai

Burj Khalifa in Dubai is the tallest man made structure in the face of the earth, standing at 829 meters the view from up there is breathtaking . It took 6 years to build this massive 164 floor building and the main reason behind it was to diversify from the oil based economy of the Gulf and to establish Dubai as a global financial centre.

The burj is truly a architectural marvel and its amazing how much mankind and come from building pyramids from stone to this amazing modern super structure. National Geographic has made a very interesting documentary on building the Burj on its series Mega Strucutures.

The Burj is a must visit for any one holidaying in Dubai. The ticket ques to the viewing deck can get pretty long, I would suggest booking tickets online and its not cheap. The cost of the tickets depends on the time of visit as well , between 10 am to 5 pm its about 125 AED  and 200 AED after 5pm to access the 124th floor. To get to the top most viewing area the cost goes up to 350 for non peak hours and 500 for peak time. Make sure to catch the water fountain show its amazing seeing the dancing fountains from  the top of Burj.
