The Burj Khalifa is the tallest skyscraper in the world; it is also known as Burj Dubai and measures 828 meters tall, it’s the highest building known in history.
Its complete construction cost 20,000 million dollars including the complex in which it’s located, “Downtown Dubai” which is made up of various buildings, an artificial lake and the largest shopping centre in the world, the Dubai Mall. It ended up costing five times more than what its initial budget was and took about five years to build.
It has a luxury hotel, many private residences, work offices, restaurants and even two famous viewpoints that offer amazing views of the city of Dubai. This amazingly tall building also has the fastest elevators in the world.
If we compare it with the most popular skyscraper in the world, the Empire State Building in New York, which is 431 meters high … the Burj Khalifa measures twice as much!
The second of the viewpoints, the most modern one, has become the highest in the world. Located on the 148th floor of the building at 555 meters high, it offers a view of the city that will take your breath away.
If you plan to visit it, we advise you to book tickets in advance as they sell out very quickly, the easiest and most convenient is to make the reservation online on their website. The best time to go and enjoy the views is at sunset.
Wifivox also works in the tallest building in the world! You can make your reservation here.
