Burj Khalefa Dubai Reviews
See the world's tallest man made structure May 06, 2010
Heads up everyone, the observation deck on the burj khalefa is open once again for tourists, so if you're in the area check it out!
To get to the building you must burrough through the dubai mall, which is this huge mall having lots of fashion stuff for sale. It also has lots of tasty cafe;s and good places to relax. When you get in the mall ask one of the workers how to get to the entrance because it is very tough to find.
When walking through the mall you will see a huge shark tank, that means you're on the right track :)
To enter the tower you need a ticket. There are two classes. One is 100 dirham and you come back later to go to the top. However if its not crowded you can get a 100 dirham ticket and go up right away. I got lucky and that is what happened. The last few tickets available for each spot are listed as "a few left" or something like that on the board, these will cost you 400 dirhams!
So its your basic freakisouly huge building. The thing I find ammusing is that the building may be 1/2 a mile tall, but it doesn't really serve a purpose saying dubai is full of empty space (you can see that from thetop), and is like the size of columbus ohio. Just saying!
Even though the building is uneeded it provides a spectacular view. The cooleset thing was that there is an outdoor deck. Also the elevator only takes like 30 seconds to get to the top, which is fairly impressive.
So this building is worth a visit, it is the world's tallest!
