Overview

Burj Khalifa is the tallest building ever made in human history. This massive building was made by Samsung Engineering & Construction. Although the tower was formally opened on Jan. 4, 2010, the entirety of the interior was not complete at that time. It was designed by the architectural firm of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Adrian Smith was the architect of the Burj khalifa, and William F. Baker served as a structural engineer. The Burj Khalifa was officially named to honour the president of the neighbouring emirate of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Khalīfah ibn Zāyid Āl Nahyān. The very popular name of Burj Khalifa is the Skyscraper.

Amazing experience being in the worlds tallest building. Incredible views even from the 145 Fl. VR experience was cool, just too quick. Staff were pushy with taking your photos, the others were pleasant. The building had a nice smell made specifically for the building, which was pretty cool. I would buy tickets at least a day in advance. Lines weren't to crazy for purchase as the attendants were really quick with the process but the mall is always full of people/tourists, so you just never know.

Impressive and beautiful in design. Stay till night to watch the multimedia fountain show. Best spot to watch the show from- 30-50m distance. I guess Apple store on the 1st floor would be good to watch from. Is it worth going to 120+floor for the view? Indeed, you must go.!
