View from the Top of Burj Khalifa

The view from the top of Burj Khalifa in Dubai shows the fast-growing pace of wherever the city is heading to. Since The Burj is the tallest building in the world, the other skyscrapers you see when you’re overland look nothing but skinny matchsticks from above. It is amazing to see the vast expanse of the desert that still surrounds the city—and, piece by piece, buildings are starting to rise in the middle of it.

Best time to visit: Go in the morning. And if possible, be one of the first few people to be there when it opens. I love the serenity when there are only few mortals walking around sans selfie sticks. And the sun isn’t blinding yet, good for your camera lenses when taking photos. But, if you love sunset and night views, then, you know what time to go. 



The view from the top of Burj Khalifa isn’t as impressive as New York City.

Perhaps, in 5-10 years, the city’s skyline will have changed—and by then, it might look like any other first world metropolis.

One is on the 125th floor and the other on 148th floor. They are priced differently, of course. The higher, the more expensive it is.
