Burj Khalifa Is One of the Most Visited Attraction

Over recent years, the way we explore cities and travel around them has changed dramatically. With the advent of ride hailing apps, getting to and from different places is easier and a lot more convenient. And as the data on our habits is captured, it is also now possible to announce where the most popular spots are, and Uber has done exactly that.

A recent report published by Uber lists the top 15 most visited attractions in 2018 globally, and Dubai’s very own record breaking iconic landmark, Burj Khalifa, makes the list. Number 1 on the list is New York’s Empire State Building, however the 828 metre tall tower in Downton Dubai ranks in at a very credible number 6, ahead of London’s Buckingham Palace.

Discover the Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest building, a global icon and a feat of engineering.

Truly a marvel of not just engineering but also imagination and design, the 828m Burj Khalifa has drawn visitors from all over the world since its opening in 2010. This magnificent building is the conceptual heart and soul of the city of Dubai – inspiring the viewer to imagine new possibilities.

Inspired by an abstraction of the Hymenocallis flower, the towering structure is essentially three sections arranged around a central core. Viewed from above, it is consistent with the onion-dome design frequently found across a variety of Islamic architecture, albeit on a much smaller scale.

The Burj Khalifa boasts not one but two observations decks – the two-storey At the Top on the 124th and 125th floors, as well as the world’s highest observation deck (555m) on the 148th floor.

For a truly special experience, visitors can choose to dine in the restaurant and lounge At.mosphere on the 122nd floor, or experience new heights at The Lounge, Burj Khalifa, which is spread across floors 152, 153 and 154, making it the tallest lounge on the planet.

At the base of the mighty tower you will find a vibrant hub of entertainment and dining, featuring The Dubai Mall, the choreographed musical Dubai Fountain and a plethora of tourist attractions to keep you and the fellow swarms of admirers busy.
