Burj Khalifa Dubai – highest observation deck on earth
Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest building, has opened its latest attraction – the highest man-made vantage point on earth. The brand new observation deck rises 555 metres from Downtown Dubai.
The developer of Burj Khalifa, Emaar Properties, calls the new attraction “a one-of-its-kind, must-experience journey”. A delegation of the Guinness World Records made it official: Dubai’s newest attraction is actually the ‘Highest Observation Deck’ in the world.
Burj Khalifa took over the honour from Tower in Guangzhou, China, which held the record for its observation deck at 488 metres (1,601 ft) high. If you want to go up, just press the Level 148 button (change elevators at level 125) to visit At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY. You can step out to an outdoor terrace that opens to mesmerising views of the city and beyond.
