From Dubai Mall, the largest mall, in area, in the world, we visited the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa.
Through the mall, near the lower level food court, we joined the line to take the elevator to the observation deck. The elevator stopped at Level 124.
The largest observation deck is on levels 124 and 125 with a spiral staircase connecting the two levels. Some of our favorite photos, through glass, from the observation deck.
Very impressive highway system in Dubai. And another direction.
Dubai is located on the Persian Gulf, near the meeting of the Arabian Sea. Zeb the Duck and Chanel the Bear look out.
Is this almost the top of the world?
Some pretty heavy clouds up here. Humans, especially young humans, like to sit in unusual chairs.
We like these chairs. Yes, Dubai really is in the desert.
Sand in the distance. Let’s look straight down.
Burj Khalifa has 4 pools, in additional to lounges and health and wellness facilities. More proof that the desert was here before the city. You can imagine the view of the Dubai Fountain water show from here.
Burj Khalifa contains retail space and office space. The Armani Hotel Dubai and Armani Residences are also housed in Burj Khalifa. The world’s tallest building is 2,716.5 feet or 828 meters tall. In the lobby area of the observation deck is this stunning chandelier.
In addition to the other world records, Burj Khalifa boasts the highest library on level 123. The world records are nice, but the views are better. When in Dubai, we suggest you visit Burj Khalifa’s observation deck. We, humans, duck and bear were very happy we did.
