See unbelievable views from the top of one of the worlds' tallest buildings, the Burj Khalifa
Upon arriving in the Middle Eastern city of Dubai, you will be mesmerised by the skyline that is dominated by powerful, tall buildings piercing the sky with modern architecture and breath-taking designs. One of these is the world famous Burj Kahlifa – a cultural icon that represents the development and growth of the city over the past decades.
As one of the tallest skyscrapers in the world at a height of 830m, the structure opened in 2010 after five years of construction. Located in Downtown Dubai at the 'First Interchange' along Sheikh Zayed Road in the main business district, the name of this attraction is in honour of the ruler of Abu Dhabi, Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Since its inception, it has broken various height, design and architectural records.
The building serves many purposes labelled as a ‘mixed utility tower’ - a tourist attraction, private residence, corporate facility, premium office space, entertainment complex, hospitality and dining venue in addition to hosting a remarkable observation tower. This outstanding building is a must-visit attraction to marvel at during your time in Dubai due to its impressive architectural design and modern engineering.
The serviced apartments at Fraser Suites are a short 20-minute drive to the tower, making us one the best luxury serviced apart hotels near Burj Khalifa. At Fraser Suites Dubai, we invite you to experience luxurious accommodation while staying in one of the closest hotels near to the Burj Khalifa and other popular visitor experiences.
Explore one of the most fascinating attractions in the world
You will be welcomed to the entrance of the building with stunning floral arrangements, designed in geometric patterns to represent the geometry of the tower. Once you step inside the elevator, you’ll notice music playing which features special soundtracks developed especially for the Burj Khalifa. The beats and rhythm increase as the elevators ascend to their destinations.
Did you know that the building serves as the world’s highest electrical substation? At floor 155 an electrical powerhouse keeps the energy flowing throughout the structure. Level 153 is home to the highest occupied floor in any building in the world – a private terrace and venue, this floor is only used for corporate and private events. The clever design of the building means that every room in the structure flooded in natural light – one of the key main features of the construction process.
See the incredible views from the Observation deck
There are little places in the world where you can stand at 555metres up in the air and enjoy the magnificent views of a sprawling desert city – and in Dubai you can do just that. The Burj Khalifa boasts one of the highest outdoor observation decks in the world. The 148th floor features an augmented reality lounge and complete visitor experience. Be awed at the city laid out before you on the ground and gain a unique look at Dubai from a bird’s eye view. This is a very popular activity for tourists, so be sure to pre-book tickets. To manage the daily rush of sightseers, visitors are able to purchase tickets in advance for a specific date and time and achieve a 75% discount on tickets purchased. If you are lucky enough to be there during a clear day when there is a low sea tide, you may be able to see the shores of Iran from the top of the skyscraper.
Marvel at the magnificent Dubai fountain
As you walk through the grounds of the Burj Khalifa, take the time to watch the stunning display from Dubai fountain – a mesmerising $217 million fountain system that is illuminated by over 6,000 lights, and 50 coloured projectors, as it shoots water 150m into the air to the tune of classical and contemporary music. This beautiful area presents the perfect opportunity to take some memorable photographs.
