LifeStyle My Dubai Travel

At The Top of Burj Khalifa

I have been to different roofs and observatory in last past two years: Taipei 101 (Taiwan), Top of the Rock/Rockefeller Centre (USA), Tokyo Tower (Japan) to name a few. But I’ve never been at The Top of Burj Khalifa even I spent 3 years and a half living in Dubai. You know how it happen to ignore the touristic landmarks of your own city? Such a shame, right?! So at the end of December’15 I have decided to go at The Top of the highest building in the world – The Burj Khalifa. (Just 2 days before the famous The Address Dubai Mall Hotel got in flames on New Year Eve).

The Burj Khalifa is the tallest structure ever built – 829,8 m. (2,722 ft) and it has a very important and symbolic value for UAE.

The decision to build the building is reportedly based on the government’s decision to diversify from an oil-based economy, and for Dubai to gain international recognition. The ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum wanted to transform Dubai in famous touristic destination. The building was named in honor of the ruler of Abu Dhabi and president of the United Arab Emirates, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan which helped Dubai to pay its debts during the crisis. The building broke numerous height records and received many awards.The design of Burj Khalifa is derived from patterning systems embodied in Islamic architecture, incorporating cultural and historical elements particular to the region such as the spiral minaret. And now my favorite part – if you visit The Burj Khalifa after 6 pm you might see the Fountain show from the skies and afterwards, when you go down you can see it again from a different perspective. And one more thing if you a lucky to caught the Andrea Bocelli song (which is the best Fountain Show in my opinion) I’m warning – you’re going to cry like a baby πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Visit Dubai and call me for a coffee πŸ™‚

ps: for those who are asking this lovely dress I bought from Mydamour online shop (ig: @mydamour ) with plenty of gorgeous dresses. I will prepare a look post with this dress very soon. Stay tuned!
