BURJ KHALIFA - THE TALLEST BUILDING IN THE WORLD

Tourists flocked to this very spot to witness the tallest building in the world. It is compulsory for everyone to observe and admire this mega structure from the nearest distance possible. And I was contented with what I saw but there was a price to pay for it: a stiff neck.

Visitors could go up the building by purchasing tickets. When we were there at the ticket counter [it was a Wednesday], all the tickets were sold out and the next trip available would be on Monday, the following week.




Other than being known as the tallest in the world, this building also holds these records:
Tallest free-standing structure
Highest number of stories
Highest occupied floor
Highest outdoor observation deck
Elevator with the longest travel distance
Tallest service elevator in the world


I don't think there will be a building that will break the records hold by Burj Khalifa in many more years to come.
