Burj KhalifaFree: All time

Soaring all the way to 829m, Burj Khalifa is the world’s tallest man-made structure. This Dubai’s Tower of Babel only took 6 years to realize. It is a stunning work of art and an engineering feat. Burj Khalifa was designed to be the centerpiece of a large-scale development that include 30,000 homes, nine hotels, parkland, 19 residential towers, the Dubai Mall and a man-made Burj Khalifa Lake. For visitors, the main attraction is going up to the tower’s observation deck on the 124th floor (442m). This costs quite a bit of dirhams. However, Burj Khalifa is also just as impressive viewed from the foot of the tower (free)! While there, also check out the Dubai Fountain‘s water and light show at the lake.
