The Burj Khalifa, Dubai

From My Travels

The tallest building in the world is the amazing Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai. It stands at a spectacular height of 829.8 m or (2,722 ft). Construction started on 21 September 2004 and it was completed and officially opened on 4 January 2010.

When these photographs were taken in 2011 the land surrounding the Burj Khalifa was being prepared for the many hotels, shopping malls and entertainment centre s. Once this area is completed it will be known as Downtown Dubai. Knowing the speed in which things happen over there, I wouldn’t be surprised if it isn’t already completed?

If you get a kick from modern building design, you will love Dubai for its ever changing architecturally designed skyline.

Dubai is a must see destination for any keen traveller and or photographer. You won’t be disappointed.

PS: If you book a trip there, I’m offering to carry your your bags for you.
