Good to know

At a height of 828m it's the world's tallest building.
Originally known as the Burj Dubai it was renamed in honor of Emir of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, after Abu Dhabi rescued the emirate from financial crisis.
Book a couple of weeks in advance, especially during peak season. In low season a few days in advance will suffice, unless you want the coveted sunset time slot.
It's home to the world's highest observatory deck (yet again). When it was beaten by the Shanghai Tower it was obliged to open another deck on a higher floor.
It has the world's highest restaurant, highest club and the longest elevator travel distance.
It's designed to resemble the spidery-looking Hymenocallis flower, with the building's three wings arranged around its central core.
The elevator travels at roughly 10m per second. You'll arrive at the original observation deck in under a minute without feeling a thing.
The exterior is covered with almost 26,000 reflective panels built to resist the fierce summer heat.
It's 15 degrees cooler at the top than it is at ground level.
Access the observation deck from the lower level of the Dubai Mall near the food court.
57 million liters of water are sustainably collected each year from the condensation generated by the building's cooling system.

The inside story

Building the world’s tallest skyscraper is never easy, especially when construction is in a desert. The tower faces extremes of wind and temperature due to its height and location, so the architects had to use all of their tricks.

The building is Y-shaped, which allows more window surface but also more stability at its base. Narrowing as it rises, the tower’s “wings” begin to spiral upward, reducing mass and creating less wind resistance. It still moves in high winds, but so slowly that residents don’t notice.
