From the pier, drive to the Dubai Mall and board a 213-foot-long moving walkway. The ride transports you through time, from the earliest days of Dubai to the present, entertaining you with a multi-media presentation chronicling the city-state's exotic history. Take home memories of Dubai's crowning glory with a tour of the Burj Khalifa -- the tallest tower in the world. At 2,716 feet, the Burj Khalifa rises into the sky, dwarfing the surrounding skyscrapers. The tower, which opened in 2010, is the world's tallest building, outdoing the previous record-holder (Taipei 101) by an amazing 1,046 feet. The Burj Khalifa is as tall as the Taipei 101 with the Chrysler building stacked on top, measuring more than a half-mile from the base to the tip of its spire. Board the high-speed elevator, traveling at 33-feet per second, to the observation floor. As the doors open on Level 124, floor-to-ceiling glass walls provide breathtaking 360-degree views of the city, desert and ocean sprawled beneath. If you wish, step outside onto the open-air terrace to enjoy another perspective of the sweeping spectacle around you. There is time to shop 'At The Top' and take home a souvenir of your visit. Conclude your tour with free time at leisure explore the Dubai Mall and the wide range of restaurants, bars and cafés dotting the Dubai Lake area, before returning to the pier.
Please note: All personal belongings, including bottles of water, purses, handbags, etc, must be checked prior to the visit; only a personal camera can be carried in the elevator.
