Personally I am scared of heights. But because of popular demand I have come to Burj Khalifa.

7 Amazing Burj Khalifa Facts

  1. In order to prove to the world that Dubai is indeed in a class of its own, the city planners together with private companies came up with the tallest building in the world – The Burj Khalifa.
  2. Did you know the Khalifa holds the world record for being the tallest freestanding structure in the world?
  3. At 828 metres, the Khalifa is 3 times the height of the Eiffel Tower and twice as tall as the Empire State Building.
  4. The building design takes after the Greek flower, Hymenocallis.
  5. The name is translated as Beautiful Membrane in Greek. Well, I am inclined to agree.
  6. This tall structure sure is a thing of beauty. And it’s elevators are fast!
  7. The Khalifa has 54 elevators which have a dizzying speed of up to 40 miles per hour. Considering the fact that heights make me queasy, I should be getting out of here!!
