Burj Khalifa the world's tallest building

It's the world's tallest building and if you like buildings you will like this one. It looks like a crystal marvel, and stands shiny and tall next to the Dubai mall in the UAE. This 163 floor building lives up to the name skyscraper. Apparently it's not easy to breathe at the top, and tourists are only allowed up to 124 floors to the viewing gallery. The skyscraper is 829.8 metres or 2,722 ft tall, and took six years to complete. Official opening of the building officially was in 2010
It is more than double the height of the Eiffel Tower (Paris) and almost double that of the Petronas Towers (Kuala Lumpur).

Construction never really stops in Dubai although it already looks like a spanking new city. Here is a building under construction with the Burj Khalifa in the background.
