A Guide to At the Top and At the Top Sky, Burj Khalifa
People from all over the world consider Dubai an ideal holiday destination, for all the right reasons. The city offers a wide range of adventurous experiences, from water sports to skydiving activities! These activities give you a strong adrenaline rush, explaining why a lot of people who crave that experience-of-a-lifetime have it on their bucket lists.
One of the most famous things about this metropolis is that it has the tallest skyscraper of the world, Burj Khalifa. The 828-metre-tall structure is an iconic landmark across the skyline of Dubai. Most first-timers in the city will definitely want to take in the view from the top of Burj Khalifa. Even residents who have been in the city for years love the unbelievable spectacle that can be seen from this observation deck. Today MyBayut will briefly guide you about what to expect from At the Top, Burj Khalifa.
At the Top, Burj Khalifa – What is it?
At the Top is basically an outdoor terrace observatory that offers you 360-degree views of the city from the 124th and 125th floors of Burj Khalifa. Back when it was opened to the public in 2010, it was the highest observation deck. However, China left it behind by building its own observation deck in Canton Tower. That led the authorities to build another deck, which they did on the 148th floor, called “At the Top SKY.” Now at a height of 555 metres, At the Top SKY has surpassed its Chinese counterpart, making Burj Khalifa home to the highest observation deck in the world once again.
