And I Climbed the Highest Building in the World

‘Cause I was on top of the world, hey! ♪
 I was on top of the world, hey! ♪
    Two months ago, I was at the 3rd highest observation deck and the s 2nd highest outdoor observation deck in the world named At The Top located on the 124th floor of the world's tallest man-made structure - Burj Khalifa. 

    Burj Khalifa (photo not mine)
    • Tallest building in the world
    • Tallest free-standing structure in the world
    • Highest number of stories in the world
    • Highest occupied floor in the world
    • Highest outdoor observation deck in the world
    • Elevator with the longest travel distance in the world
    • Tallest service elevator in the world

    The Journey Begins...
    This travelator transported me from the earth to the sky, looks so futuristic, innit? Felt like Mission Impossible...
    Experiencing 1st hand modern architectural and engineering wonder.

    The view from the observation deck:

    The shadow of the world's giant building touches the Dubai Mall, stretches over kilometres
    Looking straight up Burj Khalifa from 124th floor
    Overlooking Downtown Dubai. The roller-coaster-loop-like is the famous Dubai Fountain, world’s largest performing fountain.

     Sheikh Zayed Road in broad daylight and at night time..

    Descending from the observation deck in a high-speed elevator, travelling at 10 metres per second. Woohoo!
    Hope you enjoy the ride! ;-)
