The Burj Khalifa and the tall towers of Dubai

January 7th, 2010

Dubai is world famous for its enormous architectual structures. Some people love this city for its over the edge luxuries and others won't even consider Dubai a travel destination. This city isn't for the rich and famous only but one thing is for sure; I've never seen so many amazing sports cars in my life!

Dubai is known for its tall skyscrapers and is home to the the Burj Khalifa, the tallest tower in the world since 2010. This tallest man made constructure was completed in october 2009 and after 5 years of construction opened only a few days ago showing off 828 meters of tower! Well I guess Dubai is a travel destination now:)

The Burj Dubai is the world most followed construction project and pictures of slow progress were posted through the years on countless websites. To have something to compare this with; The Empire State Building in New York make's it, with antenna, up to 443 meters.

Another construction famous for its position on the ocean and amazing architectual design would be the Burj Al Arab, also known as the Arab Sail, for its form. This hotel is one of the most luxurious places in the world and the lobby can be visited by tourist on a lower budget.

A good way to escape all the 5 star madness and keep your feet on the ground is by making a visit at the Dubai Zoo. Once you've done that, chill out on the beach and you'll feel just as rich!
