At the 124th Floor of Burj Khalifa

We headed to Dubai last April 27 to have the chance to be part of a world record. We went up to the 124th floor of Burj Khalifa, presently the tallest building in the world. My whole family and some close friends were with us to savor the opportunity. Who knows, a few months from now, we may not be here in the U.A.E. anymore. And the Burj Khalifa will surely be overshadowed as the world’s tallest building sooner rather than later. So, for a few hours “At the Top” we were part of the record-breaking building.

At the lobby, you will see this replica of the Burj Khalifa

At the bottom of the replica, you will see the relevant records of the building.

As you go out of the building, there is this hallway with a gallery of the people involved in the project.

  1. Did the gallery of people involved in the project include the thousands of foreign workers, most from other parts of Asia, who sweated in the heat to build that monument to “the tallest”? Did you find out what the occupancy rate is? How did you enjoy the rest of your visit?

    • As far as I know the gallery only showed the “big people” involved in the project. Of course it is a multi-national lot. I did not try to find out the occupancy rate. As for the rest of the visit, our group had lunch then went out to take photos of the tower from the outside. Thanks anyway, for visiting…
