The Burj Khalifa’s no joke. It’s Dubai’s crown jewel.
Standing tall at 142 stories, 828 metres above the ground, the Burj Khalifa is visible from most spots in the city.
Visit Dubai have released a 360-degree video from the very peak of the Burj Khalifa, giving you the chance to see what it’s like to gaze down upon Dubai from the city’s (and the world’s) tallest building.
Warning, it may induce vertigo…
The video shows a 30-second timelapse of a day in Dubai, with your head among the clouds.
Down on the roads, if you look real close, you can see the day-to-day bustle of Sheikh Zayed Road and the surrounding streets.
Pay attention to the Burj Khalifa’s shadow changing place over the course of the day.
It’s easy to forget just how monstrous the Burj Khalifa is until you’re standing on top of it.
