I always had a passion to visit Dubai. Therefore, I decided to take a break from my routine work and booked my flight tickets to Dubai. I discovered that on average about fourteen million international tourists across the globe frequently, visit Dubai. Upon arrival at the Dubai International Airport, I hired a cab and head straight to explore one of the massive structures of Dubai named ‘Burj Khalifa’.
Burj Khalifa, which is regarded as one of the world’s tallest structures, was established in the year 2010. It is one of the few artificial manmade structures, which is visible from space. It comprises of two observation decks, which is located at 148th and 124th floor respectively where the visitors can witness the mesmerizing views of the city’s skyline.
