Known up during its construction as the Burj Dubai, the 828 metre tower was renamed Burj Khalifa on its day of opening as a tribute to Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the ruler of neighbouring Abu Dhabi and president of the UAE. Two weeks before, Abu Dhabi has lent Dubai $10 billion to pay off its debts.

The astonishing 160 floors of the tower have been known to induce neck-ache in tourists when seen from up close. Adrian Smith, the architect who worked on the building design told local paper Gulf News that Hymeocallis – a local plant in the UAE is the key inspiration of the tower. Despite being built out of glass and steel, Smith believes that the tower still has “an organic quality”.

In Febuary 2010, Armani Residences and Hotel which are located at lower floors of the tower will open the door to its guests. The world’s fastest lift carries tourists at a rate of 64 km/h to the 124th floor observation deck ‘At The Top’ in less than 60 seconds – although not always.

Just after its opening, the lift carrying 14 visitors got stuck half way to the deck at 400 meter high for an hour. Despite the accident, in the weeks following the opening queues for going up the tower were still very long.

Booking the ticket (100dhs) in advance is highly recommended. Those who consider time is money, fast track ticket are also available at 400dhs.
