Dizzying Dubai: The New Observation Deck at the Burj Khalifa

At the Top, Burj Khalifa, SKY

Travelers to Dubai, take heed. There’s a new observation deck at the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper, situated on level 148. Perched in the clouds at 1,821 feet above the ground, the new terrace—called At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY—is the highest in the world.

As reported by Business Insider, this latest record is the fourth Guinness Worlds Record title for the Burj Khalifa (including the tallest building, tallest man-made structure, and highest restaurant). Last year, 1.9 million visitors booked tickets for the observation deck on the 125th floor. Now visitors seeking Dubai’s best views can change high-speed elevators and continue up 23 floors.
