Unveiled in February 2010, the Burj Khalifa stands 828 metres high - 320 metres taller than Taipei 101 which held the record since 2004. The Burj Khalifa currently holds seven records, including the highest occupied floor, highest outdoor observation deck - 'At the Top - Sky' and the tallest service elevator. Tickets to the observation deck are time stamped at 30-minute intervals, but if you can't wait, immediate entry is available for a price.
