Many people still mixing the names of Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab

I have some pics of BAA here:

Looks nice but the Burj Khalifa (Burj Dubai) is totally different style.

$100 for this ride and it was worth every penny tonite.

Less than sixty seconds. How do I embed a vid?

The walk to “The Top” interesting visit and well worth the money. Loads of memories of the tower being built reflected in the walk through.

I went to the top but didn't bring my camera. It is very nicely done and as OTR said it is worth the money. I had to wait long but the corridor showing the construction/history and then the view was enough to say that money was worth it. I would suggest going now before ticket prices increase. Do you reckon prices will go back down after a year or two?

Aah the elevator ride looks great! Loved the one in SWFC (Shanghai). I hope I get the chance to visit this one.

It is a little below the top of the Burj Dubai during construction. The large pole in the center is the spire.

Hotel guests should be able to go to higher floors, without paying $100, right?

If it is built like many other tall buildings, it should have stair way going all the way to the top. This is required for people to evacuate in case of fire.

Can a brave soul climb the stair well all the way to the top ?
