I'm very disappointed that Ghost Protocol isn't in 3D. While I'm not into the 3D craze (Avatar and Polar Express are the only movies I've ever watched in 3D), I would love to get to see the Burj Khalifa in more than 2D for a change. Of course nothing would be better than visiting it in person...but no time/money for that.

Whoever says the design is crap and so is the area around it, just have to take a stroll around both day and night, break his neck looking up, enjoying the fountain show and everything the area has to offer .... then come back and say if it sucks or not.

n00bs, every time I do that (and that's allooooooot), the experience is just priceless.

Get a shot of the banks of the Creek and you will not see any empty plots of land, just a sea of buildings!

Many friends told me about Dubai that it's a superficial city. But I'm not agree with them 'cause for me Dubai and this tower are very very awesome !!! I wish other similar towers will grow in the desert! lol

What's the difference of "old" lights with those new around Burj Khalifa?

Hi Sale.

Cool.

They bathe the structure in multi-colored light ?
Are they located on the podiums / on the BK site?
