I absolutely love the Burj Khalifa, it must be one of the most incredible sexy skyscrapers in the world. I'm lucky enough to have travelled to Dubai back in 2010 and was able to stay at the Burj Al Arab. I would love to visit Dubai again in a couple of years but this time with my partner and have a good closeup look at this most amazing of skyscrapers and check out the view from the top. I almost went into Architecture but ultimately went into finance at Uni, I still have a great interest in architecture. Ironically my partner is not very interested in architecture or buildings at all beyond a passing interest. But I'm sure even she would be impressed by the Burj Khalifa.

Hello beaky. How can you live in a country where in part of it, believe it or not, technically still is as well. i am genuinely interested in your views.

Slowly read what AltinD posted again. He is asking, how can you bear, to live in a country, where homosexuality, believe it or not, is still illegal as well? Then he is genuinely interested in your views
But i'm pretty sure he, or anybody else that follows this thread, could give a lesser shit about your sexuality or your views on the subject

I want to stay on topic, but, you know, situation with human rights in the UK is much better than for example in Russia. Much better...
P.s. let's stay on topic

very very beautiful tower..Is the burj Khalifa in proximity of Burj Al Arab? It will be nice to look at a picture with both of them in it.

They are 11 kilometers away. For comparison, the Statue of Liberty is 10 km away from Central Park. So it's quite hard to notice the Burj al Arab from the BK observation deck. Without sand in the air.
