The Worlds Tallest Building

I was in Dubai, UAE on monday and thought i would share some pics. The first one is the Burj Khalifa a.k.a. the worlds tallest building. Its over 800 meters tall and has 200+ floors. The second one is from the 124th floor looking down. It took 1 minute 9 secs to get to this floor, which is the highest floor open to the public. Hope you guys enjoy. If you want to see more pics let me know i have alot.

Wow, that is very tall - Is the design in the pool in the second shot a water jet fountain?

Yeah they do like five or 6 shows EVERY night. Its choreographed with lights and music. We sat on the balcony at T.G.I.Fridays and watched all the shows while we ate. It was incredible and very beautiful!!! Heres a video link...not my video, but just so you get the idea!!

Must be nice to have more money than you know what to do with. It is quite something though.

The UAE sure has some unbelievable buildings/architecture. Did you see the Burj Al Arab hotel?

I was there yesterday. The crazy part is that the next tallest building is about one third its height.
