While in Dubai I was told that ‘Burj

is Arabic for Tower.

Our impulse visit was to

Burj Khalifa…



…and our pre-planned visit was to

Burj Al Arab….

…for its 7 course High Tea,

200 metres above sea level,

in the Burj Al Arab’s

SkyView Bar.

For opulence…

…a visit to the…

…Burj Al Arab is worth every penny spent.


For sheer enormity visit the Burj Khalifa.

At over 828 metres (2,716.5 feet) and more than 160 stories,

Burj Khalifa holds the following records:

Tallest building in the world.

Tallest free-standing structure in the world.

Highest number of stories in the world.

At 555 metres (1,821 ft) high,

At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY

on Level 148 offers visitors

a wonderful opportunity to capture

unmatched views of Dubai.


A Photo a Week Challenge:  Tower

      • It was just … all the people l knew who were living in the Ad Dammam area went to Dubai for shopping. The tales they brought back were only about shops, mostly fashion shops, and fancy brunches. Neither appeal to us. So we used our holiday times (and money) for other places. But your photos make me wonder if it wouldn’t have been worthwhile.


      • Must be honest that’s about all I had heard about Dubai, also. High Tea at the Burj Al Arab was suggested by a work colleague. Pricey but we decided it would be ‘souvenir outing’. The Dinner Cruise was great and Dinner in the Desert…both recommended. Shopping was restricted to an hour or two each day. After living out of a suitcase for a month couple with early starts we were quite happy avoiding some of the afternoon heat.


      • Sounds great. We lived in Al Khobar so all the desert thingies we did for six years. Possibly not as organised and well planned but very memorable in many other regards.


      • Know what you mean. Prior to www the first place I would visit in a new town/city was the tourist information both. Never did that in any place in Australia and probably missed out….
