Those who've watched Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol should remember the part where Tom Cruise, as Ethan Hunt, doing the most death-defying stunt at the world's tallest building. That building turned out to be the Burj Khalifa, located in Dubai, UAE. Well, if you are an OFW working in Dubai, guess this how your dream job will be; working at the world's tallest building in Dubai. Precisely, just what is the Burj Khalifa and why this building turned out be the perfect adventurers' heaven.
Opened to the public in early 2010, Burj Khalifa is definitely 828 meters (2,716.5 feet) tall and it's more than 160 floors. It's known to be the tallest building in the world, tallest free-standing structure in the world, highest number of stories in the world, and the rest. If you were someone as annoying as the Annoying Orange who is brave enough to visit the Observation deck on the 124th floor, you might end up saying "Hey! I can see my house from up here!", which sounds annoying if anyone in the business suit heard what you said. Most people in their business suits are just one of a many people are exploring through the world's tallest building and if you were one of the people working on this building, you should never realize how lucky you are to be part of the heritage.
This is just one of the places that made me stuffed and if I have the cash, I want to go there because this is the BEST place to go for an action and adventure in Dubai. If only someone as brave as Tom Cruise could brave through the endless floors of Burj Khalifa, maybe this building should have been called "Palace in the Sky" because such tall building will take you to the skies. Imagine if I could jump through the top of the Burj Khalifa? That's one cool adventure but I should better need a parachute on that altitude because pretty soon, my body would be ripped off from such high speeds. This is what happens when "Speed vs. Gravity" comes full circle.
I wanna go there! I wanna go to Dubai! This building is immensely cool! This is the best adventure heaven you can only seen in the United Arab Emirates.
