Burj Khalifa 

This modern skyscraper is currently the tallest building in the world at 2,716.5 feet and more than 160 stories. The Burj Khalifa officially opened in January 2010. There are two observation decks open to the public. You must book a ticket to visit.

And those are only a few of the many highlights.
