To reach level 124, visitors travel in the world's fastest double-decker lifts, cruising at 10 metres per second. Visitors can step out on to the observation terrace and use telescopes to get a better look at the view.

The 125th level is 456 metres above ground, offering 360-degree views of the city. Those who are not afraid of heights can even walk across the glass floor.

At the time of writing, Atmosphere, the restaurant and lounge on Burj Khalifa's 122nd floor, is still closed. The telephone booking representative "hopes" the lounge, bar and restaurant will open in June.

Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world, standing at 829.8 metres. It has 163 floors, which are occupied by the Armani Hotel Dubai, apartments and offices, as well as the public viewing deck and restaurants. The building officially opened in January 2010.
