Burj Khalifa, Dubai, United Arab EmiratesI missed the grand opening of Burj Khalifa by a week or so when I was last in Dubai and so I wanted to return and see what it was like from the observation deck. I managed to arrange it so that I got a day in Dubai on my return home from Europe so I booked a tour of Burj Khalifa. I also booked a night at a hotel on the lake as it provided 24 hour rooms which made it very convenient with my late night arrival and departure.
I arrived at the Palace Hotel late in the evening but not too late to see the Dubai Fountain do it's stuff. Note the boat out on the lake getting an up close and personal view of the performance.
