Bhurj Khalifa & Dubai mall
Dubai has now the bragging rights of having the tallest building ever in the world .
One needs to book a time slot to expreince the breathtaking 360 view of the entire dubai from the 126th floor of the bhurj Khalifa , and our was at 12.30 pm .
There is quite big line to just enter the lift which takes you to the 126 floor , and to be very honest it at times moves slowly and is quite irritating
Finally you enter the lift and some wonderful ambient music is played while the display in the lift very fast increases from 0-126 its I think not even a min that you are on the 126 floor . The lifts are just super fast .
Once you enter the deck you see a huge glass area through which you see the entire Dubai . My wife like all others was very excited and was taking many pictures . Since the deck is circular in shape you can walk all around the deck and enjoy the 360 degree view of dubai and beyond .
After spending some 20 mins there , we headed back to the lift which again in less then 1 min took as to the lowest level .
The Bhurj Khalifa and dubai mall are inter linked to each other so our next visit was there means a perfect way to reduce your bank balance
Dubai mall is beautiful and a host for all top class brands including a Armani cafeteria. We did have a nice time shopping and then having a nice huge cheesecake in Cheesecake Factory in the mall which is quite full and had a waiting of 45 mins for a table for 2 .
Dubai mall also has a beautiful aquarium which has some real exotic fish inside . We made some pics there too .
But the most interesting place in dubai mall is the parking area infront of the mall which commands some very very expensive premiuim to park your car and is generally " show your car " place for the rich and famous of dubai mainly the Arabs .
Cars mostly parked there are range rovers , ferraris , jaguar , porshe and many high end cars .
Posting now some pics of bhurj Khalifa , dubai mall , aquarium and some drool worthy cars parked in the parking place along with 1 pic of me and my wife .
