Burj Khalifa, Dubai… a little light show…

The Burj Khalifa is a spectacular building and landmark in Dubai.

At over 828 meters (2,716.5 feet) and more than 160 stories, Burj Khalifa holds the following records: Tallest building in the world, tallest free-standing structure in the world, and the highest number of stories in the world (at the moment).

It dominates Dubai, can be seen from everywhere in the city and it is extraordinarily graceful for such a mammoth construction.

My son was visiting me, so we did the tourist trail and watched the early evening light show on the facade.

It was quite an event.

A few photos below, they show how spectacular the building looks with at night with the changing light show…

    • Thank you, Rohvannyn. I wish I’d had the incentive to go downtown at New Years Eve to watch the incredible light show that is done every New Year on the Burj facade, but I’m not into crowds, so sadly I don’t have any fantastic shots of the incredible lighting that is done, it can be googled, so this is just my small take on it from a tourist visit!

      • I’d rather see the things that happen when giant crowds aren’t there – after all, EVERYBODY takes pictures of that stuff. I like the lesser known sights, so thanks again for sharing!
