Finally, Burj Dubai, or Burj Khalifa has been officially opened by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashed al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai last night 4 Jan 2010. Which also marks his 4th year as Ruler of Dubai.
Here are some pics I took when I went up the Burj, and some pics from the opening night as well. Enjoy!
Pic from the opening night, with the fireworks doing their stuff!
More Fireworks from 4 Jan 2010!
This was taken from the 124th floor, or the observation deck. The highest floor is 158.
You can see how small other skyscrapers below are!
My favorite picture! The shadow of the Burj intersects SZR Junction 1, or the Defence Roundabout (old name).
A good view of the Business Bay
How small is Dubai Mall from this altitude?!
Ok, the engineer in me had to take this shot! The cleaning cradle is seen here from level 124 all the way to the supports much higher up. Cool view :)
This is a pic of the Address hotel (that I hate so much, but that's another story)
Enjoy and copy with referencing to this blog, coz these pictures are all mine.
