Watch the sunset from the Burj Khalifa
One can witness many a beautiful sunset, but something about seeing it from the top of the Burj Khalifa – the world’s tallest structure at 122 floors – makes it that more magical. The trip to the top is a short one, and the 360-degree view of the city and the golden hue of sunset is surely something to look forward to! Make sure you bring your camera to capture the moment.
