How to see the 8 kilometer shadow of Burj Khalifa in Dubai
After all, it is not surprising that the most gigantic skyscraper in the world, casts the biggest - an eight-kilometer shadow. At sunset, it seems as if it stretches across the city trying to touch the waters of the Persian Gulf with its top.

How to do?

1. Purchase a ticket at the ticket office or book in advance on the official website in order not to stand in line.
2. Rise to the observation deck (124 or 148 floors) or to the restaurant (122 floor), from here you can see an equally beautiful panoramic view.
