The Tallest Building in the World - Burj Khalifa


Of course the first thing of Dubai that everyone knows goes to Burj Khalifa, but do you know this world's tallest architecture has also broken six other records? From the highest number of stories (as everybody talks about it) and the highest outdoor observation deck in the world, to the highest occupied floor and the tallest service lift in the world, Burj Khalifa is surely one of the greatest observatory tower with elevators that have the longest travel distance in the world. This tower is over 820 meters, which makes it the tallest building in the world for now until a new one beats it in the coming century.


The Largest Shopping Mall in the World - Dubai Mall


Dubai Mall is definitely the largest shopping mall we've ever been to in our life so far. We spent almost two full days there and we still haven't been to every single corner of it. This place is more than just a shopping mall; it offers the view of Burj Khalifa, and also the world's largest manmade dancing fountain in the world. However, if you are looking for something, make sure you know the exact location or you will just get lost inside a mall...


The Largest Tunnel in an Aquarium in the World - Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo


There's one more thing that you need to know about Dubai Mall: they've also got the largest acrylic panel in the world in Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo where it is located exactly inside the shopping mall. Can you imagine how many things they have fitted inside a mall? Sharks and all different kinds of fish are inside a tank and you will be able to see it without an entrance ticket to the aquarium! But of course, you will see a lot more if you pay for that. Go check it out if you have spare time after a long shopping day!
