Top of the World’s Tallest Building – Burj Khalifa

As you may have heard, the world’s tallest building is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and it is quite an incredible height weighing in at 2,722′ (830 m) with 163 floors.

It is a beautiful building for being such a tall structure and it is surrounded by the incredible city of Dubai.

Can you even fathom being on the very tip-top of the building let alone taking a picture of yourself standing on top of it? How could you not be fearful of such a feat. while taking a picture of your own feet before you plummet endlessly to your death? I truly believe if you take a picture of yourself on top of the Burj Khalifa and then jump off, you will have plenty of time to Tweet or Instagram your photo before falling to your demise.

Don’t try this at home.

On Top of The Burj Khalifa – Joe McNally Takes Picture

You need to have some serious wavos(sp?) to even look out a window at the top floor let alone stand outside on the very tip of the enormous structure. Thankfully, Joe McNally, a brilliant photographer, took to Instagram and showed us exactly what it’s like!

You know how they say a picture’s worth a thousand words? Well I’m speechless.

I feel like I am looking out of an airplane window when viewing this photo! Can you even imagine how fast Joe’s heart was beating when he took this picture?

Let’s compare how big the Burj Khalifa is to many other historic buildings.

Since I live in Chicago I still am a little upset about this building beating out the Willis Tower, formerly the Sears Tower, in the race to the highest! I wouldn’t be able to take a picture on top of something about 50 feet up let alone the Burj Khalifa!

Just Incredible. Here’s a picture of the Burj Khalifa:
