We started the morning with a trip to the observatory at the Burh Khalifa. I have done this a couple of times now (Petronas Towers, Auckland, Sydney, Shanghai) and I was a bit disappointed that the observatory is “only” at like 452m (the building is >800m in height!). But the nice detail was that there is a platform OUTSIDE. Great views of course!
A nice little gimmick: they had some kind of screens where you can see how the same area looked like about 20 years ago. Summary: just dust and sand (desert). Amazing – I’m sure someone who would have been there 20 years ago would be even more surprised.
