Burj Dubai - World's Tallest Building Opens for Business

Wow! At more than 800 metres above ground or 160 floors high the Burj Dubai towers above everything else.  There is a restaurant on the 122nd floor and a gym on the 123rd - about 440 metres up.  "Burj" in Arabic means "tower".   It is located next to the Dubai Mall and the world's tallest fountain, called the Dubai Fountain.  Construction started in January 2004.  Checkout the opening ceremony below...
