World's Coolest Observation Decks

Burj Khalifa

Kevpix/Alamy

Burj Khalifa, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Note that while the observation deck at the newest world’s tallest building (around 2,717 feet) is called At the Top, it’s not. It’s on the 124th floor of 163. What it offers is massive double-height windows, an open-air terrace, and an unparalleled perspective, which tends to make the real Dubai look a lot like the architectural models you see on display over town.

Observe This: Buy tickets online well in advance if you want to visit at sunset. Note that a special $108 ticket will allow you to cut the line. —Karrie Jacobs
