Burj Khalifa, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

3 of 28

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
