Skyscrapers don't get any taller than Burj Khalifa, currently the tallest structure on the planet. Soaring 828 meters 2,717 ft, with more than 160 stories, the building has a stepped design that narrows as it climbs syringe-like to the sky. Burj Khalifa is part of the massive Downtown Dubai complex of offices, hotels, shopping malls, entertainment precincts and apartment buildings.Ride the elevator to the 124th-floor Observation Deck for astounding views over Dubai and the Arabian Gulf, or take a wander through the gardens and fountains of Burj Khalifa Park.Shop till you drop in Dubai Mall, the world's largest shopping mall. Along with a huge variety of shops - including Galeries Lafayette, Bloomingdale's, and Marks Spencer - the mall includes an aquarium, ice rink, Sega theme park and cinemas.

To write off the Dubai Mall as simply a shopping destination would be a huge mistake. This entertainment complex -- one of the largest in the world -- is more like a small city, housing some 1,200 retailers, 200 food and beverage outlets and a whole lineup of entertainment options. Even when summer temperatures scorch outside, visitors to the Dubai Mall can lace up their skates and glide across an Olympic-sized ice rink. The Dubai Aquarium Underwater Zoo, located on the ground floor, is the world's largest suspended aquarium with 2.6 million gallons 10 million liters of tank space. The entertainment complex also houses a 22-screen movie theater, SEGA Republic indoor theme park and KidZania edutainment center. That's not to say the shopping isn't a draw. Nearly every major fashion brand out there is represented in Dubai Mall, including five major department stores and brands like Burberry, Diesel, HM, Juicy Couture and Forever 21.

The Dubai Fountain is the world's largest choreographed fountain system. It is set on the 30-acre manmade Burj Khalifa Lake, at the center of the Downtown Dubai development in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It was designed by WET Design, the California-based company responsible for the fountains at the Bellagio Hotel Lake in Las Vegas. Illuminated by 6,600 lights and 50 colored projectors, it is 275 m (902 ft) long and shoots water up to 500 ft (152.4 m) (equal to two football fields) into the air accompanied by a range of classical to contemporary Arabic and world music. It was built at a cost of AED 800 million (USD $218 million). The name of the fountain was chosen after a contest organized by the developer Emaar Properties, the result of which was announced on 26 October 2008. Testing of the fountain began in February 2009, and the fountain was officially inaugurated on 8 May 2009 along with the official opening ceremony of The Dubai Mall.

Dubai is not a place for small scale structures, and the Dubai Aquarium is no exception. With one of the world's largest acrylic panel viewing platforms, as well as the world's largest collection of sand sharks, its largest tank allows for clear visibility of over 33,000 marine animals. The main tank measures 51 meters long and 20 meters deep, bringing the marvel of the ocean to land. At 10 million liters of water in total, it is the largest suspended aquarium in the world. Visitors can be surrounded by sea life in a massive underwater tunnel, a 270 degree view leading to the underwater zoo. The underwater zoo features several marine habitats, with impressive species such as piranhas, crocodiles, otters, and archerfish. The aquarium also offers a number of immersive experiences from scuba and cage diving to glass bottom boat rides and shark encounters.

The Waterfall, a 24-metre tall water feature situated next to The Grove, a key component of the retail centre. Adorned with fibreglass sculptures of divers, and traversing all four levels of the indoor shopping precinct, The Waterfall is surrounded by coffee shops, encouraging shoppers to relax and enjoy views of Burj Dubai, the Dubai Fountain on the 30-acre Burj Dubai Lake and The Address, Downtown Burj Dubai. The Waterfall comprises two cylindrical structures, 30 metres in diameter and 24 metres high, with an overhead reservoir feeding the recycled water. Well-lit in the night and designed to reflect sunlight by day, mall management hope it will act as a complement to the Dubai Fountain, currently under construction on Burj Dubai Lake.
