Measuring in at a startling 2,722 feet, Dubai's Burj Khalifa is the current record holder for the world's tallest man-made structure. The 163-floor mixed-use building was designed by Adrian Smith, an American architect also famous for designing Chicago's Trump International Hotel and Tower. Burj Khalifa is designed in the neo-futurism style, while its tiered, spiraling pattern reflects more ancient examples of Islamic architecture found throughout the Middle East. The building has 24,348 windows which require a team of 36 workers and nearly four months to clean. Ryugyong Hotel, North Korea

Weekend Getaways from Dubai
133 Kms from Dubai
We had to get ready by 9 in morning. After a hot water bath, I was all set for the breakfast till 8:30 a.m. The sun strokes were high as usual. The buffet had its cuisine ready for the morning breakfast. Our cab arrived by 9 and we were all set to leave. We had a city tour to Abu Dhabi. The view of the buildings standing tall, blocked the sun rays to fall on roads. United Arab Emirates (UAE) has 7 states. An amazing thing about travelling through all 7 states is that you get to discover difference in the color of roads in all 7 states. When we reached Abu Dhabi, the color of the road was slightly green. We saw all the palaces where the prince of the UAE and his wives resided, famous hotels, dockyards and harbors. The import/export plays a very important role in a deserted place. We also saw the World Trade Center (where the Fast and Furious series was shot).
