Burj Khalifa named best attraction in the world for 2015

Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, has been dubbed the world’s best attraction for 2015 by international online ticket sales site Attractiontix.

The UAE icon's restaurants, including At.mosphere, and its observation deck known as “At the Top”, where tourists can travel to the 148th floor of the tower and enjoy a 360 degree view of the city, were drawcards.

“At the Top” was also dubbed one of the world’s most romantic attractions.

Other destinations on the list included France’s Eiffel Tower, and the US’s Empire State Building.

Attractiontix said it determined the winners of its 2015 Worldwide Attractions Awards through thousands of votes from people around the world.

Burj Khalifa is 828 metres tall, consists of 200 plus stories, and has 160 habitable levels - the most of any building in the world.

It also holds the Guinness World Records for the Tallest Building, the tallest man-made structure on land, and the highest restaurant from ground level for its venue, At.mosphere.
