Downtown Dubai

Home to the world's tallest building and other record sights

Save to my Account

The vast new Downtown Dubai development is one of modern Dubai’s most spectacular developments, built at a reputed cost of $20 billion and centred on the cloud-capped Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.

Ringing the Burj Khalifa are a string of other record-breaking attractions, including the vast new Dubai Mall, the extravagant Dubai Fountain and the chintzy “Old Town” development, designed in quasi-Arabian style and home to the low-key Souk al Bahar and the opulent The Palace hotel.
