What not to miss while attending an annual conference in Dusit Thani Hotel?
To take photos of Burj Khalifa. From the hotel, it has a nice view of the tallest tower.
I was planning to visit the observation deck (124th of the at least 160 floors) after its inauguration in January of this year. But as I was trying to shoo my fear of heights, as it was an exciting but a little chickening experience for me when I visited the Macau Tower observation deck (on the 58th floor), not too long, it was temporarily closed for maintenance and upgrade. Sigh. Next time, I will not pay much attention to my phobia anymore. It’s just that we sometimes tend to take for granted those spots that are very accessible to us. While most of the tourists actually flew miles away for these.
Did you know that the architecture of this over 800 meters tower (base of three legs) was in a way inspired by the regional desert flower, Hymenocallis?
Since the observation deck is still closed, we would probably pay a visit to the lower levels. The (57) elevators as reported can travel at 10 meters per second. We will see if that’s true. 🙂
