After devouring the breathtaking 360-degree view of the desert, sea and Dubai metropolis from the highest tower in the world, we checked the souvenir shop which is located on the 124th level (observation deck). Although it has been operating for a few months yet, it boasts nice pieces of keepsakes. Some of the things that caught my attention:
Remember Sandy? Meet her friends from the tallest tower.
Perfume bottles and jewelry boxes.
Lots of bears. I don’t find them representative of UAE culture. The boxes on top contains Arabian dates (fruit).
Just like the scented candles, I don’t see the relevance of this kit to Burj Khalifa. Unless it bears a logo that I impossibly missed. Nonetheless, it looks practical.
I like these jackets. They come as photo album, cd case, and notebook. Available in gray, blue and red.
I think this is not for sale. It says that 96,000 pieces of this Grade 10.9 M24 bolts which weigh 1.06kg each were used in the construction of Burj Khalifa.
The only kind of bags available (so far). The shade of violet is a favorite by the UAE locals.
The Arabic writing over there reads as “At the Top”. Expensive pieces in this area. By the time you scroll to this photo, you probably noticed already and wondered what inspired the logo (symbol) there. Burj Khalifa structure was based on a regional desert flower, hymenocallis (spider lily). According to its main architect, the flower’s harmonious structure is one of the organizing principles of the design.
(That explains the spider lily’s visibility on the walls. Like petals from a stem, Burj Khalifa’s wings extend from its central core.)
