Burj Khalifa, Dubai


Stand in the shadows of this architectural giant and crane your neck to see the top, 828 metres in the sky. The Burj Khalifa is Dubai’s most iconic destination, dominating the city’s skyline. Head inside and zoom up 148 floors via a high-speed elevator at 10 metres per second to the observation deck of the world’s tallest building. You’ll find floor-to-ceiling windows, providing an unobstructed 360-degree view of the city and beyond.

Istanbul Sapphire, Istanbul


Enjoy a new perspective of Istanbul when you head to the top of the tallest skyscraper in the country. The gleaming Istanbul Sapphire adds a modern element to the ancient Turkish city’s historic skyline, boasting spectacular panoramic views from its observation deck 53 floors above ground.

Kingdom Centre, Riyadh


Conquer Saudi Arabia’s tallest skyscraper when you venture to the top of the Kingdom Centre. This 99-storey building punctuates Riyadh’s skyline at 302m - it’s not for the faint hearted. Hop aboard a high-speed elevator and journey to the sky bridge - 300 tonnes of steel and glass that connects the building’s two towers - on the 99th floor. The observation deck offers sweeping vistas across the capital city – just don’t forget your camera.

MahaNakhon, Bangkok


Leave the hustle and bustle of Bangkok’s busy streets behind and be the first to venture to the top of MahaNakhon. Located in the heart of the city, the 314m skyscraper, known as Pixel Tower, is the tallest in Thailand. Its soon-to-open rooftop observation deck marks the highest point in Bangkok – from here, enjoy 360 degree panoramic views of the city. If you dare to brave MahaNakhon’s skytray, a glass balcony jutting out into the sky, you’ll be rewarded with that coveted floating on air feeling.
