Visitors to the world’s tallest building can now get an even more elevated view of the surrounding area in Dubai.

Visitors to the 2,717ft Burj Khalifa skyscraper can now pay to ride up to a new observation deck on the 148th floor.

That is 1,821ft above street level, making it the world’s highest observation deck, according to Guinness World Records.

To get there, sightseers have to change lifts on level 125.

Previously tourists could only go to an observation deck on the 124th floor. Nearly 1.9 million visitors did so last year.

The higher views come with steeper prices. Pre-booked tickets for the new attraction cost the equivalent of £68, or £85 for walk-up tickets.
