Set at 828 metres, the Burj Khalifa already has plenty of world records to its name. This year, as we ring in 2023 – the iconic tower will dazzle the Emirati sky with intense colours & lights, all while attempting two records:

  1. A state-of-the-art laser show that will see light beams travel the “longest distance ever recorded”
