The world’s tallest building, inside out

With the amazing technology Google Street View has to offer we have been able to see and experience amazing places around the world - they have now taken it a step further by allowing users to be able to see the world’s tallest building from every angle, including inside!

Of course the first skyscraper to be mapped on Google Street View would be the tallest in the world. Even from your computer screen, the view is breathtakingly awesome. You can check things out the view from Burj Khalifa's highest occupied floor (the 163rd).

You can also look down on Dubai from the 124th floor observation deck, or peer off an 80th floor window washing unit.

Google even shows you what it's like to ride in one of Burj's 22 mph elevators—the fastest-moving elevators in the world. So while most of us might never get a chance to see the mega-tall building in the flesh, seeing it from Google Street View is the next best thing.
