Tweet-Up Review:
At The Top, Burj Khalifa

We've been brought up in Dubai yet this city never ceases to pleasantly surprise us! This past Friday, we were invited to the iconic Burj Khalifa to experience the sun rising from almost the highest observation deck in the world (I say almost because we were on the 124th-125th floor, not the 148th which is currently the highest). #TweetUpAtTheTop as the event was titled brought together a group of about 30 bloggers, photographers and other such for a meet up with a twist!

We reported to the "At The Top Burj Khalifa" entrance at the Dubai Mall at 5:30 am, the earliest we have ever been to the mall and it was bizarre to see the usually swarming mall deserted; an experience of its own! Armed with our media passes, DSLR and Go Pro Heros, we made our way to the 124th floor where we were treated to a panorama that we have viewed previously but appears distinctive and even more beautiful than before every time we see it.

First light broke at about 6:35 am and it was a sight to behold as Dubai woke up to a beautiful Friday morning. After treating our sense of sight to the beauty of a Dubai sunrise, we headed downstairs for some "light" breakfast of croissants, cakes, teas and juices.

All in all I'd say we've never felt happier to wake up at the crack of dawn!
