2 LIVE THE HIGH LIFE IN DUBAI

The Burj Khalifa is the tallest man-made structure on Earth

Clocking in at 828 metres, it offers dizzying views over the futuristic city from the observation deck (from £23; burjkhalifa.ae). Just below it, the 122nd-foor At.mosphere is the world’s highest restaurant above ground level. Just over a mile away, visitors can also nab their own room with a view by holing up in the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel, the world’s tallest, which offers suites decked out with plush furnishings and spa-like marble bathrooms (from £160; marriott.com).
