For those afraid of heights, even the pictures are liable to have you breaking out in a sweat.
It’s hardly surprising, though – from the tallest building in the world the views are, to say the least, dizzying.
These photographs were taken from the 101st floor of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
Shrouded by clouds above the lights of the metropolis, it has more than 160 storeys and reaches 828m (2,716ft) into the sky.
It may be a vertiginous climb to the observation deck but photographer Daniel Cheong believes the views are worth it.
‘A city always looks more beautiful from a high vantage point,’ he said.
The Burj Khalifa, the centrepiece of Dubai’s recent development, has broken the record for the tallest structure, previously held in the US by the KVLY-TV mast in Blanchard, North Dakota, and the tallest free-standing structure, previously the boast of the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada.
However, the Burj may soon be second best. Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Properties which built it, said his company ‘may try to build something a little taller’ in the near future.
