Burj Khalifa #10yearchallenge glow up
By this point, you’ve probably seen the #10yearchallenge all over the internet and your social media; from friends posting hilarious throwbacks to celebrities joining in on the hype, it seems like everyone’s jumped on board with the first trend of 2019 (unless the egg counts?).

As you’ve guessed from the featured image and title of this article, a photo was posted to the¬†@BurjKhalifa¬†Instagram with a side by side comparison of the Burj Khalifa and surrounding views of Dubai in 2009 vs 2019. 10 years later and its safe to say that there’s been a massive glow up, right? The true Dubai oldies out there know that Downtown Dubai is one of the areas in the city that’s transformed at a crazy rate since it was first built and it looks like it won’t stop anytime soon!

The caption thanked everyone who’s been part of the journey to create the gorgeous picture that we see today in 2019. Since construction finished back in 2008, the Burj has consistently secured its spot as the tallest building in the world, so if you haven’t taken the crazy elevator ride to the highest observation point yet then make sure you add it to this year’s bucket list! We’re excited to see what changes the next 10 years bring to Dubai… any predictions?
