The Burj Dubai, The World’s Tallest Skyscraper

The Burj Dubai, the world’s tallest skyscraper, towers over the Business Bay area in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on Tuesday, Nov. 24, 2009. Dubai, whose government and state-owned companies borrowed $80 billion to fund an economic boom, raised $5 billion by selling bonds after the credit crisis battered its property and finance industries.
