Burj Khalifa, world's tallest building, to open for sunrise

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — It will soon be possible to watch the sun rise over Dubai from the world's tallest building.

The Burj Khalifa's management announced it is selling tickets on the United Arab Emirates' weekend of Friday and Saturday for sunrise viewings.

The building's management says the sessions start from 5:30 a.m. with viewings every 30 minutes on the 124th floor until 8 a.m. Weekend viewings previously started from 8:30 a.m.

Tickets are 125 dirhams ($34) for adults and 95 dirhams ($26) for children ages 4 to 12. Children under 4 can enter for free.

The spired 2,717-foot (828-meter) tall Burj Khalifa opened to the public in January 2010.
