Dubai's Burj Khalifa in Google MapsGoogle Street View is famous, and often under privacy question, for 360 degree panoramic view of many attractive places in the world. At times, the search giant sends its Street View team beyond the streets to capture what may be of even greater value than Times Square in NY. This time, Google camera goes to a new height to cover the world’s tallest skyscraper, Burj Khalifa.

Standing with pride in Dubai, Burj Khalifa fascinates every tourist who may or may not have an opportunity to visit the place in person. Thanks to Google, you can experience what it feels to be inside it. Google released new photos with full panoramic view of some floors. Even crazier, you can see how it would feel to look outside from 80th floor’s maintenance window. The camera crew was brave enough to take the camera out to give you that sight right from your home or wherever you are with your mobile device.

The camera level is a little too high which may give you an usually high view of inside the facility. But something is better than nothing, right? Without having to pay for a visit to the world’s tallest tower, you are given access to see what if looks like (not feels like) to be inside a legendary structure.

It is possible to embed the Burj Khalifa right in this post. But the experience is better in full screen, for which you should click here to experience Dubai’s Burj Khalifa right from where you are!
