Google Street View is a technology featured in Google Maps and Google Earth that provides panoramic views from positions along many streets in the world. It was launched on May 25, 2007, in several cities in the United States, and has since expanded to include cities and rural areas worldwide.
Finally, Dubai has a spot in Google Street View - and it's no less than the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa. The virtual tour includes views from Level 43 pool terrace, At The Top observation deck at the 124th floor and at the ground floor entrance, Unit 73 Building Maintenance Area, Level 152 Lounge, and view of Downtown Dubai. You can view the gallery here.
