Gold vending machines soar high at Burj Khalifa’s observation deck

Gold vending ATMs are a thing of the past in the USA. After gracing South Florida and more recently making its presence felt at Las Vegas, its time for the Gold crazy Dubai to get its share of the pie too. Not quite a first in the Middle East ( Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace already got there first), the Gold To Go machines marked its presence inside the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. The completely operational ATMs have been installed at the observation deck of the tower and the souvenir shop at the Dubai Mall. The ATM can dispense four varieties of gold bars, in sizes starting at 2.5 grams to one ounce (28.3g). Around 300 of these machines are all set to sprout all across UAE with spots like Ski Dubai and Atlantis-The Palm on the radar.
