15 Best Instagram spots in Dubai

Dubai Miracle Garden

Al Barsha South 3 

Dubai Miracle Garden is the must-see attraction for any instagrammer.

This garden, that houses hundreds of millions of flowers, it’s open to the public from October to April.

If you think that a garden like this in the middle of the desert is some type of craziness, you’re absolutely right. But it’s also true that they use a very efficient irrigation system with treated wastewater that produces zero waste.

Tickets cost around 12€.

Burj Khalifa

1 Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Blvd

The tallest building in the world needs no introduction. It’s visible from miles away, but nothing can beat the view from the top.

Burj Al Arab from Jumeirah beach

Jumeirah Beach

Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world, but Dubai is no short on world records.

Burj Al Arab is the only 7* hotel in the world – you can even order your meals on 24 carat gold iPads. Unnecessary? Yeah, but still quite funny and shocking!

My recommendation is going for sunset to Jumeirah beach, one of my favorite spots in Dubai.

JBR

Jumeirah Beach Residence

Jumeirah Beach has a unique view to Burj Al Arab, but on the other side of the city, JBR has an amazing view to the ferris wheel.

This are is pretty lively and has a very nice atmosphere, and it’s another top pick for sunset in Dubai.

Arabian Tea House

Al Fahidi Street, Bur Dubai, Bastakiya Opposite Musalla Post Office

Another insta famous spot in Dubai is Arabian Tea House, a lovely restaurant that gets free advertisement on instagram thanks to its decor.

They attract thousands of tourists thanks to this setting they placed in one of its facades. Food is great, too! Highly recommended to book in advanced, otherwise you’ll have to wait.

Shangri La

Sheikh Zayed Rd Near Financial Metro Station

Shangri La Dubai has one of the most amazing views to Burj Khalifa. It feels like you’re in the clouds!

You need to stay there to access this rooftop. Check here rates and availability.

Atlantis, the Palm

Crescent Rd

Atlantis The Palm is a luxury resort, themed on the myth of Atlantis and featuring an impressive aquarium.

Although the aquarium is very photogenic, I want to remind you that those fishies would be better in the open sea. So my advice is to take a picture in front of the beautiful facade, if you want, and avoid visiting the aquarium – this is just my opinion and of course you can take it or leave it, but I hope you’ll think twice before you decide to go to this type of places.

Dubai Desert

No trip to Dubai is complete without a day trip to the desert. Fancy some dune bashing?

Emirates Road

I’m sure you’ve seen this place all over the media and you’ve been fascinated by it.

It’s located near the Old Emirates road. Bring your drone for epic shots!

Souk Madinat Jumeirah

Al Sufouh Rd

Madinat Jumeirah resort looks like an oasis in the middle of the desert. Think of canals and leafy palm trees!

Add a boat trip to Madinat Jumeirah for instagram photos but also because it’s one of the most amazing things you can do there.

Dubai Garden Glow

Zabeel Park, Gate No- 6 & 7 Area – B 

The glowing version of Dubai Miracle Garden is quite spectacular and accessible all year round!

Tickets cost around 12€.

Al Seef

Al Seef – Dubai Creek Building, Near Al Saif – Al Fahidi Building – Khalid Bin Al Waleed Rd

You will feel like if you had stepped back in time. This is the oldest and most authentic side of Dubai.

Don’t forget to explore the promenade on the creek!

The Frame

Al Kifaf, Zabeel Park Jogging Track

The newest attraction in Dubai is The Frame, and it literally frames perfectly Dubai through it’s windows.

If you’re afraid of heights, don’t go there.

Burj Park by EMAAR

Burj Khalifa Park

Burj Park nearby Burj Khalifa has some pretty spots for pictures. Search for the dandelions, the wings, and make sure Burj Khalifa fits in the picture!

Iranian Mosque

Ali Bin Abi Taleb Street

You will think you’ve entered a Persian destination once you see this mosque in person. Isn’t it beautiful?
