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€ and it’s out of the city.
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
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.
Jumeirah Beach Residence
Jumeirah Beach has a unique view of Burj Al Arab, but on the other side of the city, JBR has an amazing view of 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.
Sheikh Zayed Rd Near Financial Metro Station
Shangri La Dubai has one of the most amazing views of Burj Khalifa. It feels like you’re in the clouds!
You need to stay there to access this rooftop.
Atlantis, The Palm
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.
No trip to Dubai is complete without a day trip to the desert.
Fancy some dune bashing? Tours usually include quad bikes, sandboarding, bbq or camel rides!
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 the Dubai Miracle Garden is quite spectacular and accessible all year round!
The tickets cost around 12€.
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!
Al Kifaf, Zabeel Park Jogging Track
The newest attraction in Dubai is The Frame, and it literally frames perfectly Dubai through its 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!
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?
