Whether we like or not, Instagram has greatly influenced the trend in traveling for the past couple of years. I have met a lot of tourists who are honest enough to admit that it is the primarily the photos they’ll be taking while traveling that entices them to travel more. And I also personally believe that what draws people into your travels are your photos. From towering skyscrapers to impossibly beautiful beaches and high-concept lifestyle destinations, DBX is unparalled. Here’s our personal favorite Instagram-worthy spots to visit when in Dubai:

Where the wild things are. <3


1. Dubai Desert

Dubai isn’t all high rise buildings and fancy hotels, be sure to head out to the desert too! Nothing speaks more Dubai than this! Hahaha! It just screams, “unlimited photo ops with the sand dunes, camels, Arabian tents, falcons and Arabian food!” This is easily the best IG spot to visit when in Dubai.

2. Burj Khalifa

There is no other architecture in Dubai that stunned me more than Burj Khalifa did! How could it be anything else when this is the world’s tallest building? It could be a bit of a struggle to frame this staggering building because of its height so make sure to find the best location to shoot.

3. Burj Khalifa- At The Top

As pretty as the Burj is, being inside of it, either on level 124+125 or level 148 (there are different tickets for those levels), makes the picture even more unreal. Prepare your jaws as you’re in for a jaw-dropping experience of the 360-degrees panoramic view of Dubai’s massive landscape.

4. Al Bastakiya

Start your trip with a chill visit to this laidback side of Dubai. Al Bastakiya is part of the Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood – a place that dates back to the 1900s. The historic architecture, courtyards and rustic alleyways are a unique background for your outfit shot. Hello OOTD!


5. Suok Madinat Jumeirah

A modern feel to Arabian architecture, Souk Madinat Jumeirah gives you an range of things to do. It boasts an Arabian Souq feel with a contemporary twist. From fancy restaurants to traditional shops, there won’t be shortage of things to do. Also, there is a super scenic abra ride that would be on point for your Instagram-gaming!


6. Souk Spice

There is so much gold to see, so many spices that are beautifully presented, and loads of colorful Arabian clothes that you need to have your camera ready when visiting.


7. Dubai Mall

The lovely cafes alone are gorgeous elements that are constantly changing, adding more beauty to this place. This is also where huge aquariums and the Dubai Waterfall can be found. And FYI, Instagram reveals that DUBAI MALL is the most tagged location in DBX with an insane number of 2.7 million tags! And if you’re a shopaholic, then splurge all you want here!

8. Dubai Waterfall and Aquarium

These are the two main attractions inside the Dubai Mall. DBX architecture and design are just top-notch! Again, this IG-worthy is for FREE!

9. The Frame

Taking a photo of its full size is no easy task, but you can also take beautiful shots from above. The interior design is beautiful and makes for some great pictures, too. The Frame showcases the two faces of Dubai. Depending on where you stand, one side shows the old city and the other side shows how rapidly this desert country has modernized in a short period of time! Amaaaazingggg!

10. Dubai Fountain

Located next to Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall, it is easy to locate. Enjoy the symphony of lights, sounds and the fountain. Definitely one of the best free shows in the emirate.


11. Level 43 Sky Lounge

If you’re a huge fan of skylines and cityscapes, this is one of the best spots to go. And what’s even better is that the entrance is FREE! They have a bar and café where you can view that best of Dubai from 155m above.

12. Dubai Creek

If you want to see the dressed-down but equally interesting side of the emirate, then you shouldn’t miss Dubai Creek. This also a great spot to ride the abra at a cheaper cost!

13. The Palace Downtown

This 5-star hotel showcases one of the scenic walkway or alley. How could it not be when the Burj Khalifa peeks through at the background? I loved its intricately carved woodwork!

14. The Atlantis

The Atlantis is the most famous hotel in the emirate- after the Burj Al Arab. It is gorgeous both inside and out. Head inside to admire the aquarium, and get a photo with the rays and the sharks, or put down your phone and visit Aqua Adventure for a day of fun!

15. Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

Though this is not part of Dubai, the world’s grandest mosque can easily be accessed for a day tour. Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is actually located in Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates.While this a hot-spot for Instagrammers, please do remember that place is sacred. Be respectful with their practices and tranditions while you explore this massive mosque with one of the finest details in architecture I have seen in my life.
