Dubai is probably one of the most Instagrammable cities in the world. The architecture is ever changing and the ‘newness’ is constant. It’s such an exciting place and definitely somewhere to up your Instagram game.
First stop has to be the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa, up close it’s so impressive. My favourite time of day to visit is just as the sun sets and the Burj Khalifa gets this almost halo light glow around it.
On the theme of iconic buildings you can’t go to Dubai and not see the Burj Al Arab, the seven star hotel is one of the most beautiful looking buildings I’ve ever seen. The best way to see it and get that shot for Instagram is via an Abra tour at Madinet Jumeirah which is right next door. The Abra tour is also a really gorgeous way to nosy around the stunning resort.
For something a little different head to Alserkal Avenue Dubai’s coolest art hub, home to a variety of pop up gallery spaces, art installations and street food stalls. It’s also home to Mirzam Chocolate and a super cool place for kids where they can make unicorn slime!
Hotels in Dubai are incredibly Instagrammable, the Jumeirah Emirates Towers for the incredible view of the Frame and Fairmont the Palm for just, well, everything!
Little Miss India is one of the best Indian restaurants in Dubai and is absolutely divine. The décor is unlike anything I’ve seen before, from the cheetah statue that welcomes you at the door to the gorgeous chandeliers, it’s simply beautiful.
There are of course hundreds of other beautiful and Instagram worthy spots in Dubai, this is just a snapshot (see what I did there) of some of the places I recently visited.
