The Most Instagrammable Places In Dubai

I'm just going to come right out and say... I absolutely LOVE  Dubai - the city's unbeatable restaurant scene, shopping facilities, beaches, bars and everything in between makes Dubai one of the most fun places in the world to live. Fact. 

It's also pretty darn full of some seriously Insta-Worthy places too!

If you live in Dubai, or you plan on visiting in the near future, here's my guide to some of the most Instagrammable places you can find in the emirate. 

The Most Instagrammable Places In Dubai

City Walk

City Walk is an upscale, urban lifestyle destination that boasts a mix of interesting retail outlets and enticing cafes and restaurants. It's a predominantly outdoor venue that's packed with quirky design features and stunning art work, making it a great place to grab a few Insta shots whilst you scoff an ice cream. 

Madinat Jumeirah

The Madinat Jumeriah is one of my favourite places in Dubai. It's a luxury resort that's designed to look like a traditional Arabian town and hosts luxury hotels, a world-renowned spa and a souk. Its cafe and restaurant lined waterways are a great place to take a traditional abra (water taxi) ride, plus you can also bag yourself a few pictures of the iconic Burj Al Arab in the distance. 

Shimmers Beach Bar and Restaurant 

Speaking of the Burj Al Arab, if you're looking for a place to photograph the iconic Dubai landmark, as well as soak up some sea air, you need to head down to Shimmers in the Madinat Jumeriah Mina A' Salam hotel. They also serve up some pretty great food and drinks too!

The Burj Khalifa

Okay, we couldn't talk about the most Instagrammable places in Dubai without mentioning the Burj Khalifa. Whether you're admiring the 160-storey building from the ground or taking in the views from one of their observation decks, you're guaranteed a great photo-op. Whilst you're there, you can also nip into Dubai Mall - just make sure you're back in time to see the spectacular fountains that run every 30 minutes in the evenings from 6pm-11pm (Check here for full timings)

Jumeirah Beach Residence - JBR

The Walk at JBR is a waterfront shopping and dining destintion. Wander along the boulevard, soak up the sun on the beach or grab a bite to eat at one of JBR's many cafes or food trucks. There's murals dotted along the way and numerous stylish boutiques to pose in front of. 

Dubai Marina

Dubai Marina is a must-visit if you're looking to capture some of the city's impressive architecture. The dramatic skyline provides a great backdrop for photographs. Whether you want to hire a yacht to take in the views, walk around the marina's many restaurants and bars or hit the shops in the adjacent Marina Mall, this is a part of Dubai that isn't to be missed. 

Jolie Cafe

It's back to City Walk to talk about one of the most Instagrammable cafes I've come across in Dubai. Jolie Cafe is a 'floral boutique cafe' that features quaint decor and a stunningly beautiful floral ceiling. The food is delicious and well presented, usually served with fresh blooms. There's a daily afternoon tea that consists of canapes, finger sandwiches, homemade cakes, pastries and scones. Convinced yet?

Dubai Miracle Garden

Every 'Winter' the Dubai Miracle Garden opens its doors with a jaw-dropping garden display. The huge garden features stunning floral displays and statues that make for great Instagram content. This year will be the first time I visit due to the garden being closed when I made the move to Dubai.  Due to the sweltering heat of Summer, the garden is only open during the cooler months - usually around November to April/May. Make sure you check the timings via their website before you visit. 

Have you visited Dubai and been to any of these places? Let me know what your favourite Instagrammable places are in the city.
