Top Insta-Worthy Hot Spots to Visit in Dubai

Burj Khalifa

One of the most popular sites in Dubai that everyone is familiar with is the Burj Khalifa. This 830 meter height tallest building will undoubtedly amaze you. Your Dubai tour is incomplete without paying a visit here. The topmost portion of Burj Khalifa not only has an incredible view but is one of the best places for clicking pictures. To begin with, you can click on some photos with the Dubai skyline in the background. There is also an outstanding glass viewing platform on floor number 124. Don’t forget about the painted wings within the structure, which are a well-known photo op.

Burj Al Arab

There is beauty in every corner of Dubai, and to add stars to the list, the next place is Burj al Arab. This true icon of Dubai is one of the most sumptuous hotels in the world. This is also one of the top 10 tallest hotels in Dubai. Although visiting Burj Al Arab is expensive, the coolest aspect about this location is that you can capture great photos from the outside as well.

The best spot to click pictures with this hotel is the Jumeirah Public Beach. Also, it is better to visit here during the sunset or at night. This way, you get to enjoy the beautiful sunset on the beach and click some amazing pictures there. In the night with the lights of Burj al Arab, nothing can stop you from getting an insta-perfect click.

Dubai Creek Harbour

A fairly new neighborhood situated on the shores of Dubai Creek is another pride of the city that not everybody is aware of. The Dubai Creek Harbour is a quiet place to hang out and get some ‘postable’ pictures with less interruption. There are lots of playgrounds located in that area rendering an awestruck view of the city. You can click photographs over the Dubai skyline for better background and correct angles. It is best to choose the golden hours of the day to get the best shot here.

Atlantis, The Palm

The Palm Jumeirah is another legendary hotel located on the artificial palm-tree-shaped archipelago in Dubai. However, you are not allowed to get inside unless you are a guest of the hotel. But you can visit the shisha bar inside the hotel. The best spot to capture good pictures here is the indoor aquarium, known as the Lost Chambers Aquarium. One part of the aquarium is free for visitors. It is a massive aquarium with various fishes and a magical view. You must visit there in the morning to avoid the crowd. It gets difficult to shoot pictures during the afternoon.

Dubai Miracle Garden

The Dubai Miracle Garden is another fairy-tale-like experience you can have in the city. This miracle garden is miraculously beautiful with gorgeous flowers, colorful umbrellas, giant sculptures, and heart-shaped tunnels. Your pictures are bound to become attractive with so many colors around. However, the garden is only open between mid-November to mid-May. There are picture-perfect sites all around, so you may go at any time of day.

Wings of Mexico Statue

Another renowned landmark to click pictures for your social media is the Wings of Mexico Statue. You could even spot this place in several movies. The wings are supremely photogenic.

Burj Park by Emaar

If you desire to shoot an Instagram picture with the entire Burj Khalifa in the background, then Burj Park by Emaar is a must-visit. This is one of the most beautiful parks in Dubai, with amazing views of the Burj Khalifa and the nearby skyscrapers. However, the only drawback of this place is that you can’t use your camera here. You are only allowed to shoot with your phone. Hence, you got to put a lot of effort into getting the correct angle to cover the entire scenery. You are welcome to visit whenever you like. It is rarely crowded, so don’t be concerned about your photo. You can take an Instagram-worthy shot at any moment.

Palace Downtown

Being one of the most beautiful hotels in Dubai, Palace Downtown offers a mesmerizing view. The best thing about this hotel is you can visit the pool area without being a hotel guest. The pool is located outside the hotel, from where you can get a clear view of the Burj Khalifa. Hence, you get to kill two birds with one stone. You can use only the pool area and the hotel gate or add the Burj Khalifa as an additional star to your picture’s background.

Dubai Mall

Your Instagram’ Dubai diaries’ is incomplete without the presence of the world’s largest mall. The most famous spot of this mall is the Waterfall Wall. The waterfall is around 24-meter tall. It is superbly ornamented with fiberglass sculptures of divers. It adds a hint of creativity to your photo background. The best part about this place is the visit is entirely free. You can use any camera to shoot your picture. However, the only thing you need to take care of is the crowd. Undoubtedly you wouldn’t want someone else’s intervention between you and the Wall full of divers. Hence, it’s better to visit there in the morning before the rush hours.

Dubai Steel Heart

Right after you come out of the Dubai Mall stands the Steel Heart. It is another spectacular location to click a great shot with the guest appearance of the Burj Khalifa behind. Right beside the heart, there is a cute little corner with treasure chests and carpets. You can use them as your photo props as well. This entire scenery looks nothing less than a fairyland.
