There are many spots to shoot pictures in Dubai because of the magnificent skyscrapers, lovely parks, amazing floral installations, never-ending freeways, and breathtaking views.

You’ve come to the right place if you’re seeking for Dubai’s top Instagrammable locations! Dubai is a photographer’s paradise thanks to its futuristic cityscapes, eye-catching locations, and interesting backgrounds.

'At The Top' of the Burj Khalifa.

Burj Khalifa at the top

Since its debut in 2010, the Burj Khalifa, which stands over 829 meters tall, has held the title of the tallest skyscraper in the world.

It is a definite must-see on your trip to Dubai because it is so spectacular and its enormity is difficult to comprehend.

For a 149 dirham (£30) fee, visit the observation decks “At The Top” on levels 124 and 125 to take in the view of Dubai below. From this height, the entire city appears so small!

You can ascend to the 148th-floor observatory for an additional 229 dirhams, or over £50.

Madinat Jumeirah

Madinat Jumeirah

An affluent Arabian resort called Madinat Jumeirah has five hotels, a souk, more than fifty restaurants and bars, as well as a private beach. It wouldn’t be incorrect to describe it as a city unto itself. It offers the pinnacle of history and grandeur.

Only the paid-for activities are available in the Madinat Jumeirah grounds, which are open to the public. As Madinat Jumeirah was constructed next to Burj Al Arab, there are plenty of other places to take pictures. 

There are many different vantage points, and the majority of them are suitable for taking pictures. While you’re here, make sure to visit the Souk Madinet Jumeirah, an excellent Arabian Bazaar.

City Tour

Dubai’s trendy neighborhood City Walk presents an intriguing backdrop with its several-block-long pedestrian boulevards in the European fashion. Its vibrant architecture and art installations will give your fashion photo session that extra something. 

To freshen up your attire, peruse the many local and foreign boutiques. To find out what’s hot, peruse the racks at Human & Beings and Le Cube Boutique, or visit Italian House to peruse the most recent in high fashion. 

Then, savor delectable Azerbaijani food at Baku Café or international fare with Indian influences at Farzi Café.

Observatory Sky Views

The Sky Views Observatory is one of Dubai’s best Instagrammable locations right now because it’s the new kid on the block.

You may shoot pictures with the Burj Khalifa in the background from this observation deck, which is located across the street from the building. The public observatory is located 219.5 meters (720.1 ft) above Dubai’s downtown parks and shopping centers.

You can go to the deck by yourself or muster the nerve to take on the Edge Walk, which is a hands-free walk on a ledge outside the tower.

Try the glass Sky Slide alternatively. You are launched violently from the 53rd story to the 52nd floor by this tube, which winds its way around the tower’s outside.

Dubai's Shangri-La Terrace

One of the greatest places to shoot the Dubai skyline is at Shangri-La Dubai, one of the best hotels in Dubai with an amazing panorama of the Burj Khalifa.

You can’t top this view from the hotel’s open-air terrace on the 42nd level, which views out over the Burj Khalifa and the Downtown Dubai cityscape.

Sadly, there are only two ways to get onto this magnificent patio: either you must be a hotel guest or you can reserve the terrace for a private event.

With the “Just You and the View at 42” dinner package, you may enjoy a private dining experience on the terrace.

Ocean Beach

Ocean Beach

One of my all-time favorite destinations in Dubai is La Mer. There are so many cute tiny places to explore here, and it is hip and unpretentious.

When you stroll around the outdoor shopping center, you can have the impression that you’ve traveled back in time or that Spitalfields in trendy East London is where you are. Take in the ambiance and the wall murals before going to the beach.

Go to the right on the beach to find these beach cottages. You won’t likely notice the wall paintings if you are strolling along the beach because they are on the sides of eateries.

To find the murals, you must go behind and between the eateries.

Burj Al Arab

The Burj Al Arab is a destination for all things ultra-luxury and is situated on the man-made island about 280 meters off Jumeirah beach. 

It is a sleek, five-star hotel that is known for its sailing design and is one of the tallest in the world. Only guests are permitted admission, however, if you make a reservation to eat there, you will be the only one to see how the restaurant appears inside.

However, you can take a 2-hour private yacht tour that passes the Burj Al Arab and Palm Jumeirah to get up close to it. Who wants to experience this luxury right now?

Dubai Miracle Garden

Miracle Garden

The Dubai Miracle Garden has to be among the most picturesque and idyllic locations in the city. The Miracle Garden is one example of Dubai’s penchant for making everything appear much larger than it actually is.

With more than 250 million plants and more than 50 million blossoms, it is the biggest natural flower garden. This location is a true floral fantasy land with lots of photo chances. With locations like this, taking amazing images is not difficult in Dubai.

If you happen to visit Dubai between mid-November and mid-May, you shouldn’t miss one of the most stunning and Instagrammable locations there. Visits to Miracle Garden and Global Village might be a wonderful alternative.

Wings of Mexico

In Dubai, there is no shortage of places to take pictures, and Downtown appears to be the center of most of them. The Wings of Mexico is one of the Instagrammable locations in Dubai that has received a lot of attention recently.

Mexican artist Jorge Marin, a specialist in Mexican figurative art, created the sculpture. The sculpture is a metaphor for our aspirations to soar.

Several places, including Dubai, Los Angeles, Singapore, Nagoya, Madrid, and Berlin, have it on permanent exhibit. It is, without a doubt, one of the Dubai attractions that is most frequently featured.

Dubai Creek Harbour

The most recent construction in the city is Dubai Creek Harbour, which is located near to the Ras Al Khor natural reserve, known for its flamingo population. Ras Al Khor is not part of Dubai Creek, thus don’t mistake the two locations.

It is a wonderful site to spend the evening and provides breathtaking views of the Dubai Skyline above the Dubai Creek water. Watch a sunset here to see why it’s one of Dubai’s top locations for photography. Here, you can spend time in the open cafes and shops.

The Pointe is a waterfront development that serves as a gathering place for posh stores, eateries, and cafes with stunning views of Atlantis on the opposite side of the body of water.

It is a really laid-back location with a little beach and several brightly colored bean bags scattered over the sand.

The Atlantis backdrop and the vibrant bean bags on the beach are what make Pointe one of the coolest Instagrammable places in Dubai. Don’t forget to pack a bean bag and a drink since the sunsets at Pointe can be very breathtaking.
