Let me take you to a journey across Dubai’s most beautiful sights to see and explore. So many of you were asking me what to do in Dubai when you only have a few days or a one day stopover. So let me introduce you to my Top 5 Instagrammable Places in Dubai from my last trip.
Place #1. Burj Khalifa and The Palace Downtown Dubai
While there is for sure a lot around the Dubai Mall, two of my favorite spots you can find here. One is an iconic picture of the Burj Khalifa in the background. I find it to be the most beautiful when you sit on the railing near the Dubai Fountain. This way, if you get down really low and bring the right camera lens you can capture the entire building Another great spot nearby, are the beautiful palm trees in the Palace Downtown. Ok I must say, when I was there they were just cut, but usually they look better … Nevertheless, it’s a cute street with a beautiful background worth capturing
Directly in front of the Dubai Mall you can enjoy the view of the tallest building on earth the Burj Khalifa.

Place #2. Hotel Shangri-La Dubai at Sunset
If you would like to see a stunning sunset and maybe have a relaxing late-night drink, while taking a photo, I have the spot for you … at the Hotel Shangri-La Dubai. From one of the top most floors you have a gorgeous view of the Dubai skyline. Like I said, it is the best to do at night when the Burj Khalifa lights up after sunset.
Place #3. Breakfast at Four Seasons Hotel Dubai Downtown
If you like to have a really good breakfast with a gorgeous view of the downtown Dubai skyline, the Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre is the right place to be. The food there is just amazing, and the pool makes for a very impressive picture. Even though I am not sure if I would go back for the picture, I would definitely come back for the food Not to get me wrong, the view is really cool, but I loved the food soooo much.

Place #4. Hotel Atlantis the Palm
Even though I am not the biggest fan of the Atlantis Hotel (to cut a long story short: To crowded and not very personal) it does have a very impressive indoor aquarium. But keep in mind, if you want to get a picture at this spot, get up early … like I said it is very crowded. Note: I had so many amazing pictures at this spot, but when we were on the plane back home I accidentally deleted all of them This is the only Picture that survived.

Place #5. Enjoy the sunset at the Burj al Arab
Finally, the iconic Burj al Arab. Just take as stroll at the beach, ideally at sundown, and enjoy the lovely beach and the sunset. Keep in mind the South side of the Hotel is covered with private beaches where you will not have access to the “picture spots” if you do not sleep in one of the nearby hotels. So, the best way to get to the beach cheaply, is by using a beach access in the north.
