If you consider yourself to be a social media king or queen, you must make your way over to these gorgeous places in the city that’ll not only help up your selfie game, but will also get you the likes and follows you deserve. So, here’s where you need to be in Dubai.

La Mer

A haven for creatives – this open-air venue by the beach will remind you of sunny days spent in Miami or LA. With some of the most incredible street art you’ll find in the city, you’ll be more than tempted to pose alongside the artsy murals dotted across the place.


Easily one of the most snapped places in Dubai, you’d be hard pressed to find another venue with such an amazing selection of cafés and restaurants while having some kickass street art on display. Don’t worry about the weather, there’s lots to do indoors here as well.

Al Fahidi Historical District

Discovering the old-world charm of Bastakiya will provide you plenty of photo opportunities especially as you navigate your way through some of the traditional structures and houses. Known to host a variety of events including one dedicated to the arts, make sure you pay visit to the cute little café called Arabian Tea House.

Dubai Creek

Just a stone's throw away from Bastakiya is where you’ll find the stunning Dubai Creek. With its ‘Arabian Nights’ vibe, you’ll find bits and pieces of old Dubai in this part of town. From pearl divers to fishers and traders, the allure of the creek is such that even Dolce & Gabbana did a photo shoot at one of the souks there!

Burj Khalifa

This, of course, remains an all-time favorite with both tourists and residents alike. Besides being the tallest building in the world, some cool art installations in and around the tower have made it even more attractive as a ‘selfie spot’ for the young and trendy in the city.

Madinat Jumeirah

Maybe it’s the winding waterways or the gorgeous architecture, whatever it is, Madinat Jumeirah continues to pull in the crowds even today. As probably one of the most luxurious spots in the city, prepare to be spellbound as you take in the modern take on Old Arabia.

Miracle Garden

Trust us, if there’s a place in Dubai where you can get the most beautiful pics for social media, it has to be this one. With more than 100 million flowers in full bloom, walk into your favorite fairytale as you snap away amongst the pretty artistic creations all over the place.
