These truly are breathtaking…

Dubai is home to some pretty stunning structures, both old and new. And whether you’re seeing them at sunrise or sunset, from the sky or with your feet firmly on the ground, it’s hard to resist getting a snap for your Instagram.

So if you’ve got tourists in town, or you’re just looking to revisit some classic photo-taking spots, we’ve got some inspiration for you.

Here are eight pictures we love of Dubai landmarks.

JBR has always been home to some of the city’s best sunsets, and watching the sun drop behind the Ain Dubai is one of the best views on the Marina beachfront. We can’t wait to take a spin on the soon-to-open attraction next year.

Atlantis The Palm

One of several iconic hotels in the city, few couldn’t recognise the silhouette of Atlantis The Palm

Burj Al Arab

It’s famed for providing the most premium service standards in the world, rated as the only seven star hotel on the planet, but we’d call the Burj Al Arab a pretty premium backdrop for our next insta pic…

Burj Khalifa

The world’s tallest tower looks pretty epic both by day and by night. But we especially loved it all lit up for the laser show, which was displayed from New Year’s Eve until the end of March.

Dubai Canal

Running up from Jumeirah right through Al Habtoor City and Business Bay, the way this shot frames the Burj Khalifa and Downtown skyline under the canal bridge is beautiful…

Dubai Frame

You might be able to get some impressive snaps from inside Dubai Frame, but you can also get some pretty impressive ones of Dubai Frame too.

Built in the 1970s, Jumeirah Mosque is one of the few Mosques that permits public entry. It’s one of Dubai’s largest religious buildings, and is well w orth a visit.

Palm Jumeirah

Nothing quite proves how amazing Dubai is like an aerial shot of The Palm Jumeirah, especially if you’re taking it as you’re jumping out of a plane.
