3 places that offer great photo opportunities in Dubai
Updated on 10 August 2017

A few years ago, a camera was an integral part of every tourist’s suitcase. Today, it’s their mobile phone that serves the same purpose. Looking for a place to take great pictures while you’re in Dubai? Check out these three spots:

1.    Burj Nahar

On Omar bin Al Khattab road in Deira, you will find Burj Nahar, one of three inland-facing watchtowers that were used to guard Dubai from attack by hostile desert tribes. Built in 1870 and set amongst beautiful gardens, Burj Nahar is a fine example of an old watchtower and is a wonderful photo opportunity.

2.    Burj Al Arab

Since its opening in December 1999, the Burj Al Arab has been one of the most photographed structures in the world. Sometimes referred to as "the world's most luxurious hotel", the Burj Al Arab was designed to resemble the billowing sail of a ship, and standing 321m high, it makes an impressive addition to the Dubai skyline. It is illuminated at night making it beautiful to see from a distance and perfect for pictures.

3.    The Dubai Fountain

The Dubai Fountain is a captivating water, music and light spectacle in Downtown Dubai. One of Dubai’s most compelling tourist attractions, it delights thousands of visitors for free every day. At over 900ft in length – equivalent to over two football pitches - it is situated on the 30-acre Burj Lake and performs to a range of different songs from classical to contemporary, Arabic and world music. With The Dubai Fountain Lake Ride you can set sail on the ultimate ride with front row seats to the best show in town for Dhs 65 per person. Shows are daily at 1pm and 1.30pm and 1.30pm and 2pm on Fridays. Evening shows take place at 30-minute intervals from 6pm onwards.
