The Emirates are calling! Musement shares five Instagram accounts that perfectly capture the UAE’s intrigue and allure.
There’s probably no country in the world that’s quite as intriguing (or new!) as the Emirates. From towering skyscrapers to breathtaking scenery to indoor waterparks to a gorgeous coastline to more (we could go on for ages!), there is so much to see and do in this fascinating Middle Eastern country. Whether you’ve been and are eager to return, dying to travel there or just plain curious, there’s no better place to get an Emirates visual fix than from Instagram, and here are five Instagram accounts you should follow to do just that.
Son of HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum is the Crown Prince of Dubai. He’s quite a photographer, and his Instagram feed is a testimony to how much he loves his country. His photos showcase Dubai and the other Emirates at their finest through gorgeous city- and landscape shots as well as through personal photos from various outdoor activities like falconry to jet skiing in the Persian Gulf to travel pics from his jet-setting adventures.
A professional photographer, Pixelville spotlights Dubai from some of the most atypical angles, focusing on the city’s stunning architecture and geometrical shapes through mostly wide and aerial shots. She also travels around the world so her feed is likely to conjure up some travel envy, leaving you lusting for your next getaway.
The founder and editor-in-chief of the food publication Kuisines Magazine, Hessa Al Khalifa eats well (very well!) in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the other emirates and around the world. Definitely check out her feed to start planning your meals or are just curious about the UAE’s food/dining culture. Just don’t peek on an empty stomach….you’ve been warned!
Dubai-based Engineer Musab Almessabi is one of the Emirates’ most influential Instagrammers highlighting the beauty and the bounty of his country, from bustling cities to vast deserts to the sprawling seaside and more. He travels a lot, especially around the Middle East, and his lens is a lovely medium for admiring the world.
Yakubanto is a Dubai-based photographer and his cityscapes will make you ooh and aah, and even smile. From hot air balloons soaring over the skyscrapers to bungee jumpers leaping off the Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest structure), to sunrises to sunsets to action stills, you’ll be eager to see that iconic skyline in person (if you haven’t already).
