There is so much to do and see in Dubai that I can go on and on. To keep this post short and crisp, I will focus only on the most colorful and instagrammable places in Dubai. So, let’s dive into it.

Instagrammable Street Art places in Dubai

The city is becoming more popular not only due to art galleries but with these colorful and instagrammable places in Dubai. With painted street walls, Dubai is promoting different art forms such as contemporary, cultural and traditional, geometric, sculptures, and even 3D. These street art are not only making the town more attractive but also giving artistic vibes to the city.

1. La Mer Beach, Jumeirah

La Mer beach is one of the most coolest, colorful and interesting beaches you will find in Dubai. With many water sports, beach activities and interesting cafes, you will see incredible street art on this beach. This place is my fav weekend spot for sun bathing, playing volleyball, cycling or eating out. If you don’t visit La mer then your trip to Dubai is a total waste. LOL. Relax, just kidding but seriously you must include this beach in your itinerary or things to do in Dubai checklist. Trust me, you will thank me later.

4. Karama Streets

Karama is one of the oldest districts in Dubai and you can easily make that out by looking at its old styled buildings. I recently visited karama to visit a friend and found that the area has changed drastically. This place has been transformed into an interesting and colorful town of the city over the past few months.

The idea to uplift the charm of this area by huge murals on the buildings, has been really successful in enticing tourists as well as locals to visit Karama souq. In this area, you may find locals shops in the souk (market) selling clothes, watches, perfumes and souvenir at lower prices. For having plenty of Indian and pakistani restaurants, Karama is called food paradise.

This place offers photographers a great opportunity to take some nice shots.

How to reach there: Exit 2 from ADCB metro station (Red line) and 15 mins walk to karama souk

5. JBR Walk

It is the most modernized and urban part of Dubai. You will find a tram and a monorail for Atlantis from here. JBR is such a cool place to hang out, with many shops, cafes and restaurants around. There are many street art on different locations that you don’t know what surprise is waiting for you in the next corner.

JBR walk also has many little stalls selling accessories and decorative items but those are too pricey and I won’t advise you to buy things from here unless you are super rich. Above all, it is a must-see instagrammable spot in Dubai to see modern age Dubai.

Location: JBR Walk

How to reach there: DAMAC metro station (red line) -take tram from Dubai marina 1 to JBR 1 – walk 7 mins to The Walk.
