Where to Find the Best View of Burj Al Arab in Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Two structures define Dubai: Burj Khalifa and Burj Al Arab. It’s easy to take photos of the Burj Khalifa at the Dubai Mall’s near the fountain area. But with Burj Al Arab, it’s much more difficult.

On the way to Palm Jumeirah to see the Atlantis? You can take some photos of Burj Al Arab. But to those without a higher megapixel camera, the photos can be blurry. This shot was already taken using Pixel 6:

The world’s most luxurious 7 stars hotel is probably the most iconic symbol, one that you always find on TV. If you want to take photos of Burj Al Arab without venturing far at the Jumeirah Public Beach (which can be scorching hot btw), the beautiful complex of Souq Madinat Jumeirah hotel offers tons of vantage points to choose from.

I love Souq Madinat Jumeirah. It’s one of my favorite places to hang out, after Dubai City Walk. I’m going to let the photos tell its story.

During the holiday season, they have Christmas Markets. Of course, it doesn’t have the same Christmas vibes as Christmas Markets in Europe, but that’s okay.

You can shop for souvenirs, from abayas to Burj Al Arab decorations and sand paintings. I’ve seen the sand painting done live in my Arabian Desert Safari adventure.

Meanwhile I got myself a scoop of Camel milk ice cream. The cream was so rich and icky. I felt that my stomach had turned a little lactose intolerant afterward. So proceed with caution!

And at certain parts of the Souq Madinat Jumeirah, you’ll find the Burj Al Arab. Unblocked. Of course, during New Year’s Eve it will be packed. So if you’re planning on watching the fireworks at Burj Al Arab, then you’ll need to plan ahead and come early.

There are a lot of Italian restaurants and brunch spots around the Souq Madinat Jumeirah. In case you’re looking for something Asian in flavor, try the Noodle House. This ain’t no Wagamama. I highly recommend getting one whole Steamed Seabass. The best part about Noodle House? Unlimited rice.
