Here's our list of 10 must-watch Dubai Instagram videos:
If you're wondering if professional thrill seekers XDubai inadvertently dropped their GoPro from the top of Burj Khalifa, think again! The camera was attached to the head of one of their fearless base jumpers (gulp!) and the POV is simply out of this world.
What better way to learn more about Emirati culture than through comedy? Abdullaziz Bin Baz makes his 3.3 million roll over with laughter with the satirical and humorous videos he posts on his Instagram profile.
His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai is a tour de force on social media. Two of his biggest interests are adventure sports and photography/videography, which put together make for a very impressive Instagram profile. Best of all, his 13.7 million followers are often offered insight into his family life.
If you’re after professionally shot video, the filmmakers behind Instagram profile awesomeemirati offer snippets of their amazing work, usually filmed with some of the latest gear on the market, drones and camera dollies galore.
