It’s no secret that the A-list loves the UAE. In the past few years, we’ve seen everyone from Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner to Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel Iman running through town.

More recently, however, we’ve watched as the city has been practically taken over by actors, professional athletes, models, and musicians. In fact, 48 hours into Eva Longoria’s trip to Dubai, the television actress got engaged to boyfriend Jose Antonio Baston during a desert safari. What followed? An Instagram post featuring Eva, Jose, and some beautiful sand dunes courtesy of the Liwa desert. And when celebrities aren’t getting engaged, they have no problem taking advantage of the Emirates’ shopping mall backdrop. Case in point? Floyd Mayweather splashed out a cool $1.1 million (AED 4 million) on a Hublot watch at The Dubai Mall during his most recent visit before heading to the Mall of the Emirates for a trip down the ski slope. Did he post about it? Of course he did.

Abu Dhabi gets a lot of Instagram love too. A favorite of Tyrese (who seems to be spending most of his time in the UAE these days) and Victoria’s Secret beauty Candice Swanepoel, the city’s capital is the prime setting for some serious social-media moments.
