Former Harper's Bazaar cover star Kim Kardashian West turns 38 today! Although it's not her first trip to Dubai, last year she made a point to visit with her best-friend and make-up artist, Mario Dedivanovic, for three days to explore and host a beauty masterclass. She's been vocal about her love for the city, but here's the breakdown of some of her favourite (and most Instagram-worthy) spots to visit when she's in town.
1. The Atlantis Plam Jumeirah
During her holiday-meets-work-trip, Kim stayed at her go-to getaway, the Atlantis Palm Jumeirah hotel. Last time she was in town, her and then brother-in-law, Scott Disick enjoyed a 'low-key dinner' at the resort. The opulent spread may not be conversation-friendly but it certainly does make a good Instagram post.
2. Mall of Emirates
It wouldn't be a trip to Dubai without stopping by at least one mall. On this particular spree, Kimberly shopped at the Mall of Emirates - making a trip to Givenchy, the designer responsible for her stunning wedding dress.
This DIFC Italian restaurant proves to be a family-favourite, as Kris Jenner dines here regularly whenever she's in Dubai.
4. The Desert
During her last, Kim hit the desert with her pals Jen Atkin, Steph Shep, and Bazaar Columnist Carla DiBello and Simon Huck. The group drove around the dunes in a 4x4 and tried out some falconry while they were at it.

5. Rashid Centre for the Disabled
Kim paid a visit to the Rashid Centre for the Disabled, where the children welcomed her with a special stage performance and traditional dance.
