In today’s world where everything never really happens unless it is posted on social media, you can expect an endless stream of photos and videos that tells stories about how good someone’s life is.
People flaunt their wealth and brag about anything they do as if they have never had even a single bad day, ever.
After all, social media accounts filled with dreamy life experiences actually are some of the most popular and have plenty of loyal followers; case in point, the “Rich Kids of Dubai” account on Instagram.
Let us first be clear here, we are not talking about any specific group of individuals, but a collection of “wealthy lifestyle” stories compiled in one Instagram account.
In short, the account is about how the super-rich people spend money and enjoy themselves in Dubai.
Capitalizing the now famous “Rich Kids of X” catchphrase, the account contains hundreds of posts to depict what it looks like to live a privileged life.
10 Shopping Spree
Many cities are conveniently known all around the world for being the home to a wealthy population; Dubai is certainly included in the list.
It is not surprising that Dubai also has some of the world’s largest shopping centers including Mall of the Emirates and the Dubai Mall.
The rich need to find places and spend their money, and those malls cater to their spending habit.
For the boys and girls, spending their allowances in malls is a favorite after-school activity.
9 You Are What You Wear
Judging from the photos and videos posted on the Rich Kids of Dubai Instagram account, it is easy to see that just about anyone has the finest threads of clothing, fancy jewelries, and designer accessories.
Sometimes being a member of a rich family means you have to showcase respectable image and reputation in the society; for these kids, it often means maintaining wealthy outlook.
A quick way to achieve that is by wearing the best outfit for any occasion. You’ll be judged from what you wear.
8 Superb Restaurants
Regardless of how rich you are, you still need foods to survive.
The big difference between the wealthy and the underprivileged is how much their meals cost and where they eat.
Just because Dubai is situated in the Middle East, it does not mean the cuisine is nothing but Middle Eastern.
The city is an international tourist destination, so the restaurants have to live up to the city’s reputation.
Internationalism is reflected not only by the culinary array, but also by the restaurants’ interior designs and overall architectural approach.
Afternoon tea on the rooftop of a skyscraper is nothing unusual, and so is dining in a fancy yacht.
7 Uber Copter
In any typical busy city street jammed with thousands of vehicles, you’ll be pleased to get in a comfortable relaxing car that can cruise easily through the traffic on the way to school.
Again, things are a little bit different in Dubai, as shown in the Instagram account.
In case some rich kids wake up late in the morning, calling Uber Copter is a convenient way to get to class on time.
When even a Lamborghini cannot help you get to school fast enough, a helicopter will.
