Getting Around Dubai

by IreneMcKay

Hi there,
I have been researching the new Dubai Metro on-line and am still not sure how much of the red line is open. I am also unsure if I can use the red line to get to the gold/spice/ vegetable souk area. Is the red line useful for having a look at Burj al Arab, the palm shaped islands in the sea and the beach?

Very confused and would appreciate help.
Thanks,

Irene

Hello there. When in Dubai, just call 8009090 RTA, (Toll free), they know the latest updates on Metro stations!!

(Aaargh! I wrote a long reply and my computer froze-up! So here we go again).

Dubai Metro is (in my opinion) most useful for "hopping" inbetween the major shopping malls. The red line runs along the Sheikh Zayed Road (main highway) through the city.

From first-hand experience I can tell you that the RTA's feeder buses (from the metro stations to other areas of interest) are still very unreliable and inconsistent. Hopefully this will improve soon.

The nearest station to the Gold & Spice Souq is called Union Square.
From there, it's still about a 30 minute walk to the souqs (also keep in mind that summer is coming, and currently it's about 40 degrees during the day with quite high humidity.)

Click on this map to enlarge it; it's quite useful:

For Burj Al Arab, The Palm, etc. the metro isn't nearby. You'd need to take the feeder buses (which I don't really trust.)

Instead, you could use the BIG BUS TOUR of Dubai. This gives you a great view of the city and it tends to drive through more interesting areas than the metro does. (copy & paste this link into your browser for details.)

I hope this info helps,

Travel Tips for Dubai

Emirate Flag of Dubai

by xuessium

Members of the UAE may also fly their own flag.

The Dubai flag is easily spotted as it is commonly flown alongside the country's flag.

The flag's origin is probably based on Dubai's maritime past.

Sunglasses, moisturiser, sunblock

by Durfun

Have several shirts & trousers, as if you visit in summer, you will surely need to shower & change more than once!

You should also bring a sunhat & sunglasses, the latter is handy even in winter as the sun is quite bright even when it's cloudy!! Sunblock, moisturiser Carry extra memory & your battery charger for your digital camera. I got so carried away clicking away at the various, funky skyscrapers & the Dubai Museum exhibits, that my battery nearly ran out. From past trips I felt a single charge should last enough for 5 days & so I did not take my charger!

Also, don't forget that this is a desert, hence carry good cases to protect your camera from a freak sandstorm! The beaches are nice & welcoming, so don't forget to take your swimming kit & towels along. Some hotels offer them, and others charge for beach towels. Ideally buy lifeventure antibacterial towels as these are very compact - ideal for travelling.

Shop till you drop

by besal

So many things under one roof... Everything you can buy in between your stop over...or while your next connection leaves.

Liqor, Chocolate, ciggis/cigars, electronic, clothing, bags, books, toys, etc etc etc.

But NO DRESS SHOES :o( Foreign currency, traveller checks, credit cards

Watch the sunset over the water

by nattybabe about 360 Degrees

One of the must dos while in Dubai is to have drinks at 360. It is located at Jumeriah Beach hotel at the end of a long bridge so it literally has a 360 degree view of the water, hotel and Burj Al Arab around you - very nice. The bar is circular and has couches surrounding the outskirts. Price may be an issue if you want exclusive use of the couches though as I was quoted a minimum spend of AED15,000 for the priviledge. Hmmm… maybe not!! We were lucky however and got ourselves use of the deck chairs which in my opinion are better than the couches anyway. They were free to use and seated 2 - 3 people per chair. They also had mini tables next to each one to rest your drinks on. It is a perfect spot to watch the sun go down. The deck chairs and couches did have "table" service or there were several bars to order from. Bar food is also available. There is a fantastic DJ and dance floor and you will find yourself dancing away until the wee hours of the morning.

The downsides to 360 are that drinks are expensive (around AED65 for a mixed drink and AED 45 for a beer) and you also need to be on the guestlist to gain entry. To do this simply google 360 and follow the links for that weekend's events. Finally, 360 is also seasonal and is open from October through to late May/early June.

Entry starts from 4pm until late. Casual, but classy

Dubai Taxi

by Rinjani

This is not a cheap way to travel, but much more comfortable. Taxi fare in Dubai starts from 3 Dirham. And if you call the operator to pick you up from certain location, the fare starts from 4 Dirham.
The fare is around 1.71 Dirham per kilometer (need to check)

My experience with taxi (I am regular taxi customer : ) ), usually the driver is well behave and they are friendly too. Tipping is not necessary, but according to my experience, they will be more than happy if you do.
Some of taxi driver from certain company is trained to recognize the customer. It’s quite often for me to surprise when they recognize me after two weeks or even one month.

My favorite is Dubai Transport Taxi.

National Taxi 336-6611
Dubai Transport 208-0808
Cars Taxi 800-4825
Metro Taxi 2673222
