Traffic congestion in Dubai

by Chyan

Is there any traffic congestion to Dubai International Airport from Deira City Centre usually? If yes, can you advise how many hours before should i leave Deira for the airport to check-in for my flight?

i can't believe Dubai is congested throughout the whole day.

I can't tell you how long as an accident could make a big jam easly, about traffic congestion think for a while Dubai is NOT pedestrian friendly... let say it could be congested since early morning.

btw if it was not a congested city, why are they doing the metro?

Well you have to check in at least two hours before your flight, so I say if you leave Deira City Center three hours before your flight you are really safe!! :-)

Re: Traffic congestion in Dubai

There are speed limits imposed on the UAE drivers by the Government there. So why don't the drivers there take care and heed the traffic rules? No wonder airBaltic Inflight Magazine says no one walks on the roads of Dubai. I shall try to follow wise.

Re: Traffic congestion in Dubai

Deira is the old part of the city so the roads are smaller than in the new areas. It is also the commercial heart of the city so there is a lot of traffic. Combine the two and you get inevitable congestion.

The worst jams are in the evening rush period when people go back from Dubai to Sharjah, which takes them past Dubai airport. However, the airport is only about 7 kilometres from Deira so unless there is a major accident it doesn't take too long.

By the way, as you'll find when you get here it is not true that no-one walks. You will find plenty of pedestrians in Deira and Bur Dubai.

Is Kish Air (next to Claridge Hotel) and Deira Post Office Building near to each other so that i can walk over from Kish Air's office? Can i see them from Union Square Dubai Metro Station?

Re: Traffic congestion in Dubai

by colin_bramso

They are not far from each other. You cannot see anything from a railway station, any more than you can from inside Orchard MRT!

Re: Traffic congestion in Dubai

by Chyan

But there should be direction signs in a Dubai Metro station telling you where the landmark(s) is/are, right?

Re: Traffic congestion in Dubai

by colin_bramso

Not necessarily - and the places you want are not landmarks anyway. Just ask the staff in the station for directions.

Travel Tips for Dubai

Housing and Accommodation

by Rinjani

With a rapid development in Dubai, housing becomes quite popular issue these days.
Whether you are looking for room, flat, apartment or villa, it’s not just about the high price, but also availability.

Middle to lower budget will find it’s quite difficult to find a decent place to stay with the tight budget. The alternative way is to sharing accommodation.
The accommodation hunting also depends on the location.

Again, a rough illustration. Room only in Jumeirah costs around AED 2,000 to 6,000. per month plus water and electricity. Usually, a villa in Jumeirah has two to four bed rooms, available for rent. While one bed room apartment in Jumeirah starts with AED 75,000 per year. Villa with three bed room starts from AED 100,000 per year.

Satwa, Karama and Bur Dubai are favourite locations for new comer in Dubai. But the issue is to get accommodation in these areas are also not easy. Sharing accommodation in apartment per room starts from AED 1,250 above. Two bed room apartments starts from AED 30,000 per year.

Accommodation in Deira is little bit cheaper than aforementioned areas. (Room starts from AED 800 above) But many buildings are quite old and also the availability is pretty rare.

Another option is bed space. But for this kind of option, you must have first class of tolerance and patience to other people, since there will be at least 5 people in one room.

Some new apartment and housing area such as The Greens, The Meadows, Emirates Hills, Marina are quite fancy, since there is an option to own property in Dubai. But to rent apartment or villa in these areas are quite expensive.

Golfing in Dubai :-)

Arabian Ranches

Arabian Ranches Golf Club – formerly known as The Desert Course, Arabian Ranches, was built as a true 18 hole, par 72, desert style grass course, a signature course designed by Ian Baker-Finch in association with Nicklaus Design. Miss the immaculate grass of the fairways and greens and you enter the “sandy waste”, with its indigenous shrubs and bushes. All standards of golfer will also appreciate the GPS (Global Positioning System) yardage service available on every golf cart.

The Spanish Colonial style Clubhouse boasts the Ranches Restaurant and Bar, with a terrace overlooking the panoramic scenic views over the 9th and 18th holes, a great place to meet and try the international menu. Within the Clubhouse there are 11 luxurious Guest Rooms with spectacular views overlooking either the Golf Course or the Lake, each en-suite room is beautifully furnished. Step out of your room, hop onto your golf cart and drive or walk straight to the first tee, totally refreshed for your game of golf. The perfect setting for any golfer.

Architect Ian Baker-Finch, who knows all about links courses after his triumph in the 1991 Open at Royal Birkdale, believes the Arabian Ranches Golf Course is a unique challenge, “I spent many days on the site walking though the sand dunes with the camels before deciding on the best use of this unique property. I love the natural desert terrain. My hope is that you will love the natural flow of the holes through the sand dunes and wonderful desert landscape.”

Overall Arabian Ranches Golf Club gives you an all round unforgettable golfing experience.

Western look

by solopes about Burjuman Mall

One of the top "monuments" of Dubai is the Burjuman Center.

Yes, it is big! Yes, it is modern!

But I came out with the feeling that I had already seen it before, but can't remember exactly where. Luis Vuiton, Zara, H&M and other, are names that sound to me as something I knew from... from... Forgive me, but I swear I have seen them somewhere else!

More than a decade... more than a feeling...

by JessH about ROCK BOTTOM Cafe

No matter how many new & pumping clubs open up around town, at least once a month I find myself being drawn-back to this place... it's a tradition, a legend, a classic. If you're looking for a fancy clientele with zen interiors and sophisticated cocktails: this is not the place for you ;-) This is a place where you'll get laughed at for showing up with a shirt & tie or a Burberry purse - so just relax, kick back & go with the grubby, jagged & rocky flow.

First opened in August 1996, Rock Bottom's has had its ups-n-downs, but at the end of the day if you've been having a boring & expensive night at any of the new & flashy clubs in Dubai, walk into Rock Bottom's and you're always guaranteed a great crowd, great music & an atmosphere you can't beat!

Like most nightspots in the city, it transforms from a casual restaurant in the early evening to a pumping club towards the wee hours... Food is good & affordable, with your usual burgers, lasagnes & grills but unfortunately no nice vegetarian choices.

The decor reminds of an American biker-bar (actually, they have 3 bars in there so you never have to go thirsty), with pool tables, dining booths in red leather & a medium-sized dancefloor & stage for the live bands.

> Ladies Night (2 free drinks) EVERY NIGHT exept Thursday!
> TUESDAYS: Free champagne (or Vodka Mixers in an authentic Rock Bottom's Mug) for ladies all night.
> FRIDAYS Karaoke & select drinks for only 2 Dhs (50 $cents!) for ladies!

No matter what night of the week, what time of the year, you'll always find a great crowd and pumping music (everything from Rock oldies, Pop, Dance, Reggae, etc.) with the DJ & live band switching places every 30-45 min. BOYS: Smart-casual. Jeans are fine, but just to be safe guys should wear shirt with collar. Sneakers are fine but no sandals.
GIRLS: just bring a smile and I.D. and in you go.

Opening Hours: 7 days a week, 12noon - 03:00am.
TIP: If you're feeling brave, try the notorious "Bullfrog" - all white spirits with a dash of Blue Curacao & Red Bull (it comes in a pint glass)

--> UPDATE April 2008: This year's TimeOutDubai Awards rated Rock Bottom's number 16 out of the top 50 nightclubs in the city.

Great seafood and Shisha

by xaver about al Bandar

We really had a great time at this place it's on the Creek, you can come here for dinner or just in the afternoon to have a tea and smoke a shisha.
Seing the location you expect this place to be touristic but with a big surprise the place if really full of locals really a small percentage of tourists here. Great seafood, particulary good the salmon and cavriar toasts and the grilled hammour.
