Transport from Dubai to Abu Dhabi for the Formula 1 Grand Prix November 2010

by kelly241

Hi My Husand and myself are thinking about attending the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in November 2010. I would like to know if we base ourselves in Dubai is it possible to book public transport(Buses , Coaches or Trains ) from Dubai to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on the Friday , Saturday and Sunday or is it easier to hire a car and drive ourselves. Thanks Kelly

Hi Thanks for that but hireing a car is really our last option we really need to know if there is any public transport that will take us or if they will be putting on special transport to transfer people from Dubai to Abu Dhabi for the race. Thanks again

Well then check with the official web site, I think they have some packages for travellers going from overseas on the following url:

Hi there
My husband and I are attending the AD Grand Prix this year, but we are still waiting for our tickets to be delivered this month with all the info on how to get to the race, etc. We will be driving our own car from Dubai and I have heard that they are operating a Park and Ride system, where you will leave the car somewhere in Abu Dhabi (such as Marina Mall, City Centre) and then take shuttle buses to the Yas Island track. Only certain ticket holders I believe can park right at the track. I didn't go to the first race last year, so I can't tell you what happened in regards to shuttle buses from Dubai, but I will ask a friend of mine who went last year and get back to you. I tried looking on the official website: www.yasmarinacircuit.com/
but there is no info as yet as to whether there will be transport options from Dubai. There are no trains to Yas Island from Dubai and public buses will only take you as far as central Abu Dhabi, as far as I know. Yas Island is located some way from AD. I would hire a car if I were you.

Travel Tips for Dubai

Ramadhan: The Muslim Holy Month

by JessH

I've noticed that in the Western World, there's a lot of confusion about Islam & its traditions. So I wanted to share my experience, understanding & perception of Ramadhan with you here:

In 2011, Ramadhan will take place from approx. Aug. 1st until Aug. 29th.

For over 1 billion Muslims throughout the world, Ramadhan is the 9th lunar month in the Islamic calendar. Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. It was the month in which the 1st verses of the holy Qur'an were revealed to Prophet Mohammad (PBUH = Peace be upon Him). It is a time for inner reflection, devotion to God and self-control:
-- Restraining the stomach from food & drink & the "private parts" from temptation.
-- Restraining other body parts: the tongue must avoid bad-mouthing, insult & lies; the eyes should avoid looking into things considered as unlawful or haram; the ears must stop from listening to conversation or songs that spoil the spirit of fasting.
-- Restraining heart & mind from indulging themselves in things other than Allah.

There are also clear rules about who is exempt from fasting:
> Children (before reaching puberty) & Pregnant & nursing women
> Women having their menstrual period
> Travelling people
> People performing hard, physical labour (especially outdoors)
> Sick people (diabetics, flu, etc.)
> Elderly people
> People on medication or who have a disability (physical or mental)

Muslims who were unable to fast may redeem their fast after Ramadhan has finished.

IFTAAR is to "break the fast" = breakfast.
This is done when the sunset prayer "maghreb" is heard. After breaking the fast (recommended are fresh dates & water or camel milk or Laban (drink yoghurt), they perform "vudoo" (=ritual washing before prayer), then pray and may then eat & drink a full meal.

Before the sunrise prayer "sohur", Muslims rise early from their beds to have a hearty meal before the day of fast begins. You will notice that many gather in typical Ramadhan tents, either as part of hotel restaurants, or in a tent in front of their residence. They sit together for many hours, spend time with the family & discuss matters of life.

The sighting of the new moon at the end of Ramadhan proclaims the celebration of Eid al-Fitr. (2-3 days public holiday).
Gifts are exchanged, especially for children (new clothes, school items, etc.) This is also the time that Muslim women usually visit beauty salons to have their hands & feet painted with "Hennah". Sometimes I go together with my mother (she is Muslim).

TIP: To wish someone a happy Ramadhan, say Ramadhan Kareem.
The greeting during Eid is: Eid Mubarak.

And remember: during Ramadan people may get a bit ratty towards the end of the day due low blood sugar level or feeling desperate for a cigarette!

Expatriates & visitors alike also enjoy traditional Ramadhan evenings, sitting on large pillow, gathering for "Sheesha" & Arabic specialities (hommous, falafel, etc).

CHECK HERE for a list of Arabic dishes:

CHECK HERE for information on Sheesha:

TIP: If you wish to see the traditional, quiet side of Dubai - as well as the hectic shopping malls, street scenes & nightlife, why not arrive during the last few days before the beginning or the end of Ramadhan?
You can then experience both "sides/faces" of the city.

Dhow Building Dubai

by Nemoa

The Dowhs are boats buils traditional style by the people of Dubai. Not today as much as in the past, of course, but still you can see plenty of them sailing the creek and mooring at the Dhow's Wharf.

There are different types of Dhows:
-For long distance travelling and cargo loading and unloading, called Al-boom, al-bateel or al-baglah in Arabic could reach as much as 60 m in lenght. You can see some of them still sailing the creek as floating restaurants.

-Sambuk, which is a small dhow of no more than 30 m. in length.

-The abras, that are water taxis crossing the creek.

Mall of the Emirates

by zuyao

This was once the largest shopping mall in the Middle East and is home to Ski Dubai. This huge complex is home to many of the world’s best brands including Louis Vuitton. It’s located pretty close to Souq Madinat Jumeirah and Burj al-Arab. So it’s a must-see when you are in this part of town. Most major brands are here and there is also a big cinema.

AWASH IN AN ARABESQUE AMBIENCE

by Siddha3th about KOUBBA

Koubba, awash in the warm glow of an ambience which is distinctly arabesque, is probably my favourite bar in all of Dubai. I'm addicted to watching the sun set from this rooftop bar - far across the Arabian Gulf, while being nestled in a comfy sofa out on the terrace, with an excellent collection of cocktails at hand to make the moment... just perfect.

The decor inside is warm and sexy, with a bar area lying adjacent to cozy, cordoned off divan settings. Pick a drink, but don't linger inside too long, because the magic to this place is to be found when you step outside. Out onto the ocean spreading far and wide beyond you, with a stunning view of the Al Qasr hotel's pools and gondola-filled canals right below you.

The cocktails do nicely in sustaining the magic... innovative little potions like the Golden Shooter (a vodka/ daquiri concoction) and the Blue Kamikaze. The place also whips up some excellent coffees, but mind you, there isn't any food menu at Koubba. It's all about spirits in here, and they're kept at a heady rhythm, helped along by the hushed smooth jazz flowing from indoors. If you're a sunset lover, if you're a cocktail lover, hell - if you're a lover period, be prepared to fall for Koubba.

Al Maktoum International Airport

The Dubai International Airport is located south of Deira, in the Al Garhoud district, 4 km southeast of Dubai.
In 2008, Dubai International Airport was the 20th busiest airport in the world and, with over 35 million international passengers, the 6th busiest international airport in the world, in terms of international passenger traffic.
