Well, you have a choice of taking a taxi directly from your hotel, which probably cost 250-3oo AED. Another way is to get to Dur Dubai bus station and take a bus to Abu Dhabi which could cost 25-30 AED from Abu Dhabi a taxi to your destination.
Your hotel may provide courtesy transport to many places and they could drop you by the Bur Dubai bus station!!
Good luck.

However, if you cant find that specific line on the page, when in Dubai always you can call the Toll free number of RTA to get the exact information. The number is: 8009090
Safe trip and good luck.

Travel Tips for Dubai

Dubai - Life in a protective (restrictive?) Bubble

by JessH

After having lived in Dubai since 1998 & having friends that have lived here twice as long, I have realised that life here really is a "protected bubble", with its censored media & society's own unspoken rules, and why the first thing everyone asks is: "Where are you from?"

1. Unspoken law:
The law seems to be literally "black & white" and will often be quite lenient with UAE Nationals (=Emirati =Local) in comparison to the punishment that expatriates would face. Example: speeding, reckless driving, parking tickets, bar-brauls, etc. This is slowly improving, but one can notice that Emiratis receive preferential treatment by the authorities.
And note this: a women, if harassed can defend herself - even physically. The boyfriend/husband however, better keep his hands in his pockets.
Generally, the hundreds of nationalities living together in Dubai reside in a relatively peaceful & accepting existence; just make sure you know the rules...

2. Unspoken law: (for women)
If a man approaches you & the interest/feeling is NOT mutual, telling him you are married will usually have little effect... many Arab/Muslim men seem to think that because Westerners are "allowed" to have sex before marriage & because women are allowed to go out alone, we don't really care about marriage & will cheat whatever chance we get.
So Ladies, be painfully direct and say: "I am not interested in you. I don't like you. Leave me alone".

3. The boys in green:
Dubai Police seem to implement the country's laws in accordance with their mood. If they are grumpy just shut up & don't argue. Also, it's a problem that many officers do not speak sufficient English. It always helps to know some Arabic or have a friend who does. (Strangely enough: if you speak Arabic they immedidately lighten-up and sometimes even let you off...)

4. Unspoken law:
In the public, women do receive a huge amount of respect in the Middle East. You may notice this when queueing and being asked to step before all the men waiting... 5. City of Eternal Youth:
One of the rarest sights is old people. It is as if they barely exist. Old grannies & grandads - they are not part of this surreal, youth-obsessed world.
Elderly expats don't exist here because work visas expire at age 60 (bar a few rare exceptions). The only senior citizens one ever sees are elderly parents visiting their expat-children. It can be quite startling to see a couple of silver-haired seniors after months of seeing nobody past middle age... Elderly Locals are just as rare. There are some older emirati ladies around the shopping malls, but they tend to wear the traditional "bronze-effect" face mask, so who can tell if they're fifty or ninety? As for old Emirati men - perhaps they prefer the quiet & privacy of their villas, away from the alien, modern world that has invaded theirs.

6. "Sophisticated Racism"
Dubai society can be described as "sophisticated racism": Western expatriates are respected less (& paid less!) than Locals, but are generally treated better (& paid more) than Asian expatriates (Philipinos, Indians, Pakistanis). Brits (well, the English) are nowadays being regarded as "snobby" by many Locals - after all: they colonised this country once...
If you are Scottish, Irish, German or Swiss, Arabs usually loooove you! Many Arabs holiday in Germany/Switzerland or send their children there for school.

7. Seeing & being Seen:
Dubai is the Los Angeles of the Gulf with its share of "trend setters". For them it's all about being seen in the right place, at the right time, with the right people.
"Coffee culture": People always meet in cafes, and the city get's very crowded during lunch-hours & Fridays. Dubai has many nice cafes, especially in Jumeirah along the Beach Road.

Sorry if you think that this tip isn't "politically correct"...
reality rarely is.

Eclectic Asian Chill Out in Dubai

by miso80 about Buddha Bar

I spent my birthday here...and I had a lot of fun :) I must say that it was the group of people that I was there with..but then again, they had good lounge music playing in the background and the waiters were quite friendly and helpful. It has the same-sized buddha as the other two Buddha Bars I've seen (Paris and Beirut)..and its no coincidence. I had a couple of drinks..and although the strawberry margarita was really yummy, I doubt they had any clue what an apple martini was :-D

It's not my favorite hangout spot..but every once in a while..the Buddha Bar is a nice place to drop by for a drink, some chillout music and a chat with friends. Smart Casual..or dress to impress..this place can handle both looks

DUBAI METRO Monorail - the first in the Gulf

by JessH

Finally! A cheer of joy from us road-raged, stressed & tired Dubai residents: after years of nightmarish traffic gridlock and seemingly endless construction the Dubai Metro (driverless mono rail) is here! This is the Gulf's first mass transport system and was openend to the public on Sept. 10th 2009 after 4 years of construction. For now, only 10 stations along the "red line" are open, with the remaining stations (delayed due to the global financial crisis) set to be completed sometime in 2010.

Dubai's major traffic issues are, and always have been:
> Rush hour seems to merge into a consistent back & forth of commuters coming from Jebel Ali or Sharjah.
> Public transport is nowhere near sufficient. Busses are old, outdated and overcrowded. They too are delayed by the heavy traffic.
> There are thousands of taxis in Dubai, but the heavy traffic has made the drivers quite uncooperative.

Facts about Dubai Metro:
--Once in full operation, the Dubai Metro System is projected to carry approximately 1.2 million passengers on an average day, and 355 million passengers per year.
--The Dubai Metro System has top-of-the-class, air-conditioned modern trains. Each train is approximately 75m long, consisting of 5 cars.
--The trains offer a standard class, affordable to all, a women and children only section as well as an exclusive 1st Class.

Passengers can purchase one-way single fare tickets or more adviseable are the NOL Cards, which are valid for a certain number of trips in one or more "Zones" and can be re-charged when needed.

Visit the below Wojhati website to plan your trip, or click on this link for all information on the Dubai Metro (constantly updates): http://www.arabianbusiness.com/specialreports/dubai-metro.

I have used the metro a few times now and in general it's quite convenient. I have a NOL Card which you can either purchase for single trips, or re-charge and use whenever you travel with the metro.
Please note that eating and drinking is not allowed aboard the trains or on the platform itself.

-->UPDATE 2010: The RTA (Roads & Transport Authority) have started a website for planning your journey on the Metro: http://www.rta.ae/dubai_metro/english/home.html
