taxi to airport

by corysharon

I am getting off a cruise ship early am .. at port rashid cruise terminal. and have about 2 to 3 hours to make my flight. should I call a taxi and have it wait. or is it no problem getting to the airport?.and I hear it takes about 45 min.and does it take a long time to clear customs in the mornings??

Well, I think a taxi should be waiting for you to take you to airport the moment you get out of the ship! 2-3 hours is nit much time to wait for a taxi to come and pick you.
Good Luck.

Taxi is very economical. It is easy t oflag one down the street especially in the main street and touristic areas. You can call RTA (800-9090) to book one if you are in nowhere.

Depending on the traffic, it is yes, 45 minutes. Customs sometimes is faster but sometimes slow especially during prayer times or lunch time as not much people working. But it is just esy if everything is in place.

Good luck!

Travel Tips for Dubai

The Creek

by Airpunk

The Creek is the heart of the city and no place is so much linked with Dubai’s history as the creek. The first settelment of what would become Dubai were fishermens’huts along this inlet of the Persian Gulf. So, the Creek is no creek at all, but part of the Persian Gulf. As a trading point, the Creek developed into an important harbour and was expanded in the 1970s to accommodate also larger ships. Soon afterwards, the Creek didn’t keep pace with the development of the city. Today, the large ships use facilities outside of the Creek and it is becoming a place for small business as wellas a popular recreation area of the city. It divides the old town into Deira (northeast) and Bur Dubai (southwest). The land end of the creek has a number of receration areas like a wildlife sacntuary, a golf club and some parks. There are three bridges across the Creek, all situated to the southeast of the old town. The only possibilities to cross the Creek in the north are two tunnels (one pedestrian and one for motor vehicles) as well as the traditional wooden boats (Abras).

For information about what to see around the Creek, please check my “Things to do” – tips, especially Dubai Creek. For a little extra, check out “Old Cargo Ships on the Creek” in my “Off the beaten path”- tips. The transportation tip “Abra” may also be useful.

Nose kiss

by Gard

I noticed that some Arab men use an unusual way of greeting - i think that the greeting is referred to as a “nose kiss”. Around here men don’t really have that much physical contact apart from the occasional hugging so it was strange to see this form of greeting. There were other things that surprised me too. We saw several men hand in hand and that is something that you don’t see around here :-)

HAIR'S TO A CHILLED EXPERIENCE

by Siddha3th

With literally thousands of beauty salons catering to the girls, it's only fair that we guys get atleast ONE place for ourselves too, right? Enter Lounge, a funked-up, hip little homage to cuts, cures, and colours. Tucked away in a small nondescript by-lane in Karama, the Lounge sticks out like a rebellious neon thumb amidst its plain-Joe surroundings.

Inside, blown-up posters of kids with frazzled hair, large racks of gels 'n shampoos, and couches lined with magazines welcome patrons, together with nu-jazz flowing through the sound system. What's on offer here? You have your cuts, your colouring, highlights and for the slightly more adventurous (read flaky) of us - manicures (?!), pedicures (?!!), and full body "new-age" treatments (?!!!) No thanks, I'll pass.

But the crew are great at what they do. You'll find many small barbershops and men's salons strewn around town where a haircut will set you back by just 10 bucks. But if it's a slightly more sexy snip you're seeking, the Lounge delivers the final cut.

"I feel pretty, oh so pretty..."

by JessH about Paris Gallery

Paris Gallery is an ever-increasing chain of boutiques in the UAE that houses International brands of luxury cosmetics, perfumes, jewellery, sunglasses and accessories.

Each of the store's brands has its own specially designed counters as per brand retail concept specification, with friendly and knowledgeable shop assistants with expertise of each brand & product.

During special promotions you can also have a free make-over with professinal make-up artists paying a visit to the store.

Sometimes it's just fun to try-on different lipsticks, perfumes, sunglasses, etc... you girls know what I mean, don't ya...?

TIP:
As a non-meat eater and animal lover, I only buy cosmetics that are
not tested on animals. (e.g. Clinique, Revlon, Nivea, Avon, Face Stockholm, etc.)
If you interested to know which brands are cruel and which are cool, check this list. All major luxury brands are available here:
Estee Lauder, Clinique, Armani, Chanel, Christian Dior, you name it - they've got it.
Shiseido, PUPA and Make Up Forever are available exclusively at Paris Gallery outlets.

> Make-up
> Perfumes & Fragrances
> After shave, Eau de toilet
> Sunglasses
> Lotions, potions, etc.
Definitely worth a visit, as there are always special offers & promotions, and many luxury brands are actually slightly cheaper here than they would be in the USA, Europe, etc.!

Dubai Public Bus

by Rinjani

Travelling by bus is much cheaper than taxi. Bus stop is spread out everywhere, especially in the prime location.

The bus is usually every 15 minutes and there is schedule in every bus stop.
The schedule will be different on Friday (but you can always check in the schedule)

Usually the bus fare is 2 to 5 Dirhams, depend on the destination. Once you step in to the bus, you need to pay to the driver. Please always bring small change. It will be good if you can always bring coins with you, so you don’t need to wait for your changes.

Women usually are sitting in the front side, while men are in the backside.

You can also purchase the ticket books (and student will have reduction price).
Just check in the Satwa bus station.

The main bus station is in the Gold Souq. From here, you can pick any direction.
