    Dubai Transportation

    Compared to similar cities, taxis in Dubai are cheap and plentiful. The cars are clean, new and safe, and the drivers won't rip you off. Although Dubai's transport system is improving, it's still a city of cars, and it makes sense to use a taxi at some point in your trip.
