As well as Dubai International Airport,
there are other methods of transpot
into Dubai. The UAE road network
is inconsistent but is reasonable
into Dubai city center. Rail is
also an option.
on the Creek, Dubai An abra is a
water taxi and they have been used
as a way of getting across the Creek
for many years. This is still an
effective means of transportation
for many in Dubai. It costs just
50 fils one way.
International Airport is a busy
airport that serves Dubai with both
international and domestic air services.
getting around Dubai there is a
fairly good bus service, mini buses
and taxis. Most people who are staying
for some time make sure they have
access to a vehicle, as there isn't
a reliable public transport system
beyond the city. Car hire is not
too expensive, the roads are in
good condition but the rules of
the road are not always carefuly
observed. Be very careful until
you are used to it and be aware
that roundabouts are particularly
hazardous. as are wandering camels.
