Getting Around in DUBAI

Renting a Car is the best option since they are cheap and if required some agencies hire out cars with a driver. Make sure to have an international driver’s license or temporary Dubai license for renting a car.

Metered Taxis are one the easiest ways to travel around the city but it could get difficult to find one during peak hours.

Dubai Metro covers the coastline and most of the hotspots except the old city. The Red Line currently runs from airport and covers the coast through Sheikh Zayed Road toward Jebel Ali stopping at all the major malls on the way.

Buses are a cheaper way to travel around the city but infrequent hence not very tourist friendly. They are also air conditioned and inexpensive.

Abra (boat) can be used to reach Deira and Bur Dubai.
