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.
