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.
Abras 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.
Arriving by Air
Airport is a busy airport that serves Dubai with
both international and domestic air services.
For 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.
