Probably, no one could have imagined fifty years ago that a futuristic and extravagant city will rise up in the middle of the desert and become one of the top travel destinations in the world. Dubai is like an extravagant playground where you can find anything you’ve imagined: from dreamy sandy beaches to ski runs inside a shopping mall. It’s a city with Islamic tradition in its roots but maintains a highly warm and open culture that welcomes people from all over the world.
Dubai is definitely a city of superlatives. The fastest growing city in the world has the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa, the largest man-made island, Dubai Palm Island, as well as, the number one 7-star hotel Burj Al Arab. Apart from the enormous shopping opportunities, the shopping malls in Dubai are the home of the most visited attractions. The Dubai Mall houses the Dubai Aquarium, while you can take a break at the Emirates Mall and go skiing.
Dubai consists of two parts: Bur Dubai and Deira, separated by the Dubai Creek. In Bur Dubai, you will find many historical places and monuments, including the Grand Mosque. Deira is considered to be the commercial centre of Dubai but is losing interest due to the recent development along Sheikh Zayed Road.
The public transportation in Dubai consists of metro, buses, abras and water buses. The metro is the most efficient way of transportation and there are two operating lines which intersect at Union and Khalid bin al-Waleed stations. The Red line makes stops at the Dubai airport and passes by Dubai Marina. The Green line connects the Dubai Airport Free Zone to the Dubai Healthcare City.
The Dubai bus network includes 79 routes but it’s much slower and it will take longer to get from one place to another. Dubai water buses and abras (water taxis) link Bur Dubai and Deira across the creek. Abras are especially popular among tourists as it is a cheap way to explore this part of Dubai on water. Dubai taxis can be found at the taxi ranks outside the metro stations, as well as, the main attractions.
Dubai International airport is the main hub for arriving in Dubai and it’s the busiest airport in the world by international traffic. This airport is located 4.6 km east from Dubai and the short distance makes it easily accessible. The second airport in Dubai is the DWC Al Maktoum Airport, located 37 km southwest. It’s the main part of Dubai World Central which is still under construction, while the Al Maktoum airport was opened in 2010.
The Dubai airport is on the route of the Red metro line with stops at T1 and T3. This is a fast way to reach Dubai city centre and the main attractions. There are regular bus lines departing for the bus stands at each terminal and the schedule can be checked online. Another option is to use a Dubai airport shuttle service. For transfer from Dubai airport to Abu Dhabi, there are regular bus lines available. You can hire a private Dubai airport taxi to Abu Dhabi airport, as well.
