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
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.
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.
