“Nice and cheap”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

A good way to travel around Dubai. Maps and announcements are clear. But It's crowded sometimes.

“Is This An Attraction?”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

Not sure why this is rated as an "attraction," still less Number Two. Between this and the Dubai Fountains you gotta wonder if the city has any real attractions....
It's a clean, efficient Metro system that could use some better air-conditioning, and be warned that it gets packed solid at times, mainly with Indians and SE Asians (few Emiratis appear to use it: they prefer expensive cars). The Nol ticket system works well, but can get a little confusing, and requires study to ensure you get what you need. Both buses and trains have "women and families (presumably women and children rather than, say, spouses or siblings)" sections which are invariably less packed than the other sections. The prices are fairly cheap, so for tired and footsore tourists who don't fancy standing jam-packed with local lower-middle class commuters the Gold Class car can be well worth the price, especially heading out from the city as you get a panoranic view out the front.

“Not for Tourists?”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

Highly modern, very efficient and clean, but it doesn't really get you close enough to the touristy places. Better to see Dubai on the Big Bus tours and when you know where you want to go, use the plentiful and cheap sand-coloured taxis.
