On my recent trip to Dubai, I rode the metro rail to the Dubai Mall and Deira City Center Mall. The rail is very easy to navigate as it is a straight line down Sheik Zayad Road. If you get the all day pass, it is more cost effective than paying per trip. The cars are separated by first class.... More

I experience the metro starting from rashdya station to the marina which gave me the opportunity to enjoy the sightseeing of the amazing busy city and let your children enjoy with you

Very clean, safe and it seemed that there was at least one police officer at every station. For the gents heads up as there some trains for women only. Look at the symbols before getting in. Highly recommend it!

This is truly the best metro service I have ever seen. It is always punctual fast and inexpensive. All stations are fjnish ed and maintained to a high standard. The actual metro carriages are clean to a level where you can't chew gum inside. They have inspectors who check everything. Makes access to dubai quick and convenient. Truly remarkable

This is by far one of the easiest metros I have ever used around the world. From the purchasing of tickets to following the map pathways. Very efficient and easy for any visitor to utilise. Only suggestion I would have is to be aware of how far the platforms and exits/entries to some metro stops can be before you are... More

What a dream using the rail system in Dubai, 20 dirham gets a day pass for unlimited travel till midnight on the tram and metro, for short trips in one zone it is as little as 4d. If you will be using the metro more than one day keep the card (called a nol) and the next day put it... More
