Hi Folks, traveled couple of time with the Skytrain.It has a smooth drive...you just have to be carefull with choice of the vagon because there is always one that is only for women.And only you are there man!! Hapenned 2 times. Also you can buy VIP card and travel in the first vagon.Its twice more expensive(20aed).

The cheapest and best way to travel in and around Dubai is by metro, it is comfortable, air conditioned and it is cheap.

It is a good relatively cheap way to travel in Dubai. Strongly desist from travelling during peak hours though i.e. 7.30 am to 11 am and 5 pm to 8 pm. Very crowded during these times. Less number of seats is a downer too.

The Dubai Metro is simplicity itself and great value. Don't be afraid to use it as at every station there is a great information booth where advice is always available.

I thought Dubai would have one of the best metros in the world, but oh my - I was so wrong! The metro is so undersized and it wont fill the needs at all. I spent a week in Dubai and I never got a change to sit - even if I was traveling on off-peak times. A very good... More

The Dubai Metro connects the WHOLE of Dubai so you can go wherever you want in a matter of minutes. The best example I can give you is when we got off our flight at Dubai Terminal 1 and took the Metro (along with medium sized luggage) all the way to Al Barsha, where our hotel was located. (Mall of... More

If you're near a metro station and your destination is near a station as well, then don't bother taking a taxi - Take the metro. With only 2 lines it's pretty simple to find your way around and the prices are also quite reasonable. Note that it's quite a walk from the Burj Khalifa station to the mall... Very helpfull... More

What a beyond an imagination service ! You would enjoy the ride even ! First thing when I land in Dubai is taking the metro all the way to the hotel on the other side of the city and love the site seeing all the way

The Metro system in Dubai is fantastic, use it in tandem with the trams and your travels will be effortless and easy. Once you understand the routes it is very easy, just respect the areas in the carriages for women and children only they are signposted but easily missed especially when you are not used to it, but a brilliant...
