The Dubai metro runs the length of Dubai from past the airport all the way past the Marina and on to Jebel Ali. It is efficient and always on time. It stops at every station, so a trip from the Marina to the airport will take to 40 min for around 35 KM. Taxis are not always easy to find... More

I know the Dubai Metro was only opened in 2009, but it is clean and shiny! Super easy to access and great a/c! Be careful you don't enter the ladies/children only car from 5-8 pm--there can be a fine for men!

Very easy to use- to simpilfy things get your ticket at a ticket counter to make sure you get the correct one (everyone speaks english) and you then use it to swipe in and out of every station. Can be very crowded on peak hours.

Very efficient and clean metro around Dubai with nice stations. Only complaint is how much time it takes to reach Mall of Emirates( indoor ski slope and snow park) from the Deira ( Old Dubai) station which is about 1 hour.

I have no chance to try on the Dubai Metros this time, mostly I had been in the coach. The Metro Stations look gorgeous, with the air-con insde. I like the most, is its design, is similar to the space crafts!!!!

Dubai metro is the cheapest mode of transportation in Dubai. Taxi in Dubai is akin to murder and traffic is indeed an issue. Metro is fast and cheap. There are stations at most of the malls which you would love to visit. The only issue is that the network is two sided and does not cover entire area. Nevertheless, it... More

Having lived in Dubai nearly 10 years we love, but underutilise the Metro. Recently we traveled from Noor Bank to JBR and had an amazing time. It is clean and easy to use. I would recommend it for a sightseeing tour as the views are better than the big bus. We traveled at 8pm in the evening and the Metro... More
