Oh this should also be a tourist attraction in its own right. We took the Metro from the Dubai Mall to the Mall of the Emirates and were so amazed by the whole system. The stations are so futuristic and beautiful. The trains and stations (like everything in Dubai) are air-conditioned and very clean. I wish the Tube in London... More

It connects you to many places of interest in Dubai including Burj al Khalifa, Emirates mall, Dubai mall, Ibn Batute mall and Jumeirah beach. I preferred to pay 16 Dirhams and buy a full day unlimited pass. It is more economical. It usually works from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m and the last train will be over-crowded.

If you want to travel around Dubai on a budget the Metro offers great value for money. Don't travel during the rush hour though as they tend to get very packed.

The cleanest public transport system ever. Very easy to get around using a swipe card that can be prepaid and topped up as required.

Easy to navigate in English, convenient train times, and very clean. We went all over Dubai on the metro. Loved the Share Tea (Bubble Tea) shop at the Deira City Center Metro Station.

WE used the metro to get from Mall to Mall. There are two lines and it is a quick and easy transport system. If you are mall skipping I'd recommend the metro rather than a taxi for sure.

Good way of travelling along the centre of Dubai. Careful not to sit in the female section of the train ;)

This is a very good way to travel especially on rush hours.Even though it comes quite fast it is always crowded. There are 3 departments : where men sit, where women and children sit and VIP , if you do not have a VIP ticket don't go there as there are pretty good chances that police will throw you out... More

The metro is a novel experience, clean, sleek and driverless. However the trains were full and i could not move. Also lots of people on the train did not wash and had odour problems. Would recommend if you visit Dubai, as it is better than other trains ive been on around the world. But they definitely need more trains.
