We will be in Doha this autumn and would like to visit Dubai. Can anybody suggest travel alternatives to flying?
I just google mapped the route and it looked like an 8h30m drive. (Even longer if you take a camel)
(1) There is no rail connection, in fact in Qatar there is no railway!
(2) It is possible to drive however not in a rental car, believe me the paperwork is horrendous and (b) you drive through saudi so need a visa!
(3) Go by plane ... Fly Dubai is the cheapest option, flight is 45 mins
