Dubai Metro has become a hit with residents and visitors alike - and is certainly the smartest and cleanest - not to mention most comfortable - metro system I have experienced.

If you are planning to travel during the busy periods, plump for buying a Gold Nol Card at one of the Metro stations which allows you to top up, depending on your need and usage.

There is a separate carriage for Gold Card holders and when you are riding along towards the Marina on the Red Line you have a fabulous, uninterrupted view of the iconic skyscrapers along Sheikh Zayed Road and of the "new" Dubai.

On each Metro train there is also a carriage set aside for females only.

It is a very cost effective way of getting around some of the major landmarks along the main route of SZR.

The trains are driverless and go to almost every part of Dubai city. The views are great as you pass all the major landmarks and above all much much cheaper than a taxi! Clean and air conditioned to protect from the sometimes extreme heat.

Travel is a pleasure on the metro and good value for the distance. You may need a taxi to the station as they are not all close to the tourist locations. From Mirdif it was a taxi to the station and a lovely walk from the station via the marina to the beach if the weather is not too hot. The stations are spacious and very clean and with the information you need. The staff are all helpful.
