“Easy way to get around the city..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Cheap and easy way to get from one end of Dubai to the next and see the sights.
Only issue is that its a very popular method of transport for the local workers and it can often be difficult to find a seat. Try and avoid peak times such as 8-10am and 5-7pm.

“Best Metro I've Experienced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

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.

“Smooth and always on time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

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.
