Dubai Metro

As you may have read in my previous post, we did not have good experiences with the taxis in Dubai.

The Dubai Metro on the other hand was wonderful!

First, I have never seen a public transportation system that was so clean. Everything was sparkling! One of the reasons for this cleanliness is that no eating or drinking is allowed on any of the trains. Even drinking water will get you a fine if you are caught.

The Dubai metro system is not large but it gets you to all of the “must see” places and the price is reasonable.
The trains are driverless and reminded us a bit of the monorail at DisneyWorld.
The trains seemed to always be running on schedule and there were great views of the city from the train.

I definitely recommend using the metro as the main way to get around Dubai.
