Travel Info

Dubai’s many wonders are well documented, but when it comes down to the basics - like public transport, weather, culture and business – your essential guide is below. So, with your plane tickets and hotel booked, read on to discover all you need to know before visiting our emirate.

Getting to Dubai

Dubai is ideally situated at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa, meaning that one-third of the world’s population is within a four-hour flight and two-thirds are within an eight-hour flight. With an excellent network of roads and highways connecting neighbouring Arab countries, and regular cruises to and from Dubai, the emirate is easily accessible by air, land, and sea.

More than 125 airlines fly to Dubai from destinations around the world, and a first-rate network of highways connect Dubai and neighbouring GCC countries. Whether travelling by car or bus, a modern network of first-class roads and highways link the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates.

Getting around Dubai

Connect seamlessly from the airport to your meeting point using Dubai’s state-of-the-art transport system. You’ll find a string of public taxis awaiting your arrival and, being a relatively small city, you can expect to be at your hotel or remote office in under 30 minutes. They accept most major credit cards, and will soon be wifi-enabled for passengers to stay connected on the go. You can alternatively use apps such as Uber or local-based Careem to hire a taxi.

Alternatively, jump on the Dubai Metro. The Red Line runs through the heart of the city along the arterial Sheikh Zayed Road. Stations serve the primary business hubs, such as the World Trade Centre, host to many of the city’s big conventions and exhibitions, and the Dubai International Financial Centre (hop off at Financial Centre station). The line continues all the way south to Jebel Ali and is being extended to eventually serve the World Expo 2020 site.

To make the most of Dubai’s public transport system, purchase a prepaid NOL card, which can be used for the Metro, Tram, buses and taxis. NOL cards can be purchased from any of Dubai’s Metro stations and selected bus stations.
