Try Various Transport Modes During Cheap Holidays to Dubai

by Daisy Wilkinson Travel Guides

The largest city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Dubai is also the capital of the Emirate of Dubai. In recent times, it has become one of the world's most popular tourist destinations and is a renowned business hub of the Middle East region. The city has attracted global attention with its large-scale real estate projects and major sports events. Dubai is home to many towering skyscrapers and massive shopping and entertainment complexes. Another great feature of this ultra-modern metropolis is its efficient transport system, which helps you in reaching your desired spot in the city.

You'll be able to enjoy your cheap holidays to Dubai with the help of some of the city's cost-effective transport modes. Among them are the air-conditioned buses that can be seen moving around the city. There are more than a thousand of them in this part of the world and allow you to travel like a resident. You can also choose to travel in an open-top bus that travels to the main tourist spots in the city. Another great way to explore the city is by renting a bicycle from the BYKY station. If you're an adventure enthusiast and wish to go biking on the mountainous terrain of Hatta, hire a bicycle of your choice from TREK Bikes.

If you wish to rent a car, you'll need an international driver's license, third-party insurance, passport, and a credit card. Once you're out on the road, you can also drive out to the mountain town of Hatta. You can have a lot of flexibility in rates with the pay-as-you-go car rental apps, which you can use with your smartphone. You can stop a taxi anywhere in Dubai, no matter what time of the day or night it is. The taxi fares in Dubai are quite reasonable, but the fare per kilometre would depend greatly on factors like tolls and the time of the day.

While holidaying in this city, you can travel to popular landmarks like Dubai Marina and The Dubai Mall using the Dubai Metro. You can use the Nol card for travelling in these trains, which is commonly used to pay for bus, tram, and taxis. You can access the prominent areas of the city using their metro stations. Upon taking the Dubai Tram, you’ll get to travel to various destinations in the city between Al Sufouh and Jumeirah Beach Residences. The Palm's monorail station provides access to some of the iconic resorts on Palm Island.

During your holiday spent in this city, you can travel back in time by taking a ride down Dubai Creek or embarking on a journey through Souk Madinat Jumeirah using the traditional wooden boat called 'abra'. You can also enjoy a dinner cruise on a much larger locally-made boat called 'dhow'. Another great way of enjoying some delightful sights of this city is by travelling in a ferry or water taxi. One of the most luxurious modes of travel on water is a yacht, which you can rent from one of the local operators that provide yacht charters.
