ATTIRE & ALCOHOL

Renting a car affords visitors the most convenience, but public transport including taxis, monorail, water buses and the tram are all readily accessible throughout the city. The Dubai Metro is considered to be one of the most modern and cost-effective public transportation systems in the world, and it runs directly in and out of the Dubai World Trade Centre every few minutes for ease of access during your visit.
