And I’ll be your Sherpa on this international adventure as we explore Dubai this is a place that on paper seems impossible just years ago Dubai was a desert outpost refueling stop for flights from Europe to the Far East but now look at it the place is erupted into a regional. And international powerhouse on every level there are skyscrapers everywhere there are five six even a seven star hotel there are malls the infrastructure transport is all world-class this is a place that defies reality travel.

So it’s no surprise that the airport is really representative of Dubai’s go big or go home attitude the third busiest airport in the world this terminal that we’re in right now terminal was the single largest building on the planet when it was completed in they do not have fast things here in Dubai but the airport isn’t just huge it’s also world-famous Hertz amenities the duty-free shopping area is the single largest airport retail operation in the entire world there’s also games rooms a swimming pool. And three hotels just in the transit area alone. So you can see why this Airport is.
So popular for lay overs. And connections there’s a few ways to get into town from the airport one of the most popular ways is a taxi you can grab a taxi hours a day right in front of the airport. And it will take you into town at about to minutes depending on traffic. And how far you’re going the taxis are metered. And they’ll start at deer.
And that’s an airport fee. And the cost will be about to viren’s depending on where in Dubai you’re going this is a city that has spared no expense on its infrastructure or anything else for that matter it has a top-notch metro system trams taxis buses water buses. And even a monorail before you use any Dubai’s public transport services it’s worth getting one of these an old card revised public transit payment system. And you can pick up a bunch of different cards but I’d recommend the silver which cost des ramps. And that includes D rams of credit you can get them at any metro station.
