    We used this tram a few times in Dubai and found it is conveniently placed to get to the sights that the metro does not go to. It has two connections to the Dubai Metro at Jumeirah Lakes and Dubai Marina stations and provides access to The Palm Island monorail. Tickets for Dubai Metro work with the tram but you have to buy a separate ticket for the monorail. The tram was driverless, safe and relatively inexpensive with plenty of standing room every time we took it.

    You can do different routes (see ferry website) but I did the 2hr trip from Al Ghubaiba to the other terminal at the Marina. I specifically picked this rather than a dhow boat or yacht cruise because it covered the downtown area for the classic skyline view rather than just Palm down to the Burj Al Arab.
    I was not disappointed.
    You can get super photos of the old town area, the dhows, downtown skyline, Burj Khalifa, canal, Burj Al Arab, Atlantis hotels and Marina area all from the angle of the water - which I really liked. It was also only about £10 for this trip so really economical.
    There are seats in the ferry but hard to get good photos through the windows so best to be outside. There are no seats outside and you cannot sit on anything there without getting a row so be prepared to stand for a while if doing this way. You need to sit down inside when at one of the stations but then they let you back outdoors again.
    There is a small kiosk for sandwiches and snacks including hot sandwiches like tuna.
    The ferry leaves at a set time and this journey is only at 1pm either from Al Ghubaiba or leaving from the Marina and doing the other way, so there is no return journey with this particular route (there is with the shorter ones).
    It goes a bit faster than you think and you need to hold on to keep steady at times so be careful when standing outside.
    Definitely worth it for the unrivaled views though.

    The first thing we did was getting the RTA cards and it's so convenient to use the metro. Can get very busy at times and that's something I love about the hustle. The stations and the trains are very clean and the stations have convenient stores too. Saves you a lot of time and money to get around Dubai. Very very convenient.

    It was an amazing experience to go for a Safari tour. Riding the camels, experiencing sandboarding, the dinner under the stars,belly dancing show unforgettable. Our driver Shameerka was very friendly and helpful especially for the pics.

    If you want to get to the Palme, you have two options - either taxi or take the monorail (the Palm Jumeirah Monorail runs a 5.45 kilometer route from the Gateway Palm to the outlying Atlantis hotel complex). Since the train is not part of the transport network, an extra ticket must be purchased and is not included in the metro/tram day pass. If you take the tram (in the transport association) to the monorail, you get off at a stop, have to go up a stairwell into a parking garage, then walk for about five minutes to the monorail ticket office (but it is well marked - with arrows and boards). The checkout area is only manned by one person, the walk-through machines don't work either, two employees scan the tickets, then you are allowed through (they could do it better!!).
    Since there are only two trains on the railway in two-way traffic, there are always long waiting times at the end stations. There are seats there, but otherwise it is very monotonous, with the doors for the Monrail on one side and on the other Window. Significant improvements could be made here for tourists by allowing four trains to run.
    We already knew the Hotel Atlantis, but you can easily get to Nakheel Mall and the “View of the Palm” by monorail. As has often been mentioned, the ride on the monorail is often hyped, which we can't fully understand - the ride is a bit expensive and you drive through high-rise buildings, the development on the trunk often prevents a view of the palm fronds, every now and then you can see them a few luxury villas and a few free areas of land, often also abandoned houses, a small slump in the economy is likely to be felt here too. Although traveling with the Monrail is cheaper than taxis, there is a strong need for improvements!!

    Never had a bad experience to date. It all depends on how we interact with the driver. Except for their change over time sometimes they refused to take you, otherwise never been told a NO. Decent cars and many modes of payment. Always know the areas and if not they offer their phone to use Google maps. Will recommend and to avoid illegal taxis roaming around.

    The trolley no longer moves but it is still worth a look, particularly at night when it is nicely lit up.

    It is located on the Boulevard in Downtown Dubai near the Wings of Mexico.

    We had a great morning with our guide Latif Jan. Prompt pick up and then out into the desert for quad biking, a short camel ride and some sand surfing. Our kids are 14 & 16, we had a quad bike each and all really enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend!

    Many thanks to GBI bus rental service in Dubai for giving me a special service. I came from Malaysia to Dubai for vacation with my family. Their advance booking is a good option where you can be tension free while travelling. Even though I was a little nervous for online payment but then I came to know that their all online payments are secured by VISA.
    On arrival they gave us free of cost pick up from airport to the hotel. Then as our plan we had Dubai tour and also Abu Dhabi tour. Their Desert safari tour was amazing and we really enjoyed alot.
    I strongly recommend people who come to visit Dubai to take service from GBI Bus rental Transport because they really care for their customer and they deal in very proper way
    Thanks again
