The Dubai Metro system is very simple, with only three lines, and all directions are in both English and Arabic, so english speakers should have no problems. I went from the IHG Intercontinental Hotel, near the airport to the stop for the Palm Island with no problems. Just be aware that the last part of the trip to the Island requires a different monorail system with additional costs. However, it is entirely possible to go by public transportation to the Palm Island and the Atlantis Hotel, which is well worth seeing. Buy a day pass and it will work for you on all lines.

It was interesting to know the trains are self driven! first carriage is for ladies only so watchout for the signs, this one is for first time travellers to dubai.
If you are not sure which way to go ask the ticket agent at the station they are helpful and will let you know how far your ticket can take you.
Use it it is easy!. gets a little crowded at the end of the business day

Obvious choice for getting around, it is safe, frequent and airconditioned. Single males beware, don't sit in the pink ladies only seats!

Covers only north to south, doesn't reach all places like in most advanced cities. Also I found it a bit slow. Needs more coaches,.. Overcrowded. The coaches smell a bit strange, like a clinic, maybe the disinfectant they use!!

It is very clean and accurate, but on rush hour it will be bad with all Asian, most like no Arabic using the metro.

It is faster that taxi if only on rush hours and long trips. Not that cheep but if course cheeper then dubai taxi the uber.

You can not eat or smole or drink any things even water or even a gum. And if you do so you will pay fine.

The Dubai Metro is very convenient and has stops in places where we park the car where the train starts and take it to the areas where there is little parking like to Creekside Souk (shops) area. It can get very full during peak hours but off peak a pleasure.

We used the Metro to return to Jumeirah Beach Resort from The Dubai Mall. The cost was very cheap and the trains were immaculately clean and the service was excellent.

It's easy to move around Dubai by using the metro. It costs very much lesser than taking a taxi or even driving your own car. During peak hours use the gold cabin to avoid the congestion. It's a bit more costly but still very affordable and convenient compared to taking a taxi.
