Quick, convenient, and safe transportation, good for lot of places in Dubai. A little bit crowded in rush hours. There is a carbine for women only, like that.

I've tried to drive in Dubai but I was lost must of the time and was getting headaches to find where to park. The metro very convenient since it deserve most of the city and has access to most popular attractions.
