I haven't been to dubai yet, going in September, but I've researched a lot on here(it's really useful, have a browse at some of the forum topics) and people recommend the cream coloured taxis as the best option. The taxis are quite cheap I believe.

The 'best' way? Uber Chopper/helicopter IMO 😉

The most practical way for most people is official RTA taxi from the stand. Cost effective, reliable, consistent and readily available at each terminal arrival. Generally well supervised - it's effectively a monpoly - and there's a range of options available to cover most people's needs.

Just be careful not to be persuafed by the hawkers offering 'limo service', as you'll likely pay 20-30+%more to travel in an unliveried Lexus or similar

Taxi at the airport exit, it is controlled by government, metered and no hassles. It is the cheapest and best option compared to higher grade taxis (Careem, for instance; or Uber) or hotel pick up.

Of late we are seeing most of the taxis are now fitted with working credit/debit card reading machines.
