I think it’s pretty easy to get around Dubai via the metro. Clean and efficient. Like the fact that they have a gold cabin as well!

Dubai METRO is one of the best and the cheapest way of getting around the city from one place to another. Get your NOL cards at the train stations. These cards also help you get around in buses & Dubai Tram.

The stations are big and somewhat detatched from the areas they serve. Wherever you get off you'll likely have to do a bit of walking to get to your destination.
