Travelling by car or taxi is the easiest way to get around, but this is all changing with the improvement in the public transport system.

The UAE is a small country and getting from one emirate to another doesn't take long. Road conditions are good and multi-lane highways connect major cities. You may find you can afford a more luxurious car than you could back home.

Driving in the Emirates may take some getting used to and traffic congestion is frequent. Traffic regulations are strict and there's a zero-tolerance policy towards drinking and driving. You can drive with an international licence, but you'll need a local license if you have residency status.

With high temperatures, it goes without saying that the UAE isn't very pedestrian or cyclist friendly. You can catch a bus or taxi in the major cities and Dubai's metro system is fast and efficient.
