Transportation & Traffic conditions

One of the most important aspects of travelling to any place is to figure out the ways of local commute. Dubai has everything you need from local bus services, taxis, metro, and even water taxis. The roads are quite congested during the peak/office hours, that is, between 7 AM and 10 AM and also between 4 PM and 7 PM. The weekends see a lot of traffic later in the day, so you will have to plan your visit around the city very meticulously. Also, during rainy hours, it might get a little hectic with reduced visibility and requires a lot of attention on the roads. It is better to resort to public transport to stay safe during the rains.
