The Dubai Metro


If you know me well, you know that I’m not such a big fan of Dubai’s spending habits. The only reason I come back here every vacation is because of my family. I have expressed my opinion one too many times on the millions spent aimlessly to satisfy rich business men’s hotels of choice, simply because they believe they “require” that level of luxury. That “stupidity” is what I believe brought Dubai to the level it is at right now. One thing I definitely don’t think is a waste of millions, BILLIONS of Dirhams is the Dubai Metro.

After two failed attempts to ride the metro the first week it started running, due to overcrowding where apparently a whopping 76,000 people rode the metro the first day it ran, we finally got to ride the metro. The reason I fell in love with the metro was because it’s affordable [much cheaper than taxis or buses] and once all the stations open up it will save lots of people the hassle of the notorious Dubai traffic. It also means less cars on the roads, less accidents and less pollution [Green Peace, rejoice]. It’s fantastically designed, where the metro cars are driverless and really safe to ride.

Me and my brother got a hands-on experience with the metro [more like goofing around :P] and we captured it on video. Viewer beware, the videos you are about to see are NOT professional and only show a tiny amount of the metro, but they were really fun to tape and edit on my laptop 😛 so check them out if you’re bored and want to see what the Dubai Metro looks like up close:

Step 1: Getting to the Metro Station.

Step 2: Getting underground to the Metro Carts.

Step 3: Taking a ride on the Metro.

Step 4: Getting back home.
