This is a picture of me on the Dubai Metro. I caught the metro from the airport into the center of town and then took a bus to the hostel where I was staying. The metro was cheap. I bought an all-day pass for $5 and it came with unlimited rides on the metro trains and the buses. The Dubai Metro is one of the best metros I have ever been on. It was very modern, very punctual and it was the first metro system that I had ever been on that had wi-fi on the metro trains. The picture is one I took when the train was relatively empty. It was rarely as empty as you see it here. I found that I often had to stand on the metro. It wasn’t as packed as I’ve seen some metros but it as often well occupied, especially in the more heavily traveled sections of the city.
