Get behind the wheel and experience the freedom of exploring spectacular shopping malls and stunning mix of historic and modern architecture of Dubai, the most populous and modern of seven sheikhdoms comprising the United Arab Emirates. Despite being a desert city it provides well-developed infrastructure opening up excellent opportunities for sightseeing, shopping, sunbathing and even for skiing.
There are several districts in Dubai. For example, Jumeirah is popular with Europeans for beach recreation and Downtown Dubai is the home of many amazing buildings including Burj Khalifa – the tallest building in the world, Dubai Mall – the world's largest shopping mall, and Dubai Fountain – the world's largest choreographed fountain system.
Dubai can be entered by using Dubai International Airport (the largest hub in the Middle East), Abu Dhabi International Airport and Sharjah International Airport situated in the nearby sheikhdoms Abu Dhabi and Sharjah respectively.
When you pick up your rental car in Dubai, have in mind that due to a mixture of many nationalities the traffic is unpredictable there: some may find it chaotic while at the same time some may find it too organized.
There are also things you should pay special attention to, for example, pedestrians who can start crossing the road at any time, camels and goats can quite often be found on the roads outside of Dubai and if you notice powerful cars appearing on the horizon behind you, you better move aside and give them the road.
You should not also use hand gestures that may be misinterpreted, do not leave electronics or food in the car during the summer months to prevent overheating, do not drink and drive or use your mobile phone when driving – it is illegal. Speed limit varies from 40kph to 80kph within the city limits and from 100kph to 120kph on highways.
