Big Bus City Tour - Blue Route

A great way to get one's bearings in Dubai is to take the Big Bus Tour.

There is not the time in one day to take advantage of visiting all the sites, and be aware the 109 minute timescale stated, is rather optimistic. Traffic is horrendous in Dubai and at times we felt it would be quicker walking! See the maps

Carol and I boarded at no 20 on the blue route, swapped to the red route at no 8, Deira City Centre Shopping Mall, with a 25 minute wait, and after 3 1/2 hrs finally made it to the Gold Souk, no 6. Coming back was a bit quicker, again swapping routes at Deira City Centre. But it's a long day and we didn't get time to visit the Dubai Museum or do any of the tours included. A separate ticket is issued for the Arabian Dhow Cruise which remains valid for a month. These were used 9 days later and well worth going.

The Blue Route has live English Commentary, whilst on the Red Route, one is provided with a set of earphones and there is a choice of 8 different languages. Everything is Dubai, is bigger, taller, more modern, more expensive and better than anywhere else in the world;)
