New Guinness World Records for Dubai

It was a busy day in Dubai and traffic are now lesser than congested as before. This is because most of the commuters are now using the new 23 km Green Line Metro which opened last Saturday (September 10, 2011) to the public. The Dubai Metro entered the Guinness World Records as the longest automated driver-less Metro in the world with a total length of 75 km.

According to a Golf News article "Dubai Metro costs Dh29.5 billion and the next step is the completion of the Al Sufouh Tram, which is set to open in November 2014 at a cost of Dh3.45 billion,” said Mattar Al Tayer, Roads and Transport Authority chief. Dubai, which was losing Dh4.6 billion per year due to traffic congestion until 2007, has saved Dh35.7 billion in time and fuel due to RTA projects costing Dh60 billion."

Not only the local residents of Dubai benefits on this new facility but also added attraction to business and tourist. Most of the tourist enjoyed the city more due to lesser travel time specially on the road during peak hours.

Going for a tour on a budget is best during off season. You can save a lot of money, avoid the crowd and high rates during peak seasons.

A desert tour generally involves adrenaline-pumping activities like camping, camel safaris, quad biking and even aDubai buggy desert safari
Desert camping in Dubai for instance, has some wonderful options like overnight camping where you are surrounded by the calm and peace of the desert region for an entire night. Of course, there will be tour guides along to guide you but you could even opt for a stay at special luxury hotels in Dubai in case roughing it out is not for you. 
Dubai sightseeing tours on camel back are another Gulf novelty where tourists can go for a short ride in the desert along a camel track. The ride maybe a tad bumpy, but rocking on the ships of the desert is infinitely worthwhile. 
Whether you are visiting Dubai for conventions or for a short recreational trip, a desert safari in Dubai is equally enjoyable for both types of stays. If you are unsure about the arrangements though, hire an established travel operator that can help you out.
