Arriving in Destination

As befitting the capital of the Emirates, infrastructure in and around Abu Dhabi is excellent and arriving in the city presents no special difficulties. Highways are well signposted and well maintained.

Abu Dhabi International Airport An airport shuttle bus (Dhs4) links the airport with Al Zahiyah, stopping at the main bus terminal en route. Reasonably priced, metered taxis are available for Yas Island and to all points of the city. Some four- and five-star hotels operate free shuttle buses from the airport. Car hire desks are available in the arrivals hall.

Dubai Buses to Abu Dhabi leave from Dubai's Al Ghubaiba station every 40 minutes (singles Dhs20, return Dhs40) between 6am and 11pm. The trip takes about two hours. Alternatively, driving yourself takes the same amount of time.
