Dubai International Airport is the largest hub in the Middle East and the home base of the very successful airline Emirates. The airport is famous for its duty-free shopping. The airport is continually expanding and being developed to cope with the ever increasing air traffic. Terminal 3 which opened 14 October 2008 is the world's largest terminal. To make things even better the new airport at Jebel Ali will give huge capacity. Visas are needed for some countries and exempt for others. Do check before you arrive if you are exempt.

By Car
Dubai 's only international road border is with Oman at Al Wajajah.

Dubai is a trading hub for dhows and is technically possible to reach Dubai on a Dhow and has to be arranged with the dhow owners.
