Hi all im a little stumped... My partner and i are doing a 2 day stop over in Dubai after our 6week Euro adventure...
We are staying on the palm island and want to go to Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi- we know its around $60 AUD entry pp, but we just got a quote for a private car/driver for 9hrs @ $450AUD!! Seems very expensive?
Also what are our other options? Buses? Train? Been researching but not finding much....
Iv read cabs but they seem expensive too and we aren't too keen to sit on a bus as its so hot there and a 1.5-2hr trip i think....? Help. We leave late august.
:) thanks in advance

There are regular coaches between Abu Dhabi and Dubai; I did the journey in January and it took around 1.5 hours. The coaches are air-conditioned and very comfortable so don't worry about the heat. They even came round with free water bottles for everyone. It cost 25 Dirham if I remember rightly and you can buy your ticket on the day.
