Expats moving to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, or one of the other emirates might have to get used to the crazy traffic. It’s important to know which traffic rules to pay attention to, but also to employ defensive driving techniques — UAE nationals tend to have unsafe driving practices.
For some people, the UAE is “famous” for its many road accidents. However, the number has been steadily decreasing over the past years. This shouldn’t hold you back from driving your car though; the road network is very good. A good alternative in case you don’t want to drive a car is the public transportation network: there are several options to choose from if you want to travel around. When you arrive in the UAE, it’ll most likely be by plane. The busiest airport in the world is Dubai International Airport, which is a whole experience on its own. However, you can also fly to other airports in the UAE.
