You might have heard shocking stories about traffic and congestion in Dubai. The situation is supposed to improve with the introduction of the Dubai metro, but for the time being, it has not changed much. The good news is that you will not have any trouble with car parking. It is well organized and abundantly available.
You will not have difficulty finding road side spots to park or paid car parks. The cost per hour is 1 Dhs in less crowded areas and 2 Dhs in places with more vehicles and busier traffic. Usually, the paid hours are from 1 to 4 in the afternoon, but it has become increasingly common for them to be extended to 9 pm. Paid parking applies on Fridays and public holidays as well.
