Here’s how to reach Atlantis, The Palm from Dubai International Airport (DXB).
Dubai authorities have put many things such as transport means (the metro, the tram, the bus and the taxi) as well as transport apps in place to see that both commuters and visitors get around Dubai with relative ease. There’re different ways one can get to Atlantis from the Dubai International Airport and these are the crux of these article. Before we lurch in, you should know that, as Rome2Rio.com puts it, the distance between Dubai Airport (DXB) and Atlantis, The Palm is 28 km, while the road distance is 36.8 km.
Taxi is run in Dubai by a corporation called Dubai Taxi Corporation. All legal taxis in Dubai have the cream-painted body, their roofs boasting different colors (green, blue, red, orange, yellow, pink and black). Getting to Atlantis from the airport is quite easy given that the Atlantis, The Palm is notable. How is that? When traveling in Dubai, your destination is determined by a nearby landmark. So that if you’re not sure of the exact location, you may need your host to guide the driver. But in this case, your destination itself is a landmark.
So, how do you get to Atlantis, The Palm from Dubai International Airport? At the airport as with other notable places such as major shopping malls in Dubai, there’re taxi ranks where you can get a taxi. At the airport, these ranks can be found at the airport’s Terminals (1, 2 and 3). To get to a rank, follow the signs to the official taxi rank (You may go to Terminal1).
If you can’t follow the signs, asking a member of the “May I Help You” team may help. There’re always taxis at the ranks waiting to serve you. There’s the AED 25 flat charge getting run in a taxi from the airport. Further, each kilometer you travel in the taxi will cost you AED 1.96. So, the total kilometers you covered times AED 1.96 plus AED 25 will be your total fare (total kilometers covered x AED 1.96 + AED 25). And your journey should take about 30 minutes, if the taxi were fast enough.
When you get into the taxi, tell the driver your destination. That’d be it. If you’re a woman and would have a problem being conveyed by a man, you may sit at the back seat or take the Ladies’ Taxi. You should learn more about Dubai taxi. It’s requisite.
