New Guinness World Records for Dubai

Dubai Metro

In Dubai, traffic is now lesser than congested as before. This is because most of the commuters are now using the new 23 km Green Line Metro which opened last Saturday (September 10, 2011) to the public. The Dubai Metro entered the Guinness World Records as the longest automated driver-less Metro in the world with a total length of 75 km.

According to a Gulf News article “Dubai Metro costs Dh29.5 billion and the next step is the completion of the Al Sufouh Tram, which is set to open in November 2014 at a cost of Dh3.45 billion,” said Mattar Al Tayer, Roads and Transport Authority chief. Dubai, which was losing Dh4.6 billion per year due to traffic congestion until 2007, has saved Dh35.7 billion in time and fuel due to RTA projects costing Dh60 billion.”

Not only the local residents of Dubai benefit on this new facility but also added attraction to business and tourist. Most of the tourist enjoyed the city more due to lesser travel time specially on the road during peak hours.

Henna Paint

On yourDubai city tour, you will notice many women with beautiful designs painted on their feet.

It is fun to have henna designs painted on you especially while you’re relaxing on your overnight desert camp in Dubai.Most beauty salons around town will do the henna painting. They let you choose from their extensive collection of intricate designs. The process is usually quite quick, as the henna artists are fast at this craft. Sometimes, complex patterns are made by stencils (available at Dubai souks). These designs last for three weeks.
The practice of henna painting has taken roots throughout Arabia, India and the Mediterranean, and is becoming increasingly trendy in North America as well. This ceremonial painting can be traced back to the 7th Century BC and continues to rise in popularity to this day. Increasingly, street artists in resorts provide henna decoration of varying quality for tourists of both sexes.
Though the times have changed, Dubai has managed to keep even little traditions alive. Dadabhai Travel and
