    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Listen to the story of Dubai while you ride its metro. You’ll find out how its rapid development began, and chart the course of its growth into the global city you see today.

    Most of our journey is on an elevated railway, and you can gaze up from your seat at some of Dubai’s newest, most extravagant towers. But we’ll also pass by some of its oldest buildings, which were once surrounded by desert sands. Along the way, we’ll uncover Dubai’s more distant past, as well as its cultural roots.

    The journey from DXB Terminal 3 to the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Mall takes 24 minutes.
