    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    This whistle-stop audio tour uses the perfect mode of transport for sightseeing: Dubai’s driverless metro. It’s one of four available on the city’s elevated railway, and one of two that ends at the Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall Metro Station.

    This particular Metro Moments tour takes you across what locals call New Dubai, where you’ll see examples of the city’s ambitious growth from the comfort of your air-conditioned carriage. You will be amazed by the incredible skyline, the feats of architecture and engineering, and the many marvels of modern Dubai.

    There are thriving hubs of business and economy too, and you’ll find out about the multinationals and disruptive startups that make this the region’s commercial centre. You’ll begin your journey at DMCC Metro Station, which was named after the nearby Dubai Multi-Commodities Centre, one of world’s largest markets for physical gold and diamonds.
