Looking on google maps it looks as if the Atlantis on the Palm Island is approx 25 miles from Port Rashid in a straight line up Jumeirah road. We will be on a cruise and will have a limited time to get from the ship up to the Marina (for the evening fountain/light show) which is near to the Palm as I see. What would be the approximate cost and time to travel mid afternoon in a taxi from Port Rashid to the Palm/Marina area?
I'm trying to get an idea of distances, as a first time visitor it looks to me that distances are greater than I at first thought. When people are advised to "take a taxi" makes me think we wont be able to do our usual "walk everywhere possible" thing here. It will be early February so the weather should be more temperate then.
Thanks in anticipation
