There is a station at Terminal 3 and you can travel up to Nakeel Harbour.You can buy a metro card known as nol card at the airport for AED20.The card has got a ticket value of AED14 and this entitles you to unlimited travel for that day on metro and bus.If you want unlimited travel the next day you can top up the card for AED14 at the machines located all over the Dubai.

Thanks for your reply, I see there are different classes on the metro would we go as silver and how long would it take approx from Diera City Shopping Centre to the end of the line and back again. Also do you know of any reasonable prices hotels close to Diera Shopping Centre.

There is also a Gold class in the Metro where the prices are double.I do not think there is any need to travel in the Gold class.The approx time taken for travel from Deira City Centre(DCC) to the last station Nakheel Harbour is 45 minutes.

Reasonably priced hotels near DCC are Ibis(AED250),City Seasons(AED432),Dusit Princess(AED480) and Novotel(AED550).All these are 3 star hotels.

Here and there

Please be aware that you can't take suitcases on the metro if you were intending to get straight on at the airport. If you have suitcases you will need to go to the hotel first to drop them off.

Hmmm, interesting... Does the state of affairs really so strictly? And what about tourist's bag (not suitcase, but also BIG enough)? Also prohibited?
