From our hotel in Deira, we picked up our bags, crossed the Dubai Creek by dhow (10 cents), and from there it was about a 15 minute walk to the bus station. The bus station was easy to figure out (everyone speaks English, and everything is clearly labelled) and we were soon on the next bus to Abu Dhabi, which seem to leave all the time.
Arriving in Abu Dhabi, we were dropped off at a bus station about 30 minutes out of town. We decided to take a taxi to our hotel, since it was late and we didn’t want to deal with a local bus. Besides, taxis are quite affordable. However, finding a taxi driver that knew his way to our hotel proved very difficult. They obviously were not used to tourists. After about 5 taxis, we finally found one who knew where our hotel was.
