I plan to visit to Dubai for 2-3 months to find out more about the city and seek business ventures. I plan to rent apartment or room in somewhere in Marina. Not sure thou... My question is simple. Does a white-collar businessman need a car in Dubai. How concentrated is Dubai? My experience from other metropoles, such as New York and London, is that car is more trouble than good. I don't want to rush in buying or leasing a car either... Can you possibly move around with taxis and how far is that Dubai Metro project?
