Transportation in U.A.E. #2 Bus

My wife and I took a long distance bus heading for Abu Dhabi at Al Ghubaiba terminal.

There were two waiting lines for the bus.
One line was for men, the other was for women and families.

Rear side seats in the bus were for men, front side seats were women.

On our way to Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, we changed buses in Abu Dhabi bus terminal from a long distance bus to a local bus.

Left and below pictures were taken in a local bus.

Of course, seat area was divided by passengers' gender.

Transportation in U.A.E. #1 Subway / Metro

Subway, taxi, public bus, tourists' bus, boat and ship are ways of transportation systems in Dubai city.

Among them, I guess, subway is the easiest way of moving between east and west. When you go north or south, you have to take a taxi.

Every subway train has a car or area only for women and children.

The rule is strictly kept by showing signs, fines table posting stations, metro staff inspections and citizens' moral.

We happened to saw a guy who entered the restricted car was arrested by a metro officer and he was pulled out of the car at the next station.

Some Japanese train company has the same rules, though the rules are far lenient than that of U.A.E.

We Visit Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

It is very, veeeeeery hot day today. Even this hot, people here in the United Arab Emirates say it is usual temperature in summer days here.

We visited Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi today.
Abu Dhabi is the capital and the second most populous city of U.A.E.

The Mosque was so beautiful that I cannot explain enough of it.
Just, it's awesome art work.
