Dubai Metro: Al Jafiliya & Mall of Emirates Stations
The Al Jafiliya Station is right across Dubai’s Department of Naturalization and Residency, where we went a few days ago to renew Mom’s residence visa.
The stations are designed to look like sea shells.
For a moment, I thought I was inside the airport! Then I saw the “To Trains” sign.
More of the “sea shell” effect.
We traveled Gold Class on our first trip. You pay extra for two things: comfortable seats and front view (since there is no driver, you get to sit right infront)
The Silver or Standard Class, which I personally think is much more fun than the Gold Class. (Picture taken by cellphone)

The interior of the Mall of Emirates Station: this was around 2 pm on a working day, hence the peace and quiet.
Your posts about places in Dubai never fail to astound me. 🙂 Masha Allah.
I hope you had a great Eid, Nadia. Take care.
Now, I hope Dubai Government should acknowledge your efforts to keep Dubai always glowing despite recession 🙂
Looks very … Dubai-ish! Can’t wait to visit iA. It does look like the Metro is going to be a success.
1. How do they prevent a silver ticket holder from sitting in the gold class?
2. Never been inside the Burj al Arab, does it cost to visit?
It looks awesome! Trust Dubai to come up with a lavish metro, LOL.
Great pictures as always, nads!
ma shaa Allah it is too beautiful for a SUBWAY station yeesh!
Great pictures Nadia,
The view is stunning!
You’re lucky to live in such a beautiful place, not that the UK isn’t beautiful, but yeah ya know.
Masha Allah it’s soooooo beautiful 😀
We had a new “metro” ourselves here in Vancouver. Actually it is an extension to the current metro (called Skytrain), and was made in preparation for the Winter Olympics in February 2010.
I just wrote a post on this too 🙂
WOW! Masha’Allah! That is so impressive! I would ride it every day if I were you 😀
Is the price diff between gold and silver class big?
Wow, that is sure sparkly and not a person in sight! My brother loves trains he would probably just got to Dubai to get on it lol 😀
Thanks for the wonderful pics
wow.. what stations yaar…
Dubai vs Doha… debate tilted in favour of Dubai after this! lol
Ooh, what a lovely journey through the metro! Hopefully I’ll be able to experience it for myself soon.
