Traveling on Fours

Staff Writer

A whole new world! Dubai, a city located on the coast of the Persian Gulf, is the most progressive public transportation system in the region and the home to the world’s longest fully automated metro system. The Middle East is not very well known when it comes to modern methods of transportation. Despite the fact that Middle Eastern people use cars, buses, trams, trains and airplanes, they are not as popularly used as in the U.S.

In fact, camels are the popular mode of transportation in the Middle East. According to a historical archive, they were called “the Gift of God” because of their sustenance. Their ability to go through days without food or water, make them incredibly useful in dry cities like this. Because camels can withstand extreme temperatures, they are convenient for travel and for importing and exporting goods.

In the hot Middle Eastern environment, camels are more than suitable as the primary source of transportation.
