    how can i go with mono rail from dubai to abu dhabi?

    Dubai Mono is only partially complete and will not reach Abu Dhabi for a couple of years, if at all given their financial woes. Best to rent a car and drive - it's an easy hour and a half drive to AD, once you safely get through Sheik Zaid Road ! over 9 years ago

    How do I get from Perth to Boddington using public transport?

    Easy answer is to log onto transperth.com.au They have an interactive webpage where you tell them where you want to go and from where, and it works it out for you explaining whatever types of transport are needed and the times etc. Worth a look. Cheers Jeremy almost 10 years ago

    Can you suggest nice, well located accommodation for a 2 night stopover?

    Agree with an0 - try Arabian Park Hotel. It's well located next to the 'museum' which is interesting in itself. however, try walking a few metres to the waterfront and experience what must be the original Dubai waterfront with dhows discharging or taking on cargo as they did many years ago. Most will be going across the water to Iran and Bangladesh which is interesting. A taste of the real Middle East - troubles or not, trade still goes on as it did years ago. over 10 years ago

    Is the Monorail up and running in Dubai and where does it run to and from

    Monorail up and running but only from Palms to mainland, however, if you're looking at getting around Dubai, use the cabs. They are inexpensive, reliable and cheap - it's your best option. Monorail will take months more to be efficient and run to Jumeria and Sheik Zaid Road where it is needed. over 10 years ago

    Are there any good winter festivals or events or such around July?

    Firstly, remember it's cool/cold in Perth in July BUT there is still loads to see and do. Take a walk on Cottesloe Beach (it'll probably be sunny) and experience the waves and great sand, try a day trip to Rotto when it'll be less busy than usual. The bays are quite fantastic and special, a bit like the Greek Islands (yes I know, but it's true) Check out kings Park in the winter - it's really neat in the rain ! Above all, don't sit in your hotel room if it's cool, get out there and experience Perth's environs - look at the visitors guide and pick something different ! over 10 years ago

    is there anything to do in perth?

    Greg - loads to do especially if you like wine ! Take a trip out to the Swan Valley (40 mins out of Perth CBD) where you will find scores of wineries, most of them excellent quality, and a growing number providing New Oz cuisine. It's also a great spot to just unwind with good scenery. You should also sample down south in Margaret River, same thing only bigger, better and with the famous surf beaches - it's really world class. Perth itself has Kings Park which warrants a whole day of walking, if you're into all that, through the numerous tracks plus there are great views of the City, Swan river and surrounds. Try a trip down Stirling Hwy to Cottesloe and the beach for some fish and chips to watch the sun setting over the Indian Ocean - Perthites particularly like this one because it's so good (before of after a beer at one of the local pubs) ! over 10 years ago
