UAE is a modern and technologically advanced country and one of the most popular tourist destinations of all times. It is visited by people from all over the world, and therefore is very well connected to the rest of the world by air. The neighboring countries of UAE are connected to it by roads as well, although the network is not very widespread. The UAE government is planning to construct and operate a rail network connecting some of the neighboring countries to UAE. This is expected to soon be available for tourists and locals. If you are wondering how to Reach UAE from Mumbai, the best way to get to UAE from Mumbai is, of course, by air because the fares are quite cheap and the duration of the flight is also low enough to give travelers more time to explore the country to their heart’s content.
By Air: The primary international airports of UAE include the Dubai International Airport and the Abu Dhabi International Airport. There are other international airports here as well such as Sharjah International Airport, but comparatively it is less well connected that the other two. If coming from Mumbai, then The Mumbai International Airport offers regular flights to Dubai, Sharjah as well as Abu Dhabi, which last for nearly three to four hours, if one chooses a non-stop non-connecting flight. It can take nearly 18 hours to reach if one chooses a connecting flight, which might have long stopovers at different locations.
By Train: There are currently no trains that take you from Mumbai to UAE, since neither India’s nor UAE’s rail network is sophisticated enough to connect to far off destinations outside of the country. If one is uncomfortable about traveling to UAE in a plane, then the best way is to try to get there by road. This might take a traveler way longer than taking a flight, nearly 2 days of driving and stopping, as well as hauling the vehicle on to numerous ferries to cross the sea. Needless to mention, one would also have to get visas from other countries that would have to be crossed in order to get to the UAE from Mumbai. Going by train to UAE from Mumbai is not a possibility as of now.
By Road: There are no roads that would take a traveler directly to UAE, but if one is adamant enough, there are ways to reach the UAE without taking a flight. From Mumbai, the traveler would have to first reach Delhi. On reaching Delhi, the traveler would have to drive on various National Highways of India, Pakistan and Saudi Arab to reach Abu Dhabi. Going by road is not at all advisable, since it is an extremely costly and tiring method and travelers would need separate visas and authorizations for every country that they cross.
