This amphibious bus, the first in the Middle East, is an opportunity to travel on the roads of the city and the waters of the Persian Gulf.
A unique hybrid of a bus and ship is called Wonder Bus. Externally, the bus looks like regular urban transport, but its secret is that it not only runs ordinary roads, but also floats on the water.
The Wonder Bus travels according to schedule and starts from Burjuman shopping center. For 30 minutes it takes travelers through the streets of the city, then goes to the dock and on the water. This is followed by a half-hour trip on the waters of the Persian Gulf and the Dubai Creek channel. Adults are surprised at such a transformation and children squeal with delight. Along the way passengers (maximum 49) are accompanied by a guide. The tour is presented in English and Arabic.
During the journey, passengers see the emirate's iconic landmarks: the old market, the spice market, the gold market, a village of pearl divers. During the water part of the trip these include cargo ships, yachts, floating restaurants, Dubai Municipality, the twin towers and others. The trip lasts 1 hour.
Not only one can ride a Wonder Bus for fun – it can be rented for a birthday party or meeting with friends.
