Can some­one teach the taxi driv­ers where to go

7 Days in Dubai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

To­day I had a very im­por­tant meet­ing (for me). So I take a taxi and tell him to go to Dubai Aca­demic City, food court, Star­bucks (this is how they ex­plained in Star­bucks). So when we reach the taxi driver tries to find the food court, asks peo­ple, no one knows, and he doesn’t know him­self. Then I see an ad about con­struc­tion in Sil­i­con Oa­sis. I ask the driver, are we in Aca­demic city for sure? He says, of course, mam, this is Aca­demic City but no one knows the food court. He keeps tak­ing me around Aca­demic City for Dhs63. Af­ter call­ing Star­bucks and hear­ing from them that I am in a wrong place, I de­cide to go out of the taxi. In the street a man tells me that it is Sil­i­con Oa­sis. So imag­ine my anger. Not only did I miss my meet­ing, now I have to find a way to come back home. This is not the first time Dubai taxi driv­ers don’t know the lo­ca­tion. Can some­one teach them lo­ca­tions in Dubai or just put GPS in the taxis? Nona, Dubai
