Travelling by taxi is generally quick and efficient, but be advised that taxis rarely use meters. Traffic conditions can affect journey times. For example, getting from the city to the airport takes 20 minutes or 45 minutes in rush hour. It is not necessary to tip taxis. The workweek runs from Sunday to Thursday. Office hours vary by sector, with private sector firms generally keeping 9am to 5pm business hours and government offices open from 7.30am to 2pm, outside of Ramadan, when hours are reduced or changed.
