This road is one of the oldest and main road of Dubai.The beauty of the road is because of the High rise Buildings on both sides.The Facade work and the glass give a very beautiful colour combination at dawn, day and in sunset light.At night the story is different in artificial light. This is a good place for photographers to... More

This is Dubai's main drag and is impressive as you go through the central business district at 2am after your flight from the UK. The lights of this areas are undoubtably impressive. At busier ties you will be stuck in traffic or else proceeding with taxis showing little regard for lane discipline or speed limits. If you are in one... More

Some years ago all of the high rise buildings in Dubai lined Sheikh Zayed Road. In recent times, skyscrapers have appeared all over the city, but Sheikh Zayed Road is still impressive.

Lots of traffic and noisy but the true nerve of Dubai. I would not drive there myself but I surely enjoy a ride in the taxi instead.

A major road that takes you through the stretch of skyscrapers in Dubai, worth doing for tourists when it's not rush hour. Alternatively you can take the Red line on the Dubai metro which runs parallel to Sheikh Zayed Road.

Take the metro or a taxi to experience Sheikh Zayed road, the artery of (new) Dubai, stretching from the Marina to the Creek. If landing at Al Maktoum (DWC), ask the taxi driver to prefer this route (not longer, but traffic is heavier).

This is a whacky races affair, no respect from any drivers, it's a pure dog fight on four wheels with idiots with death wishes. My advise is to take a taxi and close eyes until you get to your destiny, sorry destination.
