It's best to travel when it is not rush hour. This is the best route to move from Dubai to Abu Dhabi, and to other parts of the city. There are many lanes and a great way to move throughout the city. You can take it out to see the dunes as well. The speed limit does not seem to... More

It is well maintained and spacious with multiple lanes...most of the cars drive here at around 100+ km per... More

That's not an attraction for sure. It is more like the main road in the modern city with crazy skyscrapers. This road takes you into the journey of a city rising up fast and wild with no chance for taking your breath. I always felt that there is a psycho competition between the two sides of the road on who... More

Ok it's a major arterial road and accidents happen. Enjoy the scenery along the way, but be careful of other drivers who can suddenly dart across lanes for the exits. The lanes on this highway are also very narrow, so extra care is needed. Not the finest of the urban planning, but I guess with Dubai demand is exceeding supply,... More

While Sh Zayed Road is just a highway that goes deep into Dubai, it is an important throughway which connects Dubai with Abu Dhabi, as well as with many of the new developments in Dubai that have take place along the coast.

It is probably the overwhelming architecture and huge high rise buildings that dwarf you on both sides of the road that makes walking down sheik zayed road something magical and amazing, especially on a night time. I have been to Dubai many times over the years and it has always took my breath away when I see the new additions... More
