Dubai's infrastructure is amazing without a single pothole in a road. It can be confusing to navigate some of the exits, and the signage isn't always clear. The drivers can be nutty, especially at night going well above a safe speed. However, there are several lanes, and they are always well maintained.

We used the road to travel Bur Dubai/Diera to Marina area. Very nicely done, lined on both the sides by hotels and restaurants.

If you consider this an attraction, then it is a huge highway that is the pulse of downtown Dubai. From here you can see many high end autos pass by.

Main road, which is all the time very crowded and rush time very very rush. Metro going next to road start to end... This doesn't make an exception from all the things in Dubai - everything's gotta be something bigger and better than anywhere else.. :) Right time, its fastet way...

This is one of the important roads in Dubai that runs through Dubai to Sharjah and Abu Dhabi as far as I understand. During peak hours it gets crowded though.

The central road running along the coast in Dubai - runs pretty much parallel to the MTR and full of decent hotels. Hard to rate in truth.

I'm not sure I'd call it an attraction as such. But what an amazing street. We stayed at Chelsea Tower with a room high up overlooking SZR. Incredible, the view from the balcony was quite literally breath taking/terrifying! If you're not staying on SZR I'd make a point of visiting it, somewhere like Level 43 rooftop bar, just to take...
