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

No where else in the world would a highway be so interesting. M25 or M1? I don't think so. However this is Dubai and even a highway can be a good afternoon out. You will of course need a car. Alternatively take the Metro from Trade Centre all the way down to Jebel Ali. Some amazing views and if you... More

If you are driving from Abu Dhabi to Dubai, you will travel along this very modern highway. It is very fast paced and it is easy to miss your exits so be careful! If you are only visiting Dubai, you might come this way if you are going to Dubai or Emirates Mall, or some of the five star hotels... More

If is a nice place to stay and very pleasant to walk along in the evening when the temperature cools down a bit. This road has an easy access... More

This is one of the most major road way across Dubai. The metro also runs parallel to it. You can see Burj Khalifa and Burj Arab along the way. Mall of Emirates, Dubai Mall are also located near it.

There wasn't a day of me driving on this road were I didn't see accidents. This road is notorious in dubai. Driving on this 6/7 lane motorway 100 km hr, suddenly a car moves 4 lanes with no indicator, missing you by inches to get to an exit. Plus they charge you at every toll pass, and there is several...
