A rather dangerous road where speeding is common and drivers often cut across multiple lanes without indicating. Frequently jammed up due to serious accidents or rush hour traffic. It would appear that some of the road users never held a driving licence in their home countries.

Flanked by skyscrapers on either side of the multilane highway that leads from Dubai city to Jumeirah and then continues to Abu Dhabi...this road is refreshing & rejuvenating. The mere grandeur of the road complete with fly overs, bridges for exit ways, pleasing greener and restaurants & star hotel chains galore transports you to a plush world. The multilane road... More

Sheikh Zayed is one of the largest main road. Nice driving a car among the road, you can see so many high rise building including the biggest and tallest Marriot Hotel the Twin Tower of Marriot Hotel with 110 stories.

A drive along Sheikh Zayed road gives a stunning view of the entire city of Dubai and the Dubai skyline. Do try to drive around this road after sunset to see the amazingly lit sky scrapers.

What can you review about a road? Well for one, the shear size of it and the amount of traffic on it 24/7. I always thought that Bangkok's roads were busy all the time, but that is nothing compared to this road. While it is busy, the traffic control (robots, circles etc.) is well spaced out and timed resulting in... More

Yes it's a road but to me it was so much more. The skyline feels like a mix of Las Vegas and Disneyland. The buildings all look familiar. There's a Big Ben lookalike, an Empire State Building wannabe.... It's just fantastic! It feels like this road is the pulse of the city. Stretching for miles and miles it can take... More

Not sure what other reviewers were expecting, it's a huge road. It's only worth walking along in the evening due to the heat in the day. The skyline is the reason to make the trip as it's pretty breathtaking. You'll find hotels, restaurants, pharmacies, supermarkets, hairdressers and a bit of perspective in an otherwise over the top city. I don't... More
