Make sure you buckle up and have you wits about you when driving along this road. Drivers seem to think it's a Formula 1 circuit - overtaking, undertaking, zig zagging across the 6 lane motorway and driving so close behind you they could read your text messages. The middle lane is the safest, but be prepared to be flashed, cut-up... More

Most countries have major thoroughfares that traverses the country, the state, the province,etc. Germany has the A8 Autobahn. The United Kingdom has the M20 Motorway, and the United States has its vast interstate network. The United Arab Emirates has the Sheikh Zayed Road or E11. It links the Emirate of Dubai to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. It crosses most... More

Its an attraction if you've been locked up for 80 years. Its hard to tell if driver's are required to pass driving tests, speed limits apply or a highway code even exists. The best way to arrive unscathed is via marked cabs. Who walks down Sheikh Zayyed road and why?

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

Sheikh Zayed Road is the longest road in Dubai...right from Jebel Ali Free Zone to the airport....in view of the buildings which have come up in the recent five to ten years....you will see skylines rising and falling as you drive.... 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
