I was advised that this is the place to be, and yes you will see the skyscrapers, but other than that it's just a highway. I should have known better than to stay at a hotel off a highway, but now I know better. The road is huge and if you want to get to the other side good luck,... More

Can't imagine anyone going to Dubai and not going on this road. I am still amazed about the size of this highway. Was pretty clear over the 10 days I was in Dubai.

A heavily travelled road thru Dubai. Loads of skyscrapers the tallest being Burj Khalifa. Many high end automobile dealers, hotels, and restaurants. If you are in Dubai you will undoubtedly travel this road. Traffic on this road flows pretty good, much better than coming out of downtown Chicago during rush hour.

Whereas you will no doubt travel down this road when visiting Dubai (and the metro runs alongside it), it is just another (very busy) road, not a tourist destination.

This is the main road of Dubai. You cant walk or cycle. The highway runs parallel to the coastline from Trade Centre Roundabout to the Jebel Ali, border with the emirate of Abu Dhabi. You get to see Emirates tower, the old world trade center building and the Majestic Burj Khalifa from this road.

Wonderful view of amazing architecture. Brilliantly lit at night, worth just driving up and down on it.
