The question is how can a road be an attraction, or deserving of a TA review? It is the main artery in Dubai and has constant traffic. Stop & go in rush hour. The Metro runs alongside it and is a better option than driving or taxis. This road (or the Metro) will take you to all the important places... More

Sheikh Zayad road is an extremely busy highway round the clock but it's better at night and very early in the morning. It's a 12 lane road beautifully lit up at night with skyscrapers dotting both sides. It's a commercial road with numerous offices, shops, malls, hotel brands amongst others represented there. Driving on Sheikh Zayad road could be fun... More

Don't know why this is listed as an attraction. As a road it does the job, it gets you where you are going but that's about it. Probably best not to use it to view the scenery on either side as this is combat driving at it's best so you need to keep your eyes on the road.

It doesn't count an attraction. It is just a highway with tall modern building, hotels, malls on each side. It is not an exiting pleasant walking for a tourist.

I love Sheikh Zayed road, especially at night when its not crowded and you can see beautiful buildings and lights everywhere. If you go to Dubai you will definitely use it for sure, its there main road and connects all Dubai.

Just THE most beautiful highway. It goes to Abu Dhabi. Beautiful Drive. Seriously in Dubai it is the place to be. You would be in the middle of everything. Just stop at the bridge going to Jumeirah and look at SZR. Amazing. Gorgeous. Stunning sunset. Close to the hottest place in Dubai.

A fantastic place to be - tall skyscrapers illuminated after evening is a true spectacle. Got to be a place to visit - at Par with any of the downtowns of the world
