This can be one busy road and traffic can be a nightmare. Best way to see it is from the Metro. Plenty to admire.

The best way to explore Dubai is taking the first wagon of metro red line and look in front to see the superlong wavy metro rails surrounded by skyscrapers.

Sheikh zayed road has in recent years become the lifeline of Dubai since Dubai's rapid expansion southwards towards Abu Dhabi It's the busiest thoroughfare connecting business and commercial areas to the more residential areas of Dubai If you are in Dubai use the red line metro from bur juman upto ibn batutta mall to see this place in full

I was surprised to see this road as an attraction but there you go. I would strongly recommend someone else driving on this 8 lane carriageway. Make sure you wear your seat belt. Great views of the iconic buildings along the bare knuckle ride. Try and stay away from peak hour as the place is just a car park nobody... More

It's great to drive down this highway and see all of the skyscrapers. A testament to what oil money can do. Unfortunately, there is no easy access on and off. There is no place to take a good photo. It's a drive through at best.
