This is the most famous road in Dubai and leads all the way to Abu Dhabi. About 5 lanes of fast moving traffic in each direction. The dubai metro runs along this road too.

Everything about the UAE is simply awful. However, if you like tailgating, bored rich kids who would happily have you arrested and put in jail any slight of hand insult then by all means head on over to this well disguised dump.

Most of the time it is not crowded. you can enjoy the great skyscrapers on its side. be aware of speed cameras because they easily get you, specially if you rent a car. you need to pay tax as well.

I have visited many beautiful cities of the world but I will never forget my first drive along Sheik Zayed Road.I find it to be the most exciting and spectacular road I have ever travelled down and I have repeated the experience on many trips to Dubai. It is a 12-lane -- at some points 14- lane -- highway stretching... More

A long highway lined with numerous tall buildings, all with its own unique identity and beautiful architecture. A masterpiece skyline spanning 20 years. Beautiful!

It's a huge road which runs through the heart of Dubai. Almost all of Dubai's world famous skyline dotting buildings are located here. Looks fabulous at night. You can travel by car on it, or take the Metro which runs parallel to it.

If you are travelling alone, or on a bachelor trip, then hire a car and travel from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. You will get some lip smacking food on side of the road, american style. You will find clubs and pubs beside this road, a must visit place at night.

Having lived in Dubai for 25 years I have this road grow from a simple dual carriage way with a hedge in the middle, plus one of, if not the, most dangerous road in the world (by accidents and deaths caused) to the mega highway it is today. It was made a toll road a few years ago, laughable as... More
