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

Hello all Just avoid the left LAnes and you will be ok. Leave enough space as daily crashes are a normal practice .. If you hate to pay tolls , use the parallel road...

Ok it's a major arterial road and accidents happen. Enjoy the scenery along the way, but be careful of other drivers who can suddenly dart across lanes for the exits. The lanes on this highway are also very narrow, so extra care is needed. Not the finest of the urban planning, but I guess with Dubai demand is exceeding supply,... More

While Sh Zayed Road is just a highway that goes deep into Dubai, it is an important throughway which connects Dubai with Abu Dhabi, as well as with many of the new developments in Dubai that have take place along the coast.

It is probably the overwhelming architecture and huge high rise buildings that dwarf you on both sides of the road that makes walking down sheik zayed road something magical and amazing, especially on a night time. I have been to Dubai many times over the years and it has always took my breath away when I see the new additions... More

No where else in the world would a highway be so interesting. M25 or M1? I don't think so. However this is Dubai and even a highway can be a good afternoon out. You will of course need a car. Alternatively take the Metro from Trade Centre all the way down to Jebel Ali. Some amazing views and if you... More

If you are driving from Abu Dhabi to Dubai, you will travel along this very modern highway. It is very fast paced and it is easy to miss your exits so be careful! If you are only visiting Dubai, you might come this way if you are going to Dubai or Emirates Mall, or some of the five star hotels... More

This a long road that has fascinating high rise buildings on both side of the road. Most buildings are hotels and hotel apartments with resturants and coffee shops along the way. If is a nice place to stay and very pleasant to walk along in the evening when the temperature cools down a bit. This road has an easy access... More
