Stunning track. As a racing fan its akin to a football fan going to Wembley or a golfer playing at St Andrews. Fantastic facilities, outstanding views of the track from anywhere and first class attention to detail. I met one of the Dubai Royal Family Princes whilst there and they couldn't have been any nicer. Although bodyguards were rather scary!

Simply put this was an enormous feat to get a 1km long race stand available in the time they did, when we visited it was only half full, but none the less more impressive. great atmosphere, catering to all budgets.

During the early part of the year the racecourse holds evening 'brunch type' events where you can watch the racing from the elegance of their restaurant on tiered levels so all can see the action. Very expensive to get a table here during the Gold Cup weekend so a great opportunity to eat here. Food good, not brilliant but it's... More

Attended the World Cup and we were impressed with everything about the event and the racecourse. Beautifully designed, amazing views, impeccable service (we were in one of the lower level sections near the finish line). Also took a tour of the racecourse, the stands and the stables a few days later and continued to be impressed. Well worth the trip... More

The grandstand has to be seen to be believed - it is huge! If you think Ascot's is big, this is much bigger! I went on a public holiday to an 'everyday' meeting and the public areas were rammed, as it is free entry. However, for a much more pleasant and refined experience, pay the 150dhms to go in the...

I recently had the pleasure of attending a business function at the Meydan and the whole experience was delightful. Lovely views over Dubai and the Racecourse and the meal and service was wonderful.

We all paid 13oodhs for the vip package at the world cup and must say that it was worth every penny, the views were good and the food and drink was in abundance at the right times, the concert afterwards was also part of the package and great value, not to mention the racing itself (lacks a little atmosphere as...
