Meydan hotel is bit far from the city but once you reach there & visit Racecourse, you will feel that its worth visiting this place. Make sure you have a car with you as getting taxi is very difficult task specially after late evening.

Meydan Racecourse is an impressive place to visit, especially for watching races which start from November (planning available on http://www.dubaiworldcup.com/visit/calendar/racing-calendar). Outside for the worldcup, there are good seatting areas accessible for free (but you may choose to indulge yourself a nice diner with front view).

It was interesting to see how everybody were so pumped up for the race. The facility was great, you could buy food downstairs. There were big screens so you could keep track on the horses and of course you can make bets with your friends/loved ones/family. But people were giving us strange looks which made me feel like we weren't... More

Totally over the top - in a fun way! You won't believe your eyes at the size and the features of this place. Worth a visit just to stroll around and gaze. Don't miss the groovy lifts!

Very well organized with ample parking and seating available. Clear views of the races with big screens providing all details. The lounge offers dining and up close viewing opportunities. Well worth a visit or two just for the experience and the lovely winter weather.

We've been 3 or 4 times including the Dubai World Cup (wouldn't recommend going to this!) on an average race night this is great fun, bit weird not having bookies which can make the racing crowd a bit more subdued, but good value for money and for a night out with friends

We were 4 girls who went for the Lady Gaga concert on 10th Sept, ;14. Loved the place. The seats were lit up in florescent colors and looked amazing at night. Everything was comfortable and the rest rooms were clean even though the event attracted more than 50000 guests minimum.
