I loved this day. It was an amazing experience. Only cost approx £4.00 for general arena. Very close view of the horses and the track. Much more extravagant than any race in England. Saw Michael Owen. The Dubai royal family. And Kylie Minogue closed the show. It was an amazing day.

What an experience for such a great price. We were able to go and get general admission for very cheap. It looks more like a football stadium from the outside than a horse track. If you can go for a race I would recommend it. Only downside is there is not betting allowed at the track.

Had a great time at World Cup. Loved the show and fireworks! Parking was a bit of a hassle, but getting out after was easier than expected.

Overall a great experience and I would definitely return to attend the World Cup again in the future. For people familiar with Dubai you'll be used the shambolic organisation of logistics and the poor communication of information. We booked tickets for the Gallery (around £275 per head). The info pack told us to go to Gate F. When the taxi... More

Meydan is a spectacular horse racing track. Perhaps the best in the world. But as with sporting facilities of this size, it needs the crowds to bring atmosphere and do it justice. Also the absense of betting facilities will reduce the impact to Westerners who are used to this adding to 'the package' of a day at the races.

You could go right up and touch the horses! You get to go down into the jockey's room and out into the winner's circle. Really enjoyed it

It was our second visit to the Tiered Restaurant and just like the first visit the food and service were hard to fault. I recommend a night out, even if you are not a horse racing fan as it is always fun, with a chance to win a few prizes and also the meal is great value for money and... More

We had an enjoyable evening at Meydan racecourse, although regular British race goers who we met there were disappointed at the lack of atmosphere, There is no Gambling in UAE. And this they felt detracted fro their enjoy,net. However, we enjoyed the spectacle of the racing .

2 nights racing whilst we were in Dubai. We had an absolutely fantastic evening on both occasions. Excellent choice of food and drink, brilliant waiters/ waitresses. Good views of the racing if you get a table by the window, however, there is a terrace where you can watch and savour the atmosphere. Great value for a night out.

Fantastic building and course. Whether at the Maydan Hotel for a meal or the tack for the races, the whole atmosphere is astounding. A dinner on the terrace whilst the races are on is a great experience. Watch the horses, which are treated like kings and in magnificent condition.
