Sheikh Zayed Road

One of the main Road in Dubai city. A lot of good hotels, malls, covered supermarkets, electronic and souvenier shops. A good place to drive through, but even in February too hot.

Thank goodness the Sheikh Zayed Road has something like 12 lanes in places so there's normally an escape route from the swerving tailgaters in their enormous Nissan Patrol 4x4s or their tricked out Mercs. Truly some of the worst driving in the world! Oh, and they like to place road signs either adjacent to or even after the exit you... More

What a fantastic road to see all the fancy high end cars going various speeds across the six lanes of one way traffic. Careful for the video radar !!
