“Superb ride on this road”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

This road welcomes u with beautiful tall building on its both sides. most of the videos/movies of Dubai will show this road while introducing Dubai. the metro runs parallel to this 8/10 lane road. This road connects dubai to abu dhabi. There are many tourist attractions along this road.

“The artery of Dubai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

Dubai has a main street but I can not call it as an attraction. However, the heart and soul of Dubai can be reached from this road, from the Souks in Deira to the Ibn Battuta Mall just south of the Marina.

There are many toll gates with cameras on this road charging 4 AED each pass as a "Salik" fee.
You can take the metro all the way down along this road.

“Wow a street”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Ok, it's a street, where you can drive on with your car. I don't know why this should be an attraction, maybe because Dubai lacks a bit of real attractions. So as a street it does what it should, but it's definitively not something you need to see, unless you have never seen a paved road before.

“Watch for All the SPEED CAMERAS”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

We rented a car and no one told us about all the cameras and crazy drivers lol. The gas station lines were horrible. Grab c a taxi, drink some wine and let someone else drive. Your do much better off. The Road is a road.

“Incredible !!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

It's just incredible what they did with the dessert.
The sky scrapers have each his own design .
Staying at Millennium Plaza hotel I enjoyed evening walks on the boulevard.
I imagine that during the summer heat you can't do this , but in November it was just an amazing experience.
