There wasn't a day of me driving on this road were I didn't see accidents. This road is notorious in dubai. Driving on this 6/7 lane motorway 100 km hr, suddenly a car moves 4 lanes with no indicator, missing you by inches to get to an exit.

Plus they charge you at every toll pass, and there is several on each direction. Cost 5 dirhams.

Beware, this is not for newbie!

This is where you will see the main sights in their finest glory as it is so overwhelming, the architectures is breath taking & as well as the sheer size of the many skyscrapers! The road(s), tourist attractions are clearly marked out & driving along these road(s) is effortless! Driving at night is a real spectacle as the city takes on a difference appearance with all the dazzling lights.

This is not exactly an attraction, but an infrastructure marvel. The way they've built the 6 lane highway - high speed road to facilitate the travel between the Emirates, is simply magnificent.

Not sure why the Sheik Zayed Road is listed as an attraction it is more of a necessity. It runs from Dubai to Jebel Ali and most of it has 6 lanes either side. Given its size surprisingly it can get very congested. The worst is driving into Dubai on a Thursday evening which is really bad. Running parallel to the road is the Dubai Metro which is a welcome alternative except in the Summer heat.

Mostly this road is showcased on all ads & pictures of Dubai. Surrounded by the tallest skycrapers inclusive of Burk Khalifa. You really cannot stop in between the road since its a highway but can take a detour to Dubai mall, WTC or downtown for pictures. The best option to get a good view is through Dubai metro which runs through the street. Popularly also known as Downtown area, has some good uptown options for entertainment & dining.
