“Something magical”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

It is probably the overwhelming architecture and huge high rise buildings that dwarf you on both sides of the road that makes walking down sheik zayed road something magical and amazing, especially on a night time. I have been to Dubai many times over the years and it has always took my breath away when I see the new additions each time. I never tire of this place.

“Surprised this is an attraction”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

No where else in the world would a highway be so interesting. M25 or M1? I don't think so. However this is Dubai and even a highway can be a good afternoon out. You will of course need a car. Alternatively take the Metro from Trade Centre all the way down to Jebel Ali. Some amazing views and if you like photography take your camera early morning, late afternoon or evening and snap away. (pull over at one of the many junctions).

You really can see all of Dubai from SZR so well worth a trip and cruise along and check out the high rise. Avoid rush hour obviously. A good time is Friday morning.

“Fast paced modern highway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

If you are driving from Abu Dhabi to Dubai, you will travel along this very modern highway. It is very fast paced and it is easy to miss your exits so be careful! If you are only visiting Dubai, you might come this way if you are going to Dubai or Emirates Mall, or some of the five star hotels that line its sides. Very impressive!

“High rise and more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

This a long road that has fascinating high rise buildings on both side of the road. Most buildings are hotels and hotel apartments with resturants and coffee shops along the way. If is a nice place to stay and very pleasant to walk along in the evening when the temperature cools down a bit. This road has an easy access to the Metro and also to the streets adjacent to it.
