Sheikh Zayed Road is "everywhere" so you will use it when you rent e car in Dubai. The only problem is the huge traffic jams in the evenings and attention to speed cameras. The rest is great.

Poorly designed mainlydue to the lack of proper planning. The population and traffic exceeded the forecast, resulting in monumental traffic jams most of the time.The number of available lanes is reduced over a very short distance and poorly indicated, resulting in bottle necks. This is exacerbated by the poorly skilled and safety ignorant drivers who push their way regardless. An... More

This road is the backbone of Dubai. We took the City Sightseeing bus which runs along here and marvelled at the modern architecture that dominates the landscape. Easy to take photos on the move which is good as walking due to heat and length is prohibitive to most. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

This is the main artery through Dubai, it can get a little congested at certain times of the day. All the main locations are accessed from this black top one way or another

This is the road that makes Dubai what it is. It's larger than life, longer than anything you can think if and connects pretty much the whole city. But then it is so traffic congested, that you can't enjoy it and stroll on it. There is only so much you can see from a car or take in about the... More
