After visiting Europe and USA we understand the roads in Dubai are truly super!! This main road in Dubai shows the vision of the leaders for building such a fine highway and with an unbelievable Smart toll collection system Salik There are too many radars but I guess it keeps the road safer and the fines pay for the maintenance...

This is a main road into Dubai centre. It is lined by sky scrapers and is heavy with traffic day and nigh. Lots of cheap eateries including all the usual international cafe and burger places. The best way down it is on the Metro which is excellent.

The highway connects Dubai with Abu Dhabi. It is very fast except peak hours. It is a very nice view to the Dubai Skyline. As there are many one-way roads, it is important to have an updated gps in the car.

Stayed in the Crowne Plaza along Sheikh Zayed. It offers easy access to the Metro as it pretty much goes above the street. Also a lot of taxis are available to take you out to the harder to reach places.
