It might seem strange to have a highway on a list of sites one must see while in Dubai, but bear with us. Sheik Zayed Road is part of the “E 11” highway, which is the longest road in the United Arab Emirates. When it passes through Dubai, it is known as “Sheik Zayed Road”. So why is it on this list of must see sites? Because it is along this highway that most of Dubai’s skyscrapers are built. If one is visiting Dubai then must drive down this stretch of road, especially at night. It was one of the most beautiful views in the city.
Whether it be snow skiing in the middle of the Arabian desert, man made islands, or just all out displays of extravagant wealth, Dubai is a region teeming with luxury. Its nightlife is second to none, with the New York Times listing it as one of the greatest party cities in not just the Middle East, but the world. If opulence is what one seeks then one will not fail if they travel to Dubai.
