  • Sell you it as New York's Fifth Avenue is... different. This is impressive, many lanes of each side. Is also the Avenue of entry to the city. At peaks times traffic is hellish and is advancing very slowly. Also runs it the metro red line. It passes through all the modern area of Dubai. It is worth to walk it.
