Default Dubai and Abu Dhabi

Hey guys,Ill be in Dubai by January end.I would like to know from the members who stay or who have visited Dubai what are all the good places to see there?Also since I am a big fan of exotic cars,where can I spot veyrons,ferraris,lambos,Zondas....etc???Where do I have a good chance of spotting them?Please give your suggestions.

Also is there any place where sheikhs display their cars?Like a car museum or something?

Also which places are all the exotic car showrooms in Abu Dhabi or Dubai?

Cheers!

Bro I am in Dubai right now and I must warn you that it is not a place for bhpinas. You go bonkers at the risk of offending your hosts as you see the cars zipping past all around you. You just have to stand at any given road and see all these beauties zipping past. Ill upload a detailed report and some pictures by 6th January so you will have a latest update on the conditions here.

dont forget the EXOTIC cars shop when you are in Sheik Zayed road. They do display most of the Exotics, but i doubt the Veyron and the Pagani.
You can also have a tour through the Awir auto market. Cheers.

Go to Mall of Emirates (Kempinski Hotel entrance) Taxi Stand and you'll see pretty much everything you could dream of seeing, and maybe some stuff you didn't even know existed. It's worthwhile to make your way there Friday night and sit with your camera and a bowl to collect the drool.

Go to the Mall of Emirates VIP parking. All kinds of exotics. Any time of the day and you won't be disappointed. Guaranteed!

Also, there's a road in Dubai that has a long line of car and bike showrooms. Every single brand that you can think of! I don't know what it's called but if you ask someone there, I'm sure they'll tell you
