Lose yourself on Yas Island: Abu Dhabi's star attraction, an easily access by a 20 minute car journey from Abu Dhabi International Airport.

The most anticipated Formula 1™ race of the year falls every November and is hosted by the Yas Marina Street Circuit. Visit for the race itself and get front row seats in the stands or watch from the comfort of your room at the iconic Yas Viceroy Hotel. Or visit during the rest of the year to walk, drive or even cycle the circuit yourself!

In view from the tarmac of the race track is the impressive architecture of Ferrari™ World Abu Dhabi. Open daily betwenn 11am and 8pm this vast indoor theme park features rides suited for everyone, from the fastest ride in the world, Formula Rossa, to driving schools for children! 

Or for outdoor adventure spend a day at  one of Arabia's best water parks, Yas Waterworld. Try surfing in the wave pools or if you dare, try the Jebel Drop - a near vertical water slide not for the faint hearted!

If you fancy a spot of retail therapy, head to Yas Mall, the Emirates' largest shopping centre, before hitting the boardwalk for an evening stroll while overlooking the marina and the multitude of luxury yachts moored there. What more could you want?
