Recently I got a chance to visit Yas Island, which is a perfect place to go with family or friends, is a man-made island. Yas Island, located 20km off the coast of Abu Dhabi, occupies total land area of 25 km2. You can simply go there by car, plane or boat.
Yas Island is famous for so many attractions among them YAS MARINA CIRCUIT is for motorsport fans. The Yas Marina Circuit is one of Abu Dhabi’s most iconic venues. It is specifically to host the Formula 1 Grand Prix. The circuit has 5 main stands for spectators, so that they should not miss any action happening on the track. Visitors can enjoy the race by viewing it through Abu Dhabi hill. As grand prix will return to Yas marina circuit at the end of the year, so do you think track is closed until the end of the year. Then cheer up because the circuit is still used for number of ways, specially for its weekly events and other track day packages are available as well, including ‘Driver Experiences’, ‘Passenger Experiences’, ‘Private Driving Tuition’ programs and ‘Racing License Courses’ and beside that every Tuesday the track is open for public ( for free) to walk and jog.
Another attractive place of Yas Island is FERRARI WORLD, first Ferrari-branded theme park in Abu Dhabi, has biggest Ferrari store and number of dining options. Once you get under the red big roof, you will love to see the world’s biggest roller coaster and other rides, many Italian restaurants, and of course Ferrari store. Ferrari world is the leading tourist attraction. The main reason for attraction is its red roof, which is a Ferrari badge sign. This indoor Ferrari theme park has the world’s fastest roller coaster known as formula rossa.
