Like a lot of things in Abu Dhabi, Yas Island has its share of superlatives: world’s fastest roller coaster, first roller coaster in a waterpark, only hotel to straddle a Grand Prix Formula1 race track. That probably gives you an accurate picture of this $40 billion sophisticated adult adventure land, but we have to keep it going. It’s that amazing.

You can drive a professional racecar around the F1 Grand Prix track. Surf the largest sheet wave in the world at the futuristic Yas Waterworld. Play golf on one of Golf Magazine’s “Top 10 New International Golf Courses”, Yas Links. Or compete in a Ferrari Spider on the drag-race coaster, on twisting parallel tracks based on real GT racecourses.

Have a cocktail in the Yas Viceroy; a five star hotel built half on land, half over water and checkout the famed Cipriani, overlooking the Yas Marina. Go shopping at the 280,000 sq.m. Yas Mall with Rogo’s Rollercoaster Restaurant. Wee!
