Abu Dhabi Formula One Grand Prix is a magnet for celebrities and Middle East royals, who every year since 2009 come to the unmatchable Yas Marina Circuit - a purpose-built racing track on Yas Island.
The impressive circuit blends the beautiful landscape of the UAE, traditional Arabic motifs, welcoming hospitality and all the action and sophistication of the most glamorous sport of them all.
Majestically set along a marina with space for 150 yachts, the circuit comprises marvels such as Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. This Ferrari theme park is a class of its own - a dreamland under a roof styled after the iconic Ferrari GT model where you can race through dual coasters or shop in a lavish 300,000 sqm retail space.
There's also impressive Yas Marina Hotel, with the racing track running right through it! Here VIP guests have the best possible view of the Grand Prix from Sun Tower, a 70-metre structure perched above the circuit.
Abu Dhabi can boast being the richest city in the world, and the Grand Prix is an indicator of this immense wealth. The emirate has a cosmopolitan and modern feel, as well as a wide range of restaurant choices to suite any budget - from the elite-oriented Emirates Palace to traditional cafes.
For an authentic glimpse of Middle Eastern life, the nearby fish market and the camel market in Al Ain are worth a visit.
Yas Island is easily accessible by taxi from the International Airport, and it's only a short drive away from downtown Abu Dhabi.
