Fast cars, water sports, and the world's fastest roller coasters keep thrill seekers racing around the Emirate of Abu Dhabi on a fast-paced vacation schedule. Yas Island is the place to start an action-packed trip, with Ferrari World and Yas Waterworld. Flying above the city or driving through desert dunes can make anyone's pulse quicken. For a quieter day, bicycle Jebel Hafeet or enjoy a morning kayak through the island's mangroves.
