Abu Dhabi's Yas Island
One of Abu Dhabi's most vibrant neighborhoods sits on Yas Island. It's part beach, part high-end resort, part giant playground. The F1 Grand Prix race circuit cuts under the Yas Viceroy hotel and edges past the marina, where yachts moor with their own trackside floating seats. The island is also home to the Yas Mall, where you can exercise your wallet while your kids hit Yas Waterworld or speed on the world's fastest roller coaster at Ferrari World.
