Yas Marina F1 Circuit

Yas Marina circuit, Abu Dhabi, UAE

November 2012

Being an ardent fan of Ferrari and F1, our next itinerary will be a visit to Ferrari World located on Yas Island. Unfortunately, as we arrived we were told by traffic police all roads leading to Ferrari World are closed and they too are not sure when it will be opened. All tourist buses, public and private vehicles were diverted to a parking lot to wait. It is here our driver learned that some dignitary or royalty or celebrity was at Ferrari World and they have Ferrari World all to themselves.

What inconsiderate fellas to have this privilege as we have flown half way around the world to be here at this specific day and time just to be turned away. What a waste of time and money. Sighhhh. We understand that there were no prior notice issued of the closure as locals were unaware of it too. We did not wait as we have other attractions to visit. And no, we did not return the next day as we will be flying home.

Ferrari World Abu Dhabi

About as close as we can get to Ferrari World. Closed for some private visitor. No notice given.

Since the Yas Marina F1 Circuit is within the vicinity, our driver took us around before we leave for our next location of interest. From outside the circuit, we can clearly see the exclusive Yas Viceroy Hotel which has part of the F1 circuit running under the hotel building.
