We want to make your trip there worthwhile so we have put together this quick list of places to visit to get you started –

Stars N Bars: Main Menu Item

Estimated Savings: AED80
Location: Yas Marina
Our Opinion: First port of call is food. We think with our stomachs and Stars N Bars is one of our top choices for good grub. The portions are huge and you definitely won’t leave hungry.
Top Tip: Bring spare change for all the arcade games!

Warner Bros. World™: General Admission

Estimated Savings: AED310
Location: Yas Island Leisure Drive
Our Opinion: We were blown away by Warner Bros. World. The rides, the atmosphere and characters make this place a fantastic day out. You won’t want to leave, because we certainly didn’t.
Top Tip: Wear comfy shoes and get there early to avoid long queues!

Ferrari World: General Admission

Estimated Savings: AED310
Location: Yas Island Leisure Drive
Our Opinion: If you’re a thrill seeker, you will love Ferrari World. The roller coaster alone is enough to attract most people but this indoor theme park has so much more to offer. There are several rides and attractions to see, you don’t have to be a petrol head to enjoy it all.
Top Tip: Don’t go on the roller coaster after eating…you’ve been warned.

Yas Waterworld: General Admission

Estimated Savings: AED265
Location: Yas Island Leisure Drive
Our Opinion: We all know the weather in the UAE can be extreme so a waterpark is a welcome attraction at any time of the year. Take visitors for the day or pack your kids in the car and take them for an epic day out. Whatever your reason for visiting, you’ll love it.
Top Tip: Make sure you do the roller coaster. Yes, that’s right. A roller coaster in a waterpark.

Godiva Chocolatier: Ice Cream Cone

Estimated Savings: AED27
Location: Yas Mall
Our Opinion: It doesn’t get more indulgent than Godiva. Just the smell of the shop gets us excited and when you’re wandering around a mall, sometimes a little sweet treat is what you need to refuel. The ice cream in the chocolate lovers paradise is to die for. You have to try it.
Top Tip: Get vanilla and chocolate mixed. Totally worth the calories.

Stadium: Spend AED350 – Save AED70

Estimated Savings: AED70
Location: Yas Mall
Our Opinion: Need some new kicks? Stadium is the shop for you. Grab yourself some new gym wear while you’re at it. You’ll be spoilt for sportswear choice!
Top Tip: Go for something colourful. We bet you already have a dozen pairs of white trainers…
