Abu-Dhabi - Grand-Prix
Posted: 28 October 2016
You may know Abu Dhabi in The United Arab Emirates, as one of the wealthiest cities on the planet. This gorgeous coastal hub along the Persian Gulf is a veritable playground for those locals and travellers in the Middle East that appreciate luxury, culture, and the spectacle of F1® racing. With Abu Dhabi being home to such man made wonders as the world's fastest roller coaster and the planned future openings of the Guggenheim and Louvre museums, gone are the days when culture-seeking visitors to the UAE have to head to Dubai to get their fix of excitement and luxury. Perhaps one of the most popular upgrades this Emerald City look-alike has seen in the last decade is the addition of the stately Yas Marina Circuit — the grand and state-of-the-art racing stadium designed to be the home of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. More and more locals and ex-pats, within the UAE, are finding that this popular Abu Dhabi Formula1® event is the perfect holiday destination or even staycation, for a memorable and decadent holiday. Wether you'll be visiting Abu Dhabi for the first time, or planning a staycation in your own city, perhaps the best part of going to the Abu Dhabi Formula1® event is the choice of incredible, luxury accommodations nearby.
This annual Abu Dhabi Grand Prix event draws over 40,000 spectators to take in the excitement and spectacle of the surroundings.
