Continue to Yas Island for photo-ops outside Yas Marina Circuit and Ferrari World, and then drive by the surreal-looking cultural buildings sprouting up on Saadiyat Island. Pass Qasr Al Hosn, a former home of Abu Dhabi’s royals, and after a break for lunch (own expense) at the Mall, see Corniche and Emirates palaces before visiting Heritage Village to learn about the city’s original Bedouin culture.
