Situated on Yas Island which will soon be a tourist destination of note with a diverse array of entertainment options, Ferrari World has placed itself as a highlight for both locals and foreign visitors. The decision to place the theme park in Abu Dhabi is due to the fact that the emirate is strategically located at the crossroads between Asia, Europe and Africa. Motor sports are also very popular in the United Arab Emirates and there is a strong Ferrari fan following here.
