What to do in Abu Dhabi for 4 days? Lots of questions....

I'm in Abu Dhabi for 4 days from the 14th-17th July. Looking for ideas and suggestions of what to do for this fantastic stopover. So far I'm thinking 1 day in Ferrari World, 1 Day at the Waterpark, and definitely visit the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, walk past the Capital Gate and also get out to Mazdar City.

So, are there any combined tickets that allow you to visit both Ferrari World and the Waterpark?

What's the cheapest way to get out and visit Mazdar City?

I see its free entry to the F1 track on a Tuesday and I'm an F1 fan - is it worth a walk around?

When is the best time to visit the Mosque?

Just found out there is an aquarium - when is the best time to visit?

Many thanks!

Are you on your own ? I have seen lots of 2-for-1 vouchers for the less-popular summer time. I'd check the websites from other offers or wait for others to chime in.

Are you planning to stay on Yas Island ? Would make sense as you're spending most of your time around that area.

The airport is 30km from the city and v close to Yas Island and Masdar City. Mosque and other resort areas are half-way between the airport and the city.

You could probably squeeze more in if you wished. I wouldn't spend a whole day at Ferrari World and it will be v hot so you may not want to spend a whole day in the sun at the water park.

Masdar is geek heaven (they are one of my clients) but there's not a massive amount there, so I'd budget 2-3 hours maximum.

The mosque website tells you all you need to know about visiting (http://www.szgmc.ae/)

Taxis are dirt cheap by UK standards.

And ... it will be Ramadan, so no eating, drinking or smoking in public during daylight hours. See multiple recent threads here about this. It's manageable, but you have to plan ahead.

My trip report and photos will hopefully give you lots of ideas:-

Also remember that July is going to be very hot, it is unlikely you will be able to walk far in the intense heat.

Enjoy!
