4 Clever Ways to Explore More Places in Abu Dhabi Without Leaving the City

Are you looking for the best ways to explore more places in Abu Dhabi? If you have no idea what to do, this article can help you.

Why do you travel?

For most people, visiting new places is a method of learning and experiencing new things. It is also a way of getting inspiration and coming out of one’s comfort zones.

Though not everyone gets a chance to go on a continental cruise, there are ways you can explore other destinations even without physically leaving the United Arab Emirates (UAE). If you’re in Abu Dhabi, you can do that on Yas Island.

Besides watching movies and playing immersive games, here are four clever ways you can explore different worlds in Abu Dhabi:


1. Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi: Virtual Reality

Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi is a famous water park in the UAE that offers more than 40 exciting rides, slides, and attractions.

Deemed the most legendary of all water parks in the country, this Yas Island theme park can also provide an out-of-this-world experience to guests through the Underwater VR Experience.

The first of its kind in the UAE, this immersive attraction lets guests dive into the underwater world for an unprecedented full-body sensory experience.

Through this aquatic virtual reality in Abu Dhabi, you can enjoy four different worlds, including:

  • A realistic glide down the snowy mountain peaks and steep slopes
  • A deep dive into the ocean where remnants of decommissioned submarines and drowned ships abound
  • A close-up seal-guided encounter of different marine creatures
  • An exploration of an abandoned space station high above the Earth

Besides the virtual reality experience, Cinesplash also can awaken your senses with a simulated journey through the country’s pearl-diving past.

Staying true to the park’s theme, this 5D cinematic experience tells the story of “The Legend of the Lost Pearl.” This immersive movie attraction features the adventure of a young girl named “Dana,” who embarks on a quest to recover a massive pearl that will hopefully return her village to its former glory.


2. Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi: ‘Lands’

No other UAE destination can beat Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi when it comes to bringing fantastical worlds to life. After all, it is the only place you can meet your favourite cartoon characters and superheroes in their “natural habitat.”

In this theme park, you can experience what it’s like to stroll across popular fictional cities and witness the remarkable feats of some of the greatest superheroes of all time.

Take Gotham City, for example.

Home to Batman and most of his nemeses, this is one of the few places where you can experience a sinister atmosphere combined with exciting rides and attractions.

And then, there’s Metropolis.

Sometimes referred to as the “City of Tomorrow,” this fictitious city is where you’ll find Superman – the Man of Steel himself – and the other members of the Justice League.

Want something more whimsical? Warner Bros. World also houses several animated worlds brought to life. Each land follows a specific franchise:

  • Cartoon Junction and Dynamite Gulch – Hanna Barbera and Looney Tunes
  • Bedrock – The Flintstones

3. Ferrari World Abu Dhabi: Simulators

When people travel, they aren’t always after new places (real or fictional). Sometimes, an experience makes up an entirely new world.

An excellent example of this is the world of racing.

To experience this, try Ferrari World Abu Dhabi’s Scuderia Challenge. In this attraction, you can experience how Ferrari race car drivers practise the skills that help them dominate the track and bring home the Formula One trophy.

Besides offering a piece of the action on the racetrack, Ferrari World also has a multisensory simulator that lets guests see and experience Italy’s mountains, vineyards, cities, and villages: the Viaggio in Italia. This flying theatre, inspired by the iconic Mille Miglia endurance race, offers a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience you won’t find anywhere else.


4. Qasr Al Watan: Libraries

Reading can take you to different worlds. In some cases, it can even bring you to a different era.

At Qasr Al Watan, you can explore other places and periods. The presidential palace is a publicly accessible destination. Book a palace tour if you wish to delve into the rich history, culture, and religious background of the UAE and the rest of the Arab region.

It is divided into several zones, including the House of Knowledge. In this section, you’ll find a vast collection of valuable manuscripts and artifacts. Here, you’ll get a glimpse of the most notable contributions of the Arab region to the sciences, art, literature, and many more.

Seeking timeless reads in Abu Dhabi? The Qasr Al Watan Library preserves centuries-worth of literature. In this zone, over 50,000 books from various Arabian scholarly eras are openly shared in an expansive space in the hopes of inspiring and shaping the future.


A Whole New World

With technology, art, science, and architecture, it’s no longer impossible to experience new things without travelling far from your hometown. In Abu Dhabi, you can explore new worlds within a single island. Visit Yas Island and try these clever ways to get an enriching trip.
