Opened in late 2014, Yas Mall is the second largest mall in the country after Dubai Mall, and the first in Abu Dhabi after Marina Mall. Although located outside the city, it quickly conquered the people of Abu Dhabi, and also those of Dubai, who appreciate its wide choice of shops for shopping, restaurants and cafés.
Yas Mall Overview
With Yas Mall open at the end of 2014, Abu Dhabi finally has its big shopping center and can compete with Dubai's huge malls. It is true that the very famous Marina Mall, star of the city, was aging compared to the new malls of Dubai.
On an expansive island with its theme parks and Formula 1 circuit, Yas Mall on Yas Island, and its 2.5 million square meters, provides a beautiful shopping experience to its visitors. The paths are wide and bright. The mall is attached to the Ferrari World, some would say that it is for these gentlemen to toy with cars while ladies rob Yas Mall stores.
Near Ferrari World, an outdoor area offers many restaurants at the edge of a body of water with fountains (Cascade Dining). In many places of Yas Mall, there are concentrations of restaurants and cafés.
