The garden city
A trip to Al Ain, a refreshing oasis of green amid the harsh desert, offers a scenic break from the hum of Abu Dhabi. The city is literally constructed on oases--seven of them--designed using the ancient "falaj" irrigation method that makes use of water from boreholes. Constantly inhabited for more than 4,000 years, the city brims with a rich history and striking Middle Eastern architecture. Many visitors also come to escape the oppressive humidity of the coastal cities. Well connected to Abu Dhabi, Al Ain serves as an easily accessible window into authentic Arabic culture. Add Al Ain and other United Arab Emirates destinations to your travel plans using our United Arab Emirates road trip app.
