Explore one of the most essential aspects of urban infrastructure at Al Ain Oasis, a peaceful urban oasis--literally. Known for its below-ground falaj irrigation system, with sloping underground channels transporting water from the main source to key areas, the site possesses an agricultural, historical, and biological importance. Recognized internationally as a significant heritage site, the irrigation system dates back some 3,000 years, and many of the palm plantations here still function as farms. Covering an area of 1,200 hectares (2,965 acres), the oasis and surrounding plantations are home to more than 147,000 date palms of 100 different varieties. Follow the shady pathways and take in the greenery and tranquility. To visit Al Ain Oasis on your trip to Al Ain, use our Al Ain travel route planner.

Maybe I was expecting more but the Palm oases did not quite deliver what I had hoped for. The palms are divided into quite small enclosed spaces that you are free to walk into but they are limited...

Do go there if you have time. It's just a walk between the palm trees. You can really see how the water management been done and distribution of water to different owner palm trees. You can step on to the fields and fetch some oranges too. It's a big farm and they provide bicycle too on rent. Food court also available. A good walk if you like walking.
An enchanting place ,as never seen before.The palm trees farms extend on both sides of the well paved pathways ,for 10 kilometers. The rich greenery and the tall trees provide shadowy retreat unmatched in beauty and tranquility. A must see place in Al Ain.
