Surround yourself with the greenery and sights of the ‘Garden City’ of Al Ain on this full-day tour from Dubai! Board an air-conditioned coach and cross the desert to this lovely, relaxed city cradled by the jagged Hajar Mountains on the Omani border. Discover its history from your guide, and picture-postcard Al Jahili Fort, former royal palace, two museums and ‘falaj’ irrigation channels. Cool your feet in the hot springs beneath Jebel Hafeet mountain and then finish with a visit to the traditional camel market!

Description:
Drive through the desert to explore Al Ain on this full-day tour. After pickup from your central Dubai hotel, settle into your air-conditioned coach. Then, sit back and absorb the desert views as you head to Al Ain.

Dubbed the Garden City for its green parks, this attractive city is fringed by the Hajar Mountains near the Oman border. On arrival you will visit Al Jahili Fort, one of the UAE’s oldest buildings. Head inside to explore this postcard-pretty fort and learn how it was built in 1891 to protect the city’s palm groves.

Continue to explore the Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum. The former home of late UAE president, His Highness Sheikh Zayed, this restored palace sits among palms and magnolia trees, and comprises official rooms and collections that belong to the ruling family. Stretch your legs around Al Ain oasis to see the simple-but-ingenious Falaj channels. Snaking overground between the palms, take a closer look at the channels and learn they have been used to irrigate local plantations for thousands for years.

Then, head for Al Ain National Museum, where many more of the park's relics are on show. View the age-old pottery and tools, and chart Al Ain’s recent history in the days before the discovery of oil.

Stop at the bustling Camel Market. See the camels and mingle with the locals as they inspect and haggle over the prized livestock. Following lunch (own expense), visit the hot springs below Jebel Hafeet, the mountain that towers over the city. Perhaps paddle in the waters, and then start your drive back to Dubai.

Please note: the order of activities as described above may be subject to change on the day of the tour.
