The oases of Al Ain City are a good place for visiting by families and friends where old palm farms are located, and know the old methods of irrigation used by grandparents which called “ Alfalag”.

As the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in the UAE, the oasis is a peaceful, quiet change of pace from the city. It actually covers several thousand acres with over 100 varieties of more than 100,000 date palms. There are some date palm plantations still...More
A nice way to spend an hour or so if in town. We took a guided tour on buggy (approx.an hour), as it was simply too big to walk in Summer with two young children. Our tour guide was wonderful - personable, full of information....More
This tour was the highlight of our visit to UAE. It turned out that we were the only ones on the tour and one of the attractions was closed being a Monday but our guide Oliver and our driver Omadd gave us their undivided attention...More
I wish i had no expectations coming to this place but my friend had it in her mind that we would be sitting amongst the trees, within the greenery and cooling off in its shade...nope! All the lovey trees are on either side of this...More
Two hours drive inland into the UAE desert from Dubai. Stunning desert as you progress to arrive at this dry architectural landscape city set on and ancient oasis. In the raining season the locals bring out their 4 wheel drives and sand dune surf. Bizarre...More

No, there is not a restaurant in the Oasis, yet there is a small kiosk for soft drinks and snacks. This very small business is hit and miss and does not maintain regular hours. You will find several restaurants and cafe's near the entry points and parking areas. One can drive through the Oasis near the National Museum and stock yard in about 10 minutes, moving at 5-10 mph. Or, you can walk with a back pack of snacks and water in about 20-30 minutes.
