Experience scenic beauty during your full-day visit to picturesque Al Ain, the Garden City. Head to to Al Ain, located in the eastern part of Abu Dhabi. Al Ain's lush terrain is dotted with abundant groundwater springs. In the past, this oasis town served as a vital stopover on the caravan trail between the United Arab Emirates and Sultanate of Oman.


Visit the Hilli Archaeological Park, where you’ll find tombs from the 5,000-year-old Umm Al Nar Period. You’ll also visit the Al Ain Museum, built around the turn of the 20th century. It is said that Sheikh Zayed, president of the UAE and ruler of Abu Dhabi, spent a part of his childhood there.


During your guided tour, you’ll see the museum's ethnographical and archaeological sections. A highlight of the tour will be a walk through a truly enchanting oasis nestled amidst palm trees. Here, you will have an opportunity to see an excellent example of falaj, the ancient irrigation system.


Stop at the Camel Market, a unique regional market in which camels are traded daily. At one of the city's star hotels, you’ll be treated to a relaxing buffet lunch.
