AL AIN OASIS: FARMS OF THE SHEIKHS

 A tranquil respite from the hot sun, and a refreshingly natural diversion from the city streets, Al Ain Oasis is a vast series of date palm plantations linked by footpaths right in the heart of the city. A small museum near the main entrance does a good job of explaining the importance of date palms to traditional life, while the oasis itself contains nearly 150,000 date palm trees. The palm groves are still fed by water channels using the traditional falaj irrigation system, which has been in use in the United Arab Emirates for 3,000 years.

 
This is a great option for anyone seeking some downtime and a relaxing stroll. Horse rides and buggy ride tours of the oasis are available at the main entrance
