What to Expect
Known as the 'Garden City', this quaint desert oasis was originally known as a stop on a caravan trail from the Persian Gulf to Indian Ocean but today it is a university city and an agricultural center. Your journey begins at Hili Gardens to view archaeological digs which date back more than 5,000 years. You will then proceed to Al Ain Palace Museum to feast your eyes on fascinating displays, including a collection of family portraits that offer an insight into the way the royal family lived and entertained.
Proceed to Al Ain National Museum which provides an overview of the country’s traditions and culture. Further on, your journey brings you face to face to camels – unique animals that have long accompanied the local Bedouins, but today, they are of immeasurable social and economic value in the region as well as a dependable source of food and milk. Before returning to Dubai, you can stop at Jahili Fort, where various exhibitions are often hosted.
