Destination

A one and a half hour drive from Abu Dhabi city, Al Ain is one of the world’s oldest permanently inhabited settlements with attractions and activities to suit travellers of all types: One of the UAE’s most historic buildings and among the city’s

One of the UAE’s most historic buildings and among the city’s many picturesque forts, Al Jahili Fort was erected in 1891 to defend the city and protect precious palm groves. It is also home to a permanent exhibition of the work of British adventurer Sir Wilfred Thesiger and his 1940s crossings of the Rub Al Khali (The Empty Quarter) desert. For stunning views of the city, drive, take a cab or cycle to the

For stunning views of the city, drive, take a cab or cycle to the top of Jebel Hafeet – a rocky height dominating the city – via a winding highway. Rising 1,240 metres, this is the emirate’s highest peak, and UAE’s second.

Watersports can try Wadi Adventure, the region’s only man-made white water rafting, kayaking and surf facility built in the foothills of the majestic Jebel Hafeet. The park’s 3.3 metre man-made surf wave is the world’s largest and its 1.7 kilometre kayaking channel network is the world’s longest. For a taste of the fast track, head to Al Ain Raceway and burn rubber at its 1.6 km go-karting track – Arabia’s largest.

Other attractions include the UNESCO-enlisted Al Ain Oasis with its cool, shady walkways, a 3,000-year-old falaj irrigation system and the camel market – one of the last few remaining. This date palm oasis has been recognised by the United Nation’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) for its importance as a repository of genetic resources, biodiversity and cultural heritage.

Families can head to the Al Ain Zoo – home to over 4,000 animals – and enjoy giraffe feeding, camel riding and ‘Elezba’ petting zoo. For a fun day out, the Hili Fun-City, the Gulf’s oldest theme park offers one of the cheapest days out with an entry fee no more than AED 40 (US$ 11).
