Add To Plan

Experience scenic beauty during this full-day visit to picturesque Al Ain, the Garden City.

Depart the pier for the drive 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 point on the caravan trail between the United Arab Emirates and Sultanate of Oman.

Upon arrival in Al Ain, you will proceed for a visit to the Hilli Archaeological Park. Here, you will find tombs from the 5,000-year-old Umm Al Nar Period.

Next, you will continue on for a visit to 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 will see the museum's ethnographical and archaeological sections. The 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.

A visit will then be made to the Camel Market, a unique regional market in which camels are traded daily. Following your visit at the Camel Market you will drive to one of the city's star hotels, where you will be treated to a relaxing buffet lunch. After you will re-board your coach and travel back to the pier in Abu Dhabi.

Please note: Female guests are encouraged to wear conservative attire covering the shoulders, arms and knees.
