UAE – Cultural Sites of Al Ain (Hafit, Hili, Bidaa Bint Saud and Oases Areas)

Al Ain, an oasis in the middle of the desert, is the largest in-land city in UAE. Though smaller than Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Al Ain still has so much to offer that you can’t not visit this place. Located only two hours east of Dubai, this destination makes for a great weekend getaway!

Al Ain is full of parks, tree-lined avenues, green roundabouts and mini oasis, giving it the nickname ‘Garden City’.
