Oasis have helped the travellers in desert in a big way. The Al Ain Oasis has been well preserved and is now a UNESCO Heritage site. The place is worth a visit.

If you're visiting Al Ain as a tourist, then this is definitely worth your while. There isn't much else in the way of activities for tourists, and it's clear that a lot of effort has gone into making this place accessible and interesting for tourists. It's nice for a walk round in the heat of the day,and there are a... More

This oasis needs to move way up in the Things To Do rankings for al Ain. Newly redone ($millions spent I'm guessing), reopened a couple weeks ago. First class: coffee shops, restrooms, great map, historical spots, little museum with video, etc. There's even bicycle rental at the main entrance. All the oasises here are lovely, peaceful places to walk; and... More

A real oasis not fare away from Dubai or even from the Oman. You can reach the oasis or even al ain by bus from Dubai within two hours. It's a must see in al ain! There is a lot of history to discover and the friendly staff knows almost everything about the region, the oasis and its history. Lovely... More

I loved visiting the oasis as it is so peaceful to stroll around and lose yourself. the newer buildings are a great add on and the staff really know about the place.

When I walked up to the entrance to the Oasis, I was accosted by a very friendly, eager staffer who pressed a brochure (available only in Arabic) into my hand and urged me to visit first the miniature oasis outside the entrance. I was glad I did, because it had signs in both English and Arabic explaining the various plants... More

I think we entered through a back gate that was open for workers and not for tourists, and then exited out a similar looking gateway by the museum. Perhaps there was a proper entrance elsewhere, but it proved to be a nice shortcut for us. It was interesting to see the falaj irrigation system on such a large scale and... More

Forget imaginings of grassy knowles and sitting by streams under trees. This is an area of private farms mostly growing dates using small concrete water channels for irrigation. In between which are walled concrete paths. If you like walking on long partially shaded concrete paths with little signage and have gps, this is for you. That is all.

I came here with my family, I recommend coming here alone to think, it is peaceful and quiete, the pathway is extensive and you could go on for km you could get lost. It's a very calm environment. you can get some good shots of the palm trees, but thats pretty much it. it's a short visit and depends on... More

Good to see Palms tree and how dates are been grown , We get a chance to taste the farm fresh dates. the walk was long and tiring . It would have been nice if we saw some Farmers explaining the crops and type of date .
