    What an interesting route to the top. It offers a beautiful view of the desert and all of Al Ain. November was a great time to go with not too hot weather.

    From an historical standpoint, Al Jahili Fort is recent, only about 125 years old. But because the indigenous people had a nomadic lifestyle, nothing much residential remains in UAE. The authorities attach great importance to this site and have made extensive renovations and additions, such as a visitor center and exhibitions. At the time of my visit, The Tower was covered in scaffolding and closed.
    The young lady at reception is very hospitable and you are offered a cup of Arab coffee (small ceramic cup and very weak).

    For lovers of history, this place captures the life of HE Sheikh Zayed before he became president of the UAE. The palace is well preserved and the rooms are all preserved with indications of their original use and presence of authentic artifacts

    they have variety of animals. I was excited to see the hippopotamus and gorilla but sadly the area was under maintenance. However they still have alot of other animals such as lions,cheetah and a whole lot of oryx. The zoo was clean and well maintained. In every area they make sure they have shops or snacks bar to be able to refresh and eat food while roaming around the zoo. The experience was great.

    This is very much a working Camel and Goat market so expect to be one of very few tourists. It's a lively place, with lots of shouting and encouragemnent to buy or at the very least to take photos for a price. However, with a polite 'no' to a photo opportunity with a baby camel the vendors are happy to leave you alone to wander among the pens which house Camels (and Goats) of all ages. We spent a fascinating 15 minutes walking around the Souk and then went on to visit the Plant Souk in the same complex.

    A walk into the Oasis of Al Ain to see the falaj water system built originally 3000 years ago and bringing water from the hills and mountains to the valley. Paved walking area, guides available and battery operated golf carts for access.
