Explore one of the most essential aspects of urban infrastructure at Oasenstadt Al Ain, a peaceful urban oasis--literally. Known for its below-ground falaj irrigation system, with sloping underground channels transporting water from the main source to key areas, the site possesses an agricultural, historical, and biological importance. Recognized internationally as a significant heritage site, the irrigation system dates back some 3,000 years, and many of the palm plantations here still function as farms. Covering an area of 1,200 hectares (2,965 acres), the oasis and surrounding plantations are home to more than 147,000 date palms of 100 different varieties. Follow the shady pathways and take in the greenery and tranquility. To visit Oasenstadt Al Ain on your trip to Al Ain, use our Al Ain travel route planner.

  • Far from the frantic bustle of its big sisters Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Al Ain offers some well-come rest with its beautifully preserved oasis (although, in the UAE, you never know what has been "restored" and what has been "rebuilt"). The walk is pleasant in the shade of the palm trees scenting millions of dates. Small downside: the indications inside leave frankly to be desired and we tend to turn a little before finding his way.

  • Heritage maintained in conservation by families owning many parts due to this oasis. Highlighting canals to allow water to arrive and thus maintain vegetation
