Full description
Al Ain, the traditional seat of the Sheikhs, is perhaps the most folkloric of the main cities in the UAE. Explore this city on a full day trip from Dubai and experience a world that combines culture and tradition with present day life.   Start off with a 1.5-hour drive to Al Ain, where you’ll experience desert life in all its glory. Visit the National Museum, followed by a visit to the Sheikh Zayed Palace Museum to admire its fluid mix of Bedouin-style and modern architecture. Here, you’ll learn more about ancient Emirati customs and traditions.   Have a buffet lunch in the city and sample local and regional dishes. Following this, discover the camel market and camel race track, a must-see attraction. Head to Jebel Hafeet, a great mountain overlooking the city where you can take in stunning views. Jahili Fort awaits you next, one of the largest castles in Al In and an excellent example of Islamic military architecture.   Then, visit Qasr Al Muwaiji, an impressive structure that has watched over the oasis for around 100 years. Finally, visit the hot springs Al Mubazzarah, whose water is said to have mysterious healing powers. After an eventful day, you’ll be driven back to Dubai.

What I particularly liked about the excursion was the optimal mix of nature and culture. Al Ain is a green oasis in the desert. The lunch buffet was varied and tasted very good. There were many different impressions on the trip. The guide was very friendly and was able to answer all of our questions.

Our driver was very friendly and accommodating. You have for each stop about 30 / 40min time to take pictures and have a look. Lunch at the hotel was very nice. The "blessed" water is very warm and pleasant to wet the feet. It was generally an exciting and successful trip.

Seen a lot, but always rushed through all the stations.
