Pros: -Free parking -Free entry -Cobbled pathways. We got a bit lost but fortunately got picked up by a kind security... More

The oasis is filled with palm plantations, many of which are still working farms. The oasis is a cool and shady spot in town. It’s a nice place to cool down a bit. The irrigation system is ingenious and well preserved. Here you can see many varieties of date palms. Worth a short visit. Entry is free.

Even in the heat of summer it is cool in the oasis...here one can witness the harvesting of the dates in late summer as well as the carefully engineered "Falaj" streams that supply the water to all the various date plots.. There are many other date plantation oasis ...including Hilli and Qattara...but teh Al-Ain one in the center of town... More

This is probably not a main tourist attraction but it's a really lovely place to walk through the palm plantations and relax, especially in the heat of the day. Take water with you.

its one of the old oasis in Al Ain where you can bring yourself many years back. see the palms, vegtables growing, walk in the small and narrow alleys, discover the old irrigation method. it can be done with the car but I like it on foot early in the morning. something like 6-7am then you can see the fort...

This is an Arab country, one would expect to find an Oasis! I mean, that's the perception of the middle east; deserts, camels and oasis right? Although the oasis is no longer in use, you will be able to see the structure of the oasis and the green palm trees surrounding it. Beautiful site to catch in on some history... More

We went with Ursula from Arabian Adventures and I do believe she made this tour for us. She was like your favorite teacher, totally engaging. The worst thing was our driver, we really feared for our lives on more than one occasion. What I realized about the oasis tour was that this was really the only real long term history... More
