On this day trip you'll get the chance to see stunning oases, palaces, mountains and a fascinating camel market. Experience the traditional Arabic essence of Al Ain.
Al Ain Day Trip
After picking you up from your hotels in Dubai at 9 am, we'll head south-east on an hour and a half-long bus ride to Al Ain, located on the border with Oman.
We'll arrive at Al Ain, the fourth largest city in the United Arab Emirates. Did you know that it is known as 'The Spring'? You'll find out why on the trip!
Our first stop will be at the Hili archaeological park, where we'll find ruins of over 4,000 years old. You'll find out all about the first civilisations that populated these areas.
Afterwards, we'll head to Sheikh Zayed Palace or the Al Ain Museum, just 15 minutes away by bus. We'll explore the museum as we learn all about the history of Al Ain.
After visiting the palace we'll stop for lunch. You can either get your own lunch or book the option that includes an international buffet (drinks not included). It's up to you!
After lunch we'll head to a fascinating camel market, where buyers and sellers barter over hundreds of different camels.
Our last stop will be the Jahili Fort. We'll enter this fortress and marvel at its extensive collection of photographs and admire its 19th-century architecture.
At 5 pm the tour will end and we'll take you back to your hotels in Dubai.
