About Al Ain
Al Ain, known as the 'Oasis City' of the Emirates, is the UAE’s largest inland city and second city to Abu Dhabi. This tranquil city lies under the shadow of Jebel Hafeet – the Emirate’s tallest mountain peak at 1,340 metres! Surrounded by magnificent red sand dunes and impressive mountain range, it brings refreshing relief from the humidity of the coast making it a holiday destination of the UAE’s Sheikhs for many years.
