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.

  • A feast for the eyes. An authentic place. The smell of sugar from dates, and the calm of an oasis. An atypical place to see absolutely. Barely an hour and a like-for-hours dubai.
