Al Ain is beyond any ordinary city, it is a crucial center for agriculture, the birthplace of the esteemed Sheikh Zayed and Abu Dhabi’s second largest city. Al Ain is visited by many for its historical forts, UNESCO sites, date-palm oasis, and museums.

Your driver guide will pick you up from your hotel in Dubai and escort you to the green city of Al Ain. Your first stop will be the Hili Archaeological Park. This is a blend of a public garden and archaeological site that house remains of a Bronze Age settlement which was unearthed and restored in 1995. Some of its finds include tombs and a Falaj (traditional irrigation system) that is believed to be from the Iron Age. Apart from that, you could just chill out near the fountains or head over to Fossil Valley to discover a rich selection of fossils that date back thousands of years.
Let off some steam with a delicious lunch before visiting the Al Ain Palace Museum, the former home of UAE’s founding father, Sheikh Zayed. This palace was his residence from 1937 to 1966. It was refurbished in 1998 and made into a museum in 2001. The cinnamon-colored structure houses a big collection of materials relating to the ruling family. The beautiful cacti and palm trees all decorate the compound that takes you to view the Sheikh’s huge kitchen, his marital bed and his cherished Land Rover mostly used for visiting the desert.
On your way back to your hotel in Dubai, we will make the last stop at the famous Camel Market. A good way to explore the Arabic culture is to get to know its most prized animal. Admire all sorts of camels from babies to racers. You are free to roam around and snap some amazing pictures for storytelling back home.
