Regional Info:
Al Ain is the garden city of the Arabian Gulf enjoying a tranquil and green existence in the protective shadow of the precipitous Hajar Mountains. Without frustrating traffic jams and an abundance of glitzy skyscrapers Al Ain provides a calm and relaxing lifestyle nicely balancing the old and the new. Tradition and modern ways of life combine to offer the best of both worlds; there are huge shopping malls and old souks; there are hotels full of restaurants, bars and sports clubs and forts teeming with history and discovery; there is something for everyone. Adventure beckons the outdoor type with lots of mountain and desert activities and if a quiet day on the beach is the order of the day then both Dubai and Abu Dhabi are just an hour away by car.
