Al Ain (العين) which translates literally into ‘the spring’ is also known as the Garden City and is located in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, close to the border with Oman – it’s a ninety minute journey from the capital or Dubai and is the perfect place for a weekend escape. Known for its culture and outdoors activities, it’s a must see for any visitor to the Emirates. As an expat who has lived in Al Ain for the past two years, I am hoping to give you the inside track on what to see & do whilst visiting this beautiful city.
