About Al Ain
Al Ain is distinctively known as the Oasis City of the Gulf. Cradled by traditional falaj waterways, it blooms as the UAE's cultural gem. As Abu Dhabi's second largest and the UAE's fourth largest city, Al Ain unfolds its heritage-rich tapestry just 150 km from Abu Dhabi and Dubai. A living testament to history, it's both the birthplace and heartland of the UAE’s late founding father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Al Ain embodies a profound connection to the nation's legacy, cherished by both royal lineage and its people.
