Al Ain is known as the garden city of the Gulf and is a very green, fertile city equidistant from Abu Dhabi and Dubai (One hour fifteen) close to the border with Oman. It nestles amongst the rugged peaks of the Hajar Mountains with a back drop of amazing red sand dunes! Al Ain offers a quieter pace of life but is equally suited to those sports fanatics with a love of the outdoors. Its a city where many come for activity based holidays. Life is more traditional and yet offers modern amenities, shopping malls and café culture with the ease of travelling in to Dubai at weekends for the buzz of big city life.
