Al-Ain Oasis United Arab Emirates
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor Profile

Discover Al-Ain Oasis

In the eastern region of the country, 100 miles from the capital, the Al-Ain (translated as 'the spring' in English) oasis, is a good example of the efforts of reforestation accomplished over the last generation. In summer it is a refuge for citizens searching for some fresh air. You will notice that most bottled water in the UAE actually comes from Al-Ain. It is especially impressive from the sky - we highly recommend taking a hot air balloon tour over the desert.
