Al-Ain Flight Deals with Jazeera Airways

Explore Al-Ain with Jazeera

This historic city sits on the UAE's border with Oman, and is the fourth-largest city in the region. It's known as the Garden City, thanks to its many parks, gardens and oases, giving it a lush, tranquil feel. It's a historically important centre, and home to around 770,000 people.

Al-Ain relishes its reputation as the 'Garden City', and is a lush, green metropolis where busy city streets are interspersed with green, flower-filled gardens. With buildings restricted to no more than seven floors, it's a very different city-scape compared to some of the more ultra-modern locations elsewhere within the UAE.

The oases that surround Al-Ain are regarded as some of the most important environmental regions in the whole of the Arabian Peninsula. In the city itself, the thoughtful development means that existing historically important buildings are preserved alongside sympathetically designed newer constructions.

Things To Do

Shopping

Al Ain has good shopping facilities, including three large malls, the biggest of which is the Al Ain Mall in the town centre. Here, you'll find plenty of retail stores as well as an ice skating rink and a cinema, making it a good destination for families. The Al Jimi Mall is an excellent and completely renovated mall, while the Al Bawadi Mall is the newest, where you'll also find the Gold Souq for top quality jewellery. If you want to see a slice of traditional life, the camel market is nearby and is well worth a visit (although we don't recommend buying any of the merchandise!)

For traditional women's Arabic clothing the Arabia Center is a speciality shop for ladies, while throughout the city you'll also find plenty of boutiques and independent stores selling everything from fashion to handicrafts.
 

Food And Drink

Food And Drink

Lebanese and Arabic food is the most popular and cheapest food around in Al Ain, and you'll find it to be excellent quality with large portions and fresh ingredients. There are plenty of vegetarian options on offer too, and the range of international cuisine on offer makes eating out a real pleasure.

You'll also find all the usual fast food outlets in the city, including McDonald's and Hardees. Cafe culture is popular too, especially in the trendy area of Al Ain Sq, to the west of the city centre. The coffee is hot and very strong, and you'll also have the chance to try sweet pastries and light snacks at these cafes while you indulge in a bit of people-watching.
