Al Ain is a city in the Abu Dhabi Emirate adjacent to the border to Oman, 140km west of Abu Dhabi and 125km south of Dubai. The city has developed around an oasis in the desert and has been inhabited for over 4000 years. Al Ain is a very green place, with carefully choreographed gardens. As with most cities in the U.A.E. also Al Ain is a very modern place with shopping malls, with few historical buildings, one of them being the Jahili fort. The Al Ain oasis contains date palms and extends over 1200 hectare in the centre of Al Ain. Near Al Ain is Jebel Hafeet, a mountain with a good view of the area. North of Al Ain lies the Hili archaelogical park.
