A walk into the Oasis of Al Ain to see the falaj water system built originally 3000 years ago and bringing water from the hills and mountains to the valley. Paved walking area, guides available and battery operated golf carts for access.

Strolling through the Oasis, in the Centre of Al Ain, was a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. It's free to enter and you are at liberty to wander round the large complex. However, there's very little Visitor Information which is a shame, other than in the Eco Centre. There are bikes which you can hire to explore and also a 'train' which would be ideal for those with mobility issues. It's well maintained paths make it easily accesible for pushchair and wheelchair users. Good toilet facilities.

Oasenstadt Al Ain is literally an oasis in the center of the bustling city of Al Ain in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. This oasis covers approximately 2962 acres of palm trees and an ancient (and still functioning!) irrigation system. The oasis is home to approximately 147,000 date palms and fruit trees. The highlight of my visit was seeing up close the date palms and them sampling some of their fruit! During a presentation a gentleman used only a rope and his feet to climb up an 80 year old palm date tree. I learned that due to changes in nature, pollination is now done manually—it is used to occur and be relied on naturally.

After sampling a couple of complimentary dates, I purchased a 1kg package of dates for 20AED. The dates were delicious; continuing to enjoy them once I returned home provided fond memories of my time in Al Ain.

This is a beautiful oasis in the heart of the city. We watched a man climb the date palm trees to retrieve the dates. It's a nice place to relax.

Could be a true gem, but unfortunately this UNESCO world heritage site is full of plastic waste. The main paths are well maintained and allow for an enjoyable walk through the date palm trees. But the single parcel gardens with are full of plastic bottles and other waste.

Maybe I was expecting more but the Palm oases did not quite deliver what I had hoped for. The palms are divided into quite small enclosed spaces that you are free to walk into but they are limited. The main walk is on a well made concrete path that becomes a bit of a drag. There are bikes you can hire and electric buggies that can be rented.we enjoyed our little walk but we did cut it short!

Perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city. Come for a stroll, go to the back yard of the museum where you have this beautiful palm forest to stroll around and to unwind! Recommended for calming minds🙌

We visited over lunchtime. It was pretty quiet. We hired a 2 seater pedal cart for 30 dirham for 1 hour. A bit small for me at 6ft 1 inch.
The oasis is not huge so on reflection we could have walked around just as easily. Very clean and neat. Well explained at the West entrance.
Nice coffee shop/cafe in the middle... somewhere.
Worth a visit but 90 minutes would do it.
Next time I will pack some binoculars, glimpsed some very interesting bird life.

We had a little trouble finding the Oasis via Google - it is just down the road (less than 200yards) from the original home of Sheik Zayed.

We had a snack at the small Oasis restaurant before walking through the maze of stone roads/paths. They have 2 and 4 person bike rentals which looked like fun but we decided to walk.

It may have been about a 2 mile walk to get a good feel for the Oasis.

The Al Ain Oasis was an interesting visit, which highlighted the basis of the establishment of Al Ain City. The irrigation system was well explained by our guide as part of the buggy tour which is well worth the small fee.
