Explore one of the most essential aspects of urban infrastructure at Al Ain Oasis, a peaceful urban oasis--literally. Known for its below-ground falaj irrigation system, with sloping underground channels transporting water from the main source to key areas, the site possesses an agricultural, historical, and biological importance. Recognized internationally as a significant heritage site, the irrigation system dates back some 3,000 years, and many of the palm plantations here still function as farms. Covering an area of 1,200 hectares (2,965 acres), the oasis and surrounding plantations are home to more than 147,000 date palms of 100 different varieties.

Al Ain Oasis is a best place for those looking to immerse themselves in nature life, and a walk around the oasis is a breathtaking way to do it. Very good pathways are shaded by a vibrant canopy of trees blooming with fruits like mangoes and date. The oasis is also ripe for exploration on two wheels. Relax and ride a bicycle underneath the shade of the palm fronds for a more unique places. Best time go morning or evening. Open time 9 to 5pm. Free parking and entry . I like the farm water line system
A nice place for a get away weekend for a nice walk around full date farms. It’s very good and surprising to see such grown trees in Oasis. I would recommend to take bicycle so that it would be nice to see farms like this. It will not take much time hardly 15 to 20 mins, even if skipped no issues. It’s free of cost, no entry fee only have to pay for bicycle or buggy that’s all. There are 1 or 2 small restaurants in the premises
