The Oasis City of UAE

A one and a half hour drive from Abu Dhabi city, Al Ain is one of the world's oldest permanently inhabited settlements, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Known primarily for its picturesque forts and historic buildings, the main attractions also include Al Ain oasis for its cool, shady walkways, beautiful palm groves and the famous camel market - one of the last few remaining. Al Ain is also the home for Jebel Hafeet – The second largest peak in the UAE.

Business in Al Ain

Al Ain, in early 1920s, was an economy based primarily on fishing and pearl diving and on simple agriculture in scattered oases inland. Many years later, many innovative reformations led to the growth of the city. Development in the agricultural sector and establishment of oasis as the market helped ensure Al Ain a bright future. Today, the city is one of the greenest in the Arab world – at the same time advancing in trade and business.
