The city of Al Ain extends over a large area adjacent to the border of Oman. It is centered around the Al Ain oasis, a date palm oasis extending over 1200 hectares. There is not that much in terms of historical and heritage buildings, but the city is elegant and clean, with plenty of green areas and several shopping malls. With over half a million inhabitants, Al Ain is a pretty large urban centre in the Arabian desert.
