Location: Al Ain, UAE

Location: Al Ain, UAE – is a city in the Eastern Region of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates. Located on the border with Oman, it is also known as the “Garden City of the Gulf” due to its greenery, particularly with regard to the city’s oasis, parks, tree-lined avenues and decorative roundabouts. It is the largest inland city in the United Arab Emirates, the fourth-largest overall (after Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah), and the second-largest in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Climate – Al Ain has a hot desert climate featuring long, extremely hot summers and warm winters. Low humidity in Al-Ain, particularly during the summers, makes it a popular destination for many people at that time of year.

Education – Many of Al-Ain’s private schools, catering mainly to the expatriate population, are located in the Al-Manaseer area.

Overview – Fed by natural springs and set amid date-palm plantations, Al Ain was once a vital pit-stop on the caravan route between Oman and the Gulf. A sprawling city, radiating out from the green heart of its central oasis, is a laid-back place. Its lack of ultramodern skyscrapers, preserved fort and smattering of UNESCO World Heritage sites has given it a reputation as a cultural hub while the zoo and Wadi Adventure water park are popular family destinations on the weekend.
