Are you planning a weekend trip to Al Ain anytime soon? We just found some seriously fun glamping and camping options, ranging from the bubble tent, luxury dome tent to the traditional bedouin option or even a camping plot to rent (and you bring along all your gear), your choice!
Spending a weekend in Al Ain is always a good idea, as it offers so many different outdoor activities . The Al Ain Zoo, Wadi Adventure Park, Al Ain Oasis, The Green Mubbazarrah, Qasr Al Muwaiji are among the many active, cultural and heritage options to pick from and you’ll soon find out that one weekend is not enough to try it all.
Visiting Al Ain obviously also means you can explore Jebel Hafit mountain – the second highest peak in the UAE with 1,249meters (the highest peak is Jebel Al Jais located in RAS, with an elevation of 1,934m by the way).
In 2011, UNESCO recognized Jebel Hafit Desert Park as a component of the World Heritage Site of Al Ain, the United Arab Emirates’ first World Heritage Site. “Jebel Hafit Desert Park preserves this rich history and the area’s unique biodiversity. The park enables visitors to experience this dynamic landscape up close and to understand how it has changed over millions of years.”
