Al-Ain

This city south of Dubai is dominated by the jagged peak of 1,340-meter (4,400-foot) Mount Hafīt. Al-Ain is home to a number of UNESCO Cultural Sites, including the restored 1891 Al-Jahili Fort and the Al-Qattara Fort, now used to host art exhibits. The city's ancient irrigation system, or falaj, which dates back thousands of years, can still be seen snaking through the shady Al-Ain oasis. At its edge is the Al-Ain Palace Museum, in the former home of Sheikh Zayed, the founder and first president of the United Arab Emirates. Visit the famous Camel Market to watch traders haggle over the animals.
