There's no better way to spend the weekend than at 'Weekends at the Oasis', a programme that celebrates the Al Ain Oasis as one of the inscribed sites on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in the Al Ain Region!
The historic Al Ain Oasis sprawls across 3,000-acre and provides a unique insight into the region's inhabitants who began taming the desert 4,000 years ago. The oasis holds up to 100 different varieties of vegetations, with widespread plantations that are also working farms.
Shaped by a complex shared water supply, the Al Ain Oasis is based on both wells and ‘falaj’, the UAE’s traditional irrigation system. It has plenty of working examples of the falaj that have been used for centuries to tap into underground wells.
The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi is pleased to invite everyone to enjoy the lush Oasis with a variety of traditional and cultural activities, along with numerous artistic and educational workshops for all ages to enjoy within a great family atmosphere!
**Admission to the event is free, but registration is required to participate in adult workshops.
