"How about birdwatching?" Top 5 Page for this destination United Arab Emirates Off The Beaten Path Tip by Faiza-Ifrah

  Desert, marshes and mountain.
by Faiza-Ifrah

Travel to the sprawling green oasis city of Al Ain (summer capital of Abu Dhabi). This is located about 150 kms from both Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Explore its off the beaten path tourist attractions like Hili Archaeological Fields and Ain al Faidah Resort with Jebel (Mount) Al Hafeet in the background shown here. In the winters, the resort is teeming with birdlife. The visitors can rent out chalets/cottages for prolonged stay, bbq in its gardens, pedal boat in the channels, bird watch and travel to the Mount, which is the tallest in the UAE.
