It is really amazing to have this wonderful date farm in the middle of the city. You will not feel like you are in a city. Really cool and wonderful.

Two hours drive inland into the UAE desert from Dubai. Stunning desert as you progress to arrive at this dry architectural landscape city set on and ancient oasis. In the raining season the locals bring out their 4 wheel drives and sand dune surf. Bizarre...More

When visiting this oasis, it's easy to forget you're in a place that's mostly desert here. Walking beneath the date palm trees and hearing the nearby streams from the irrigation channels (known as falaj) is like experiencing a mini sanctuary from the relentless heat. This...More
