Al Ain is a fertile oasis city located approximately 160 kilometres east of the Abu Dhabi capital. Its name (“the spring” in Arabic) derives from its originally plentiful supply of fresh water, which makes its way underground across most of the plain lying before the Omani mountains – The Abu Dhabi tourist authority (ADTA) stage the 2012 show on 30th November – 2nd December. Well worth a visit especially as during late november the temperatures are down to a manageable 28’c during day time and dropping to 20’c during the night .
