Living in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi
A one and a half hour drive from Abu Dhabi city, Al Ain is one of the world's oldest permanently inhabited settlements, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Al Ain is fed by natural springs and set among oases and plantations, garnering it the nickname 'Garden City'. It is the largest inland city in the United Arab Emirates, the fourth-largest overall (after Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah), and the second-largest in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
The UAE has a very significant expat community, making up almost 90% of the total population with English widely spoken. The combination of international influences and a strong commitment to local heritage has created an intriguing mix of new and old. A more liberal country, foreigners are free to practice their own religion and dress code.
