  • Nice relaxing peace quiet area. Felt like old days where I can hear birds in the greens. Nice breeze
  • We visited here with a rental car from Abu Dhabi's AUH. The lovely parkland surrounding this Bronze Age(3rd C BC) settlement/tombs is used for recreation/picnics by the residents far more than visitors seeking archeological information. The recreated Grand Tomb along with the bases of 2 others show how this community treated ancestral burials, while the settlement ruins show very little.The Al Ain Nat Mus displays hundreds of artifacts(stone vessels, pottery, beads, etc) found here and bring the actual site to life. The cool tranquil Hili Oasis which has been cultivated for 4000 years is 2km southwest. We drove into the maze of narrow lanes inspecting the canals and finding a large mud brick ruins.All 3 sites as a package are very worthwhile.
