Al-Ain Hili Oasis palms

The Hili Oasis is just outside Al-Ain on the road from Dubai. Here we are looking into the oasis under the shade of the palm trees, which are irrigated by water hoses. Through the palm leaves is visible a blue sky.

The oasis provides a taste of traditional life in the Emirates, mostly unchanged apart from the use of hose pipes in addition to traditional 'falaj' or water channel.
