Souqs and markets in Al Ain

Souk Al Qattara

Al Qattara Souq (AQS) (not the same as the Al Ain Souq) - historic souk renovated by the Abu Dhabi Culture and Tourism Authority and reopened end of 2012. AQS is a small traditional souk next to the Al Qatara Arts Center (Qatara, Katara) in the Al Qattara Fort, part of the Al Qattara Heritage Area. Has about a dozen stores with traditional UAE clothes, baskets, spices, trinkets, pots, etc. Also a few displays in the same area of traditional UAE heritage stuff - cafe, cooking, pottery, etc. Visit to see a bit of UAE history rather than to go and do your weekly grocery shopping. Go as early as possible in the morning during summer, very little shade, and shops have no airconditioning (?). An interesting place to visit if you're in or visiting Al Ain but on its own is not worth making a special trip from another emirate or country unless it has some particular significance for you.
