This is the last souk of its kind in the UAE, east of Jebel Hafeet in Al Ain is an excellent opportunity to see camels up close, and to see and hear traders discussing the price and merits of their animals. There are some excellent photo opportunities, but be careful where you point your lens and always ask permission first.
People will try to sell you a tour around the pens, but feel free to walk around on your own. In the livestock section, watch locals arrive in pickups laden with goats and sheep, ready to do some hard bargaining.
