Souq Al Qattara
Souq Al Qattara is situated in a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi’s green garden city and heritage heartland about 90 minutes from the capital city. Dating back to the mid-20th century and founded by the late Sheikh Shakhbut bin Sultan Al Nahyan on the palm-lined road linking Al Ain’s Al Qattara and Al Jimi oases, the historic hidden gem has been renovated and welcomes residents and visiting travellers to discover and explore.
A traditional handicrafts market takes place here every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from October to May, encouraging local families to preserve and promote Abu Dhabi’s heritage through the active production of traditional handicrafts. Spend some time here and pick up authentic mementoes and great gifts for family and friends back home.
