NeverSettleForLessTravels: Al Ain Zoo

Based on my previous blog entry, I already mentioned that me and my parents went on Al Ain Zoo. Yes! Aside from tall buildings, malls and other man-made attractions that you can found in UAE, there's also a sanctuary for wildlife animals. 


Al Ain Zoo is the biggest zoo you can found in UAE, which is located in the foothills of Jebel Hafeet Mountains in Al Ain. It was established to create a natural habitats for animals to live freely. 


This zoo became famous because it takes a special initiative to breed endangered species for animals like Arabian antelope, deer, African Antelope such as oryx, eland, gazelle and lechwe. It also hosts white lions, black and spotted jaguars, leopards and pumas. There's also a place for reptiles and bird species. The gorilla, monkeys, giraffes, and hippopotamus are must visited too.


Al ain zoo is the perfect place to bring your kids because it conducts interactive activities like feeding the giraffes and riding a camel which the kids will surely enjoy. At night, there's a 30 minute bird show featuring predatory and night birds. There's a plenty of green public places for picnics and playgrounds, cafeteria, souvenier shops and a train tour that they will enjoy. 


If you're looking for a true family destination, providing entertainment and learning experiences in a natural outdoor environment, Al Ain zoo is the perfect place for you. It is just one hour and a half drive from Dubai. But before you can enter the zoo, you need to pay for an entry ticket. It cost 20 AED for adult and 10 AED for children between ages 3 - 12.

Overdue


A long overdue outfit post from last year's OOTD. You heard it right! This was one of my throwback post. As you know, I've been inactive last year in terms of blogging but I still shoot some pictures for my OOTDs and I want to share it with you guys.


This was taken last February 2014 when me and my family went in Al Ain. For a short trivia, Al Ain is not part of Dubai, but it was located in Abu dhabi. I will discussed it more on my travel diary, you check it out on my next post. Going back, it was spring season when we visited the place, wherein winter is over and summer is coming. This throwback outfit post is just in time for this year spring season. I hope you guys could get some tips and ideas on this blog entry.


Furthermore, I usually wear jeans on my work, and I decided to skip it for a day. I opted myself to wear maxi skirt that day coz it was spring season. It's the comfiest outfit I could wear during those time. It doesn't make make me feel too cold nor too hot. Comfiest indeed! 


At the same time, UAE is strict with dress code. There are some places in UAE were they prohibited sleeveless and mini skirts, unlike in Dubai which is now a free city. Also, it's best to respect the place we are visiting by following their social norms even though we are just a foreigner on this country.
