The taste of the true Emirates is the taste of fresh camel milk, rich with vitamins and perfectly quenching thirst.
How to try fresh camel milk in Al Ain
Fresh camel milk is a traditional Bedouin drink, it is rich in vitamins and perfectly quenches thirst. You may try it at the colorful camel market in Al Ain - there is a special pavilion where you will be offered different variations of the drink: classic camel milk, and milk with cinnamon, rose and other ingredients.

Often, curious travelers are warned of possible surprises that may happen to those who first try this delicate drink. Because not every stomach, when it tastes camel milk for the first time, will be able to accept it easily.

According to Arabs, camel milk can warm you up in cold and cool you down in hot weather. They place it upon a pedestal and say it is a miracle elixir of youth, an aphrodisiac, a dish for the gods and a remedy from numerous ailments.
