The National newspaper is a terrific daily paper. It costs 2 dirhams Sunday to Friday. The Saturday edition comes with a colour supplement magazine and costs 3 dirhams. You will pay an extra dirham if you buy the paper in the shop at the Hilton Hotel.
The journalism is excellent. The Arts and Books section which appears most days is always a good read. I was so impressed one day that I emailed the Arts and Books Editor to complement her and her team.
The paper has a full-time correspondent living in Al Ain who reports on events and crime here (“though there’s not much of that!” he told me recently.
