Directions from Abu Dhabi to the Al Ain Municipality Theatre

(The Municipality Theatre is where the TEDxAlAin 2011 conference was held, and where some music concerts are held too.)

Drive from Abu Dhabi towards Al Ain. As you approach Al Ain you’ll see an exit with a sign showing an aircraft on it and saying ‘Airport’ or similar. Take this exit and carry on into the centre of Al Ain. It’s pretty much a straight line all the way to the venue.

Eventually, you’ll see the 2 towers on the left of Al Jimi Mall…
