Default Al Ain

Does anyone know if it possible to drive into Oman from Al Ain? Is there a border there that you cross?

We're in Abu Dhabi and are thinking of doing a weekend there and just trying to figure out the quickest route.

Is there much to see in that part of Oman i.e. close to Al Ain?

Any input would be much appreciated! :-)

Buraimi adjoins Al Ain and is in Oman. There is a border crossing point.

Thanks very much.

there was talk that the buraimi crossing was changing to a locals only one, but there is another crossing in al ain whos name escapes me. There isnt much in Oman that close to the border but a couple of hours drive gets you to Nizwa and Jabal Shams
