Trip to Umm Al-Nakhil

Al Ahsa (Arabic: ٱلْأَحْسَاء‎, romanized: Al-Aḥsāʾ, locally pronounced al-Ḥasāʾ (Arabic: الحَسا‎)) is the largest governorate in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province, named after the Al-Ahsa Oasis. The name Al-Ahsa is also given to the biggest city in the governorate, Hofuf. In Classical Arabic, ‘Ahsa’ means the sound of water underground. It has one of the largest oases in the world with world-renowned date palms[1] and, according to one author, the oases of Al-Hasa and Al Ain (in the UAE, on the border with Oman) are the most important in the Arabian Peninsula.[2] The oasis is located about 60 mi (97 km) inland from the Persian Gulf. All urban areas are located in the traditional oasis of Al-Hasa. In addition to the oasis, the county also includes the giant Empty Quarter desert, making it the largest governorate in Saudi Arabia in terms of area. The Empty Quarter has the world’s largest oil fields, and connects Saudi Arabia to Qatar, the UAE, and Oman. The Governorate’s population is over 1,100,000 (2010 estimate). In the past, Al-Ahsa belonged to the historical region known as Bahrain, along with Qatif and the present-day Bahrain islands.
