Thousands and thousands of tourists consider the United Arab Emirates every year for their well-earned international break, and it’s not hard to see why. The gorgeous weather, impeccable sunsets, crystal blue waters and delicious food is just the start. Aside from these beach-like destinations, the United Arab Emirates offers an insight into some of the world’s most luxurious destinations, where visitors can discover miles upon miles of city skyline, impressive skyscrapers and one-of-a-kind tourist attractions that dwarf some of the previous world’s best and biggest.

With so much on offer, it can be hard to decide where you want to visit. From Ajman to Abu Dhabi and Dubai to Fujairah, the Emirates all offer their unique charms, beautiful traditions and fantastic array of tourist attractions and activities to keep everyone entertained. United Arab Emirates holidays are so popular for this reason alone, but with so much choice, you may be wondering: where do I begin?

As a UAE tourist, you may be first attracted by the luxurious lifestyle and glamorous ways of Dubai. This Emirate alone attracts millions of tourists year, so you’d be in good company.

Why do people visit Dubai?

Boasting some of the most iconic modern sight-seeing spots on the planet, that includes the world’s tallest building the Burj Khalifa and the world’s biggest indoor shopping mall, Dubai is often described as the ultimate playground.

Attracting tourists from all corners of the globe, a visit to Dubai features on a lot of bucket lists, including ours. And whilst the Emirate is incredible, the popularity of the destination can often lead to its neighbouring Emirate’s to be overlooked, despite their benefits, attractions, and traditions. If you’re considering a United Arab Emirates holiday: don’t make your mind up about Dubai too quickly.

After all, like we said, there are six other Emirates to choose from. This begs the question: when you’re planning to visit the UAE, have you considered Ajman?

Here’s why you should visit Ajman…

Often described as the rising star of the United Arab Emirates, whilst Dubai provides glamour, luxury and some of the world’s finest experiences, if you’re wanting to experience an authentic and traditional side to the United Arab Emirates, a trip to Ajman is a must.

Not only will you discover welcoming locals, fascinating culture, beautiful sceneries, and impressive history, but you’ll also find some of the UAE’S best beaches. Ajman may be the smallest Emirate, but it’s got its hidden treasures.

What can I do on an Ajman holiday?

From relaxing at some of the UAE’S most luxurious resorts to sunbathing on gorgeous, golden beaches, if you’re looking for an escape with guaranteed sunshine and beautiful views, this is the place for you.

Ajman vs Dubai

With this information in mind, if you’re looking for nightlife and luxury, we definitely recommend you check out Dubai and everything that this sparkling Emirate has to offer.
