Good things come in small emirates

Welcome to the emirate of intrigue with elbow room to spare. Ajman holidays are the Middle East’s best-kept secret. Just a half-hour from Dubai Airport, this laid-back and budget-conscious enclave is as close as the UAE gets to a hideaway. The smallest of the emirates conceals 16km of perfect shoreline, an 18th century fort, a wetland centre, and a cityscape that hasn’t quite been transformed into the sprawling metropolis found next door. You’ll want to see it all, and Ajman hotels put you in the perfect spot to tour around this haven in the Arabian Gulf.
