Ajman, United Arab Emirates, is a city and emirate in the northern part of the United Arab Emirates. It is the smallest of the seven Emirates and receives few tourists compared to popular destinations in the country like Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Do not expect skyscrapers in Ajman, but rather a calm vibe. In the Ajman emirate you can find almost all popular activities in the United Arab Emirates, that are not related to a city (such as the malls and skyscrapers for which Dubai is famous).
Ajman’s main attraction is the Ajman Museum, which is located inside an old fort. Here you can see objects and read about the country’s history. Ajman also has a nice, wide sand beach. Booking your hostel in Ajman, United Arab Emirates, does not limit you to the sites in the city. One of the most popular activities to do is a desert safari, often by camel. Ajman is one of the best places in the UAE to book and start your desert safari. It is also possible to hire a quad or a four-by-four with driver and go sand-dune bashing.
Immersing yourself in the Ajman nature is more than desert safaris. The landscape at the emirate’s border with Oman is rather mountainous. There are some scenic trails at the foot of the mountain that are perfect for inexperienced hikers.
The most interesting area to book a hostel in Ajman, United Arab Emirates, is near the corniche at the creek. Here you find most restaurants and cafes. However, there are several vibrant areas, which may be too far to walk. Taxis are plenty in Ajman and you will probably want to go outside the city too, to explore the desert and mountains, so your Ajman, United Arab Emirates hostel’s location is not necessarily the first thing to consider when booking an Ajman, United Arab Emirates hostel. Day trips from Ajman to Dubai or Sharjah are possible. If you want to do this, you may also consider an Ajman, United Arab Emirates hostel close to the bus station.
