Ajman, is considerably less known among foreign tourists who book UAE flights in hordes to enjoy winter sun or engage in retail therapy due to the numerous cheap shopping deals on offer. But as it handles less tourist traffic, this part of UAE can provide the true feel of the Arab world unlike the leading hotspots of Dubai or Abu Dhabi.

However, the Kempinski here is among the best hotels in the UAE with a friendly staff and a few popular restaurants nearby that serve up cuisines from around the world. The quality of service at this hotel is sure to leave travellers gloating on their decision to book flights destined for the country. Besides, alcohol is also available though one requires a license to buy liquor in many of the liquor shops of the UAE.

There are plenty of shopping options too for those booking flights destined to UAE though there’s nothing that can compare with Dubai Mall, but one is sure to get many bargains at the malls and shopping centres in this emirate. Most popular retail therapy destinations among travellers booking air tickets to this part of the nation include the City Centre, Dana Mall, Ajman Industrial Area and many others. Those seeking to relax can look forward to fishing trips and boat rides that can be gotten for cheap and no need to book these early either as there is practically no tourist rush even during winter months.
