Important notes

First. In the UAE there are rather high tourist and hotel taxes, we wrote about them in detail in the article "Tourist taxes in the UAE". Therefore, in the course of this article, we will indicate prices without taxes, but in brackets prices taking into account taxes.

Second. The concept of "All Inclusive" in different emirates and hotels in the UAE understand differently. Somewhere alcoholic beverages are included in AI, and it happens that there is no. Somewhere included all food, and somewhere only breakfast, lunch and dinner, and snacks for an additional fee. Read our article "All Inclusive in Arab Emirates".

– affordable prices for rest in hotels of the first line;

– In the emirate there is your water park Dreamland, which is cheaper than water parks Dubai.

– In addition to the above water park, there are almost no other entertainment in the emirate. Even in the local largest Mall of UAQ shopping center there is only a cinema and a small platform with several slot machines and a children’s soft labyrinth;

– There are no public transport in the emirate, and it will have to move everywhere only on a taxi that is consumed for a wallet;

– get to Dubai to view the main attractions of the UAE, expensive or tedious. Buses between Dubai and Umm El Caivine do not go. Need to go by taxi or catch a backway bus, and without warranty that you will catch. Details in our article "How to get from Umm-El Caivine to Dubai";

– Long and expensive transfer from the airport to the hotel: from Dubai Airport by taxi – 150-180 Dirhams, time – more than an hour. Current course, see our article "What Money in the UAE";

– Infrastructure in the Emirate is well developed, which is a consequence of a small population. Shops, cafes and restaurants few.

If you decide to rest in Umm-El Caivine, we recommend looking at the hotel Barracuda Beach Resort. It is very well located – right next to him is the water park, near the local Aeroslob, where the main local attraction is located – an abandoned aircraft IL-76. The hotel has a large alcohol store Barracuda Wine Shop.

Emirate Ajman

Only two – Ajman Saray and Ramada Beach provide the All Inclusive system.

Pluses of the Emirate Ajman:

– affordable prices for hotels on the first beach line;

– Since the density of the population in Ajman is relatively large, the infrastructure here is well developed – a lot of cafes, restaurants, shops, there is a large at the standards of Ajman CITY Center AJMAN TC;

– A set of local attractions is very modest: Fort Ajman, Fish Market, shipyard boats Dow. All this is enough for one day, then it will be boring;

– Go to Dubai to see the best sights of the UAE, on a taxi is expensive, by bus E400 long. Once for vacation you can go, but it will be tedious several times. Details in our article "How to get from Ajman to Dubai";

If you want to relax in Ajman, but the budget presses, then look at the hotel Oyo 194 Mermaid Beach. Here you can stay for 50 (60) dollars per night. That’s just a tour here at the time of publication this article can not be purchased, with our tour operators they do not work.

Emirate Fujaira

Fujaier is primarily famous for being on the Indian Ocean, and not on the shores of the Persian Gulf, like the other six Emirates. The Fujaira region is divided into the North and South (approximately in half) a small area of ​​Fokkan, which belongs to Sharjah.
