Ajman-for attracting

Ajman, the smallest of the UAE members, is bordered by Sharjah and Umm al-Quwain. With an eye for attracting holidaymakers, one of the attractions here is traditional crafts, and visitors can appreciate the artistry involved in converting gold bars into Bedouin jewellery. For a brush with history, the Mowaihat archaeological site is worth a visit, as it is where a circular Umm al-Nar tomb was discovered – the first sign of Umm al-Nar habitation in the northern emirates. Here numerous soft stone and painted ceramic vessels have been found, as well as a number of other cultural artefacts, such as copper utensils and beads, all of which are on display at the Ajman Museum.
