Note the broad new avenues, particularly the one from the Sheikh Khalifa Hospital to the Al Humaidiyah Road: these are recent and speak of the economic well-being of Ajman. Not far from the old waterfront are the Ajman Centre — a trade fair and exposition favourite — and the Ajman Chamber of Commerce and Industry Tower. Not to be missed is the dhow building yard, the biggest in the United Arab Emirates.
From building traditional dhows to the larger trading boums, the ship yard also crafts the speedsters that take part in the annual Dubai Powerboat competition.
A mosque was built for the Late Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi by his son and the current Ruler of Ajman, His Highness Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi and it is another fine landmark of Ajman, as is the Ajman museum, housed directly in the old fort. The emirate’s mountain villages are Manama near Dhaid — which is the nearer — and Masfut which is located next to Hatta is a part of the Emirate of Dubai. Manama, which literally means the “sleeping/resting place”, also has a small old fort worth visiting while Masfut is known for its colourful marble.
