In a bid to educate students about the
emirate of Ajman’s famous touristic destination and increase awareness of local
tourism, the Ajman Tourism Development Department (ATDD) has organized city
sightseeing tours for students of Ajman University.
The two-day tour coincides with the opening
of the new academic year and a total of 400 students visited the emirate’s main
popular attractions and heritage landmarks on board Ajman’s city sightseeing
tour buses. The students were divided into two groups and tours were conducted
in the morning and in the afternoon.
ATDD provided specialized tour guides to
offer insights about each landmark. Some of the places visited by the students
are the Al Zorah project, Ajman Museum, the traditional fish market, Ajman
Corniche and other popular tourist attractions, ending their journey by
returning safely to Ajman University.
HE Faisal Al Nuaimi, General Manager of
ATDD said: “As we start the new academic year, it is vital that our students
learn about the emirate’s main popular attractions. Our objective is to
encourage the students to promote tourism and contribute to the emirate’s
sustainable development. Letting the students discover the beauty of Ajman is
part of our vision for Ajman 2021 to create a happy society that is involved in
building our country and this should start in the academic level.”
The students praised ATDD in organizing the
sightseeing tour, and lauded the excellent level of services that was provided
while on board of Ajman tourism bus, pointing out that it was more than a wonderful
journey, as they earned an opportunity to discover the beauty of Ajman, with
utmost motivation to enter the new academic year.
Many of the students expressed their
desires to recreate this remarkable tourism experience along with their family
