People & Places

  • The Ajman Tourism Development Department (ATDD) has announced the launch of two classification programmes for desert camps and tourism villages, the first of its kind in the UAE. This move is in line with Ajman Vision 2021 to promote the emirate’s growing tourism industry. Desert camps for day use and overnight will fall under one category, while tourism villages will have different categories of five-star, four-star and three-stars based on the facilities and services that they will offer to tourists and residents.
