AJMAN, 1st September, 2016 (WAM) — In a bid to inform students about the Emirate of Ajman’s famous touristic destinations and increase awareness of local tourism, the Ajman Tourism Development Department, ATDD, has organised 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.
ATDD provided specialised tour guides to offer insights about each landmark, including the Al Zorah project, Ajman Museum, the traditional fish market, Ajman Corniche and other popular tourist attractions, ending their journey back at the university.
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 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 at the academic level.”
The students thanked ATDD for organising the tour, with many of them expressing a desire to recreate the experience along with their family and friends.
