I have finally, decided to go outside of the Big City and experience a quiet weekend.Living in Dubai is can be stressful and boring. All you see is almost the same everyday, the towering Burj Khalifa, the astonishing Atlantis in the Palm- yes, you’ll get used to it when you’re living in Dubai for almost 3 years. I decided to visit Ajman for the weekend. I booked a hotel which cost me AED 430. I opted to have a buffet breakfast. You’ll never know what surprises a place may bring so might as well start it off with a full breakfast. I took the usual Dubai taxi with the meter on. Running from Deira-Sharjah-Ajman, the fare had cost me 100aed plus a tip to the driver as a thank you for haggling with the traffic for me. I reached the hotel at night and went straight ahead to the reception. The lobby was packed with people, probably trying to unwind against the hustle and bustle of the city like me. I got my room key and headed to my room. I chose the higher floor for me to see how Ajman is from the top. I opened the door and saw that I booked a deluxe room, complete with a living room, dining area, a kitchen, 2 bathrooms and of course my room. It was fairly large but given that here in the UAE, people here take vacations with their families which will require more room especially for the kids. The first book that I picked-up was the room service menu. I ordered grilled chicken and waited 25 minutes for my meal to arrive while I was comfortably nestled on the couch. Ding dong! Ah yes! Finally, food. I enjoyed my grilled chicken with plain rice and some steamed vegetables seasoned with salt and pepper in front of the television. Nothing fancy but very relaxing.I was mesmerized on how peaceful Ajman was and how liberated the people are compare to Dubai when I was thinking that I will be going in a place that is remote. I stayed for a night in Ramada Hotel and Suites Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed St. which is 15 minutes away from their private beach. They have a free shuttle every 15 minutes to the beach and they also have a free shuttle going to Dubai.Timings may change without notice so you need to verify to the reception.I also went China Mall which my colleague told me that it’s a must visit coz you will find everything you need for a cheaper price.I checked the place but unfortunately most of the shops are closed as it’s Friday. I must go there again some other day to enjoy the beach and the sun. I still have 5 more emirates to visit and will keep you updated about my next travel experience.I suggest to visit the place and let me know what you think about it.
