AJM

THE EMIRATE OF

The Emirate of Ajman is one of the seven states constituting the United Arab Emirates. With an area of just 260 square kilometres (100Â sq mi), Ajman is the smallest of the emirates by area. Its seat of government is the city of Ajman, aî…šer which it is named. The emirate is bordered on its north, south, and east by the Emirate of Sharjah. It has a population of some 240,000.

|4|


FOCUS ON THE EMIRATES

MAN Located on the coast of the Persian Gulf, Ajman also controls two small inland exclaves: Manama and Masfut, both of which are primarily agricultural. Approximately 95% of the population of the emirate resides in the city of Ajman, which forms part of the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area. Ajman is ruled by Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi of the Al Nuaimi tribe. The Crown Prince of the Emirate is Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi. While there is a known Ajami tribe extant in modern Saudi Arabia, the name of the city and Emirate of Ajman could also come from the Arabic 'Ajm', or 'Persians' or alternatively a diminutive of Oman 'Ayman'.

Ajman is the smallest of the United Arab Emirates, covering only 260 square kilometres (100 sq mi). The city lies on the coast of the Persian Gulf and is home to some 95% of the emirate's population. In 2010, the population was 262,000, of which 16% was Emirati according to official statistics.

As well as the city of Ajman, the emirate also encompasses two landlocked exclaves, Manama and Masfut. Manama is in the plains at the foothills of the Hajjar Mountains some 60 km east of Ajman city, while Masfut is in the mountains proper, some 110 km south of Ajman City. The city and main territory of Ajman is bordered to the landward side by Sharjah, while Manama shares borders with Sharjah and Fujairah. Masfut borders Oman, Dubai (the village and exclave of Haa) and Ras Al Khaimah. Both Manama and Masfout are fertile regions and support widespread agricultural development.

|6|


FOCUS ON THE EMIRATES

Most of the main emirate's landmass is developed, with extensive suburbs stretching out almost to the E311 arterial road, with light industrial zones and warehousing towards the north east. Ajman's creek has been dredged and walled to form a port area and this is the location for the Ajman Port and the Ajman Free Zone. Ajman has a thriving textile industry, and is home to some 15% of the UAE's manufacturing firms.

The Red Fort was built during Sheikh Humaid bin Abdul Aziz Al Nuaimi (1910-1928), and consists of four rooms in two towers. The fort was restored in 1986 and a third tower was added to the two older towers. Gravel and red plaster were used in the construction of the walls of the fort and hence it was named the Red Fort. Sandalwood was used in the beams and supports for the construction of the roofs.

The small areas of sandy desert outside the city support scant seasonal growths of wild grasses and scrub, ghaf trees and occasional date palms. Acacia and ghaf trees are to be found in abundance in Manama, which has long been established as an agricultural centre. Date palm groves and fruit tree plantations are characteristic of Masfut.

Manama museum, opened on 2 December 2012, is located in Al Mareer Fort, which was originally built during the reign of Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi (1873 – 1891). A yard overlooks seven rooms and a well. The fort is surrounded by palm trees irrigated by the old Manama Falaj. Located on the Ajman Corniche, the square Al Murabaa Watchtower was built in the 1930s.

Places of interest Ajman Fort was formerly the residence of the Ruler of Ajman but turned over to Ajman Police as their barracks in 1967. It was subsequently converted into a museum and houses an eclectic collection of artefacts and exhibitions of traditional life in Ajman.

Ajman's busy corniche is a popular evening and weekend destination for families and features a number of fast food outlets, coffee shops and stalls. It is home to the 'Outside Inn', a popular watering hole with expatriates, as well as to a number of hotels, including the Ramada, Ajman Palace, the Kempinski and the luxurious Ajman Saray.

SightSeeing the Corniche Much of the activity in Ajman is concentrated along the Corniche and its aractive 16km stretch of beach overlooking the Arabian Gulf. The Corniche boasts a wide variety of shopping options, including souks, markets and malls, both traditional and fast food restaurants, cafes and shops. Al naseem nature Reserve A natural area, currently under development in Manama area. Al Naseem Nature Reserve is expected to showcase the beauty of the region's natural landscape while protecting its rarest flora and fauna. Al Zorah nature Reserve With a 7km waterfront, embracing the changing shades of the Arabian Gulf Sea and a 2km silky and pure sand beach, A Zorah natural reserve allows discovering yet other natural wonders: lucent lagoons, creeks and an inviting natural mangrove forest swarming with 58 bird species. helio Park Located at Sheikh Zayed Street in Al Helio district. Also known as Al Helio Park, Helio Park is an outdoor araction on the outskirts of Ajman. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays are family days, when it is open to men as well as women and children. Al Rashidiya Park Located at Badr Street, it is a large and popular family park covering 40,000 sqm with a variety of play facilities, open green spaces, a cafe and plenty of seating areas. The park is for women and children only. Masfout Discover the rugged landscape of the Hajar Mountains – a hiker's dream and a refreshing escape from the city heat. Less than two hours away from the city centre is the tiny Ajman enclave of Masfout . Taking the Dubai-Haa Road will involve a couple of checkpoints as the road passes through an Oman outpost, so take your passport with you; alternatively, use the Sharjah-Kalba Road. Both routes pass through some fantastic rolling dunes before reaching the peaceful foothills of the Hajar Mountains.

CultuRe & heRitAge the Red Fort The Red Fort was built during the time of Sheikh Humaid bin Abdul Aziz Al Nuaimi, and consists of four rooms and two towers, each made of two rooms. In 1986, following instructions from HH Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, a complete restoration of the fort was completed and a third tower was added to the two older towers. Gravel and red plaster were used in the construction of the walls of the fort and hence it was named the red fort. Sandal wood was used in the beams and supports for the construction of the roofs. The fort is completely surrounded by trees from all directions and a well is located close to the fort that was used in drinking water extracted from it. Ajman equestrian Club Unsurprisingly, Ajman is extremely proud of its equestrian heritage, and visitors are invited to saddle up at the Ajman Equestrian Club. It houses more than 100 well-trained Arabian horses and oers a range of lessons and riding activities. Expert trainers are on hand to oer instruction in a number of languages, and even total beginners can try their hand at the sport and rent the necessary livery on-site. Both group and private lessons are available, costing between Dhs.40 and Dhs.100, and for advanced riders there are courses in show jumping and dressage. The perfect way to stay active in the sun. www.ajmantourism.ae

LOTUS EV

PeRFORMAnCe The exquisite 3.5-litre V6 engine has been modified significantly to achieve the supercar performance of the Evora 400. Its induction system has been supplemented by a revised supercharger and a water-to-air chargecooler, that raises power to an outstanding 400 hp (406 ps).

| 36 |

Select the first of the its six, close-ratio, manual gears and the acceleration is viscerally exciting. In fact, the automatic version is even swier off the mark, its performance sharpened by the Race seing in the Dynamic Performance Management system. A V-max of 186 mph (300 kph), experienced from within the Evora 400’s purposefully equipped and comfortable cabin, provides proof positive that Lotus makes supercar ownership not only extremely focused but also both entrancing and giant-killing.


VORA 400

Weight The Lotus Evora 400 is the fastest Lotus road car of the New Millennium. Its lightweight chassis has been lowered and widened to make cockpit entry and exit to the 2+2 composite body easy. The Evora 400 exudes the Lotus spirit of lightness and driving purity so succinctly. Despite producing 400 hp (406 ps) from its 3.5litre supercharged V6 engine, with its comfortable cabin displaying many new features, the overall kerbweight of the Evora 400 has been reduced by 42 kg over its forebear.

As a result, its exquisite power to weight ratio, combined with an aerodynamic package that maintains zero liî…š but increases downforce at high speeds, simply enhances its supercar appea

world luxury | DAILY | Issue 26 |

tORSiOn Underpinning the Evora 400 supercar is a brand new, eďŹƒcient, structurally rigid and low weight extruded and bonded chassis-tub. Based on more than 60 years of Lotus racing and sportscar developments, its torsional rigidity is outstanding.

| 38 |

As one of the strongest chassis available, it allows the suspension to work more eďŹƒciently, to provide unparalleled grip, amazing comfort, supercar dynamics and an overall balance that is totally engaging. Yet, it is 42 kg lighter than the outgoing Evora model, features more equipment and literally doubles the downforce available.


AeRODYnAMiCS The Evora 400 is Lotus‘s fastest model, worthy of supercar status. It is stylishly aractive, beautifully designed, yet purposefully aerodynamic. From its aggressive new front cooling intakes, past the fascinating lateral graphics, to its more prominent rear, 5-blade airflow diffuser and new three-element tail spoiler, it is every inch the purpose-built supercar.

Yet, because it is a Lotus, the Evora 400 features ‘zero-li’, although the aero package increases downforce by 23 kg at V-max, to make more efficient use of its immensely capable road manners. www.lotuscars.com
