Sharjah is one of the most beautiful cities of the UAE and it is also one of the seven Emirates.
Although historically it was the most important city in the area, with the rise of Dubai in the 80s, Sharjah was losing weight in this and has become a dormitory for many of the workers of Dubai. The cost of living and rentals in Sharjah are much lower than those in Dubai.
The 17 museums with which Sharjah counts make it considered by Unesco as the Cultural Capital of the Arab World.
Souk Al Arsah: Known as Souq Al Arsah, this small market is one of the most charming in the country. It is considered as the first market in the city.
Al-Hisn Fort: Built in 1820, this fort was originally the place of residence of the leaders of the emirate. Currently houses a small museum.
Central Souq: The central market consists of two large ships connected by an elevated bridge. In this market, you can buy gold, antiques, and carpets from Iran and other countries.
Promenade: The officially called Corniche has its charm although, if the visit is for the day, the truth is that you do not want to travel with the heat.
Al Noor Mosque: Although there are many mosques in Sharjah, Al Noor Mosque is our favorite, especially at night. It is located on the Corniche.
If you want more, you can visit the Souk Al Majarrah, the Archaeological Museum and the Sharjah Art Museum.
Although it could be included in “what to see”, the truth is that the “Desert Park” is located 28 kilometers from Sharjah and is a visit of interest in itself. More than 300,000 people travel every year to visit this place.
The Desert Park is made up of several museums: Sharjah Natural History Museum, Sharjah Botanical Museum (small botanical garden) and Arabian Wildlife Center (zoo with animals of the region).
The most important part of the Desert Park is the Arabian Wildlife Center, where you can see reptiles, rodents, birds, mammals and all kinds of animals that inhabit the Arab Emirates.
