  • From Dubai: Sharjah City Tour

    5. From Dubai: Sharjah City Tour

    This tour will take you to Sharjah, the "Pearl of the Gulf". A pivotal landmark to see during the tour is King Faisal Mosque, one of the largest mosques in the Emirates. You will visit the renovated Fort of Sharjah, the former residence of the ruling family built in 1820.  Then you'll proceed to wander through the adjacent souk "Al Arsa". Before returning, there's time to stroll and shop at souk "Al Markazi" – a treasure trove of carpets, jewellery and handicrafts.

    The half day trip to Sharjah was fantastic! Our driver, Mahir, picked us up on time from our hotel in downtown Dubai. We were given ample time, between 30 minutes to hour, to visit each of the highlighted stops in Sharjah. Our first stop was the immense and beautiful King Faisal mosque. The highlight of the trip was without a doubt the Heritage museum, which holds truly remarkable exhibits of the ancient Islamic world including the history, science, technology, commerce, and “Silk Road” trade from Islamic antiquity. One of our last stops was Al Arsa souk where we found numerous shops selling heavily discounted gold (bargaining is a must). We even had time to relax at one of the souk’s cafés to enjoy delicious karak tea (try it once)!! This excursion is definitely worth doing and provides a unique perspective of an entirely different emirate (Sharjah being one of 7 distinct Emirates) in contrast to the bustling and touristy areas of old/new Dubai and Jumeirah.
