Sharjah, the capital city of the Emirate of Sharjah, is known for its arts and culture rather than the glamour of neighboring Abu Dhabi or Dubai. The Museum of Islamic Civilization, Al Noor Mosque and the Sharjah Art Museum are just a handful of the attractions Sharjah has to offer guests.
Art lovers will enjoy the unique Islamic art found at the Sharjah Calligraphy Museum and the Traditional Jewelry Museum, while nature fans will want to visit the Sharjah Aquarium and the Arabian Wildlife Center.
If you love shopping, Souk Al Arsah and Matajer Al Quoz Mall will not disappoint. If you are looking for a game to watch, consider watching a thrilling cricket match at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
In the summer, Sharjah s temperatures can reach around 120 degrees, with lows around 80 degrees. You can fly to Sharjah easily via the Sharjah International Airport (SHJ) or the Dubai International Airport (DXB).
By car, Sharjah is adjacent to Dubai and is easy to reach with Highway E11. Sharjah s bus terminals are mostly on the city s coast, so be prepared to grab a taxi to get there. Just bring some change with you for the tollbooths. Be on the lookout for the Ramadan and Eid Exhibition and the Mideast Watch and Jewelry Show.
