Sightseeing in Sharjah - what to see. Complete travel guide

The three pillars, on which Sharjah stands, are typical for the Emirates. These are oil and gas production, tourism and trading. This bustling eastern town amazes Europeans with its magnificent markets, which seem to be countless. Tenths of thousands of people are attracted by the two-kilometer long Al Wahda Road - the main shopping street of the town. It offers merchandise from all over the world, from the works of handicraft masters to branded products. All major supermarkets are also located here. Furniture stores of Sharjah are especially famous. First of all, we suggest looking at the products made by the local craftsmen, as they are famous for the quality and sophistication of their products. Among the markets of this place the most popular ones are Gold Souk in Al Yarmook, which is a true masterpiece of the oriental architecture.
Sharjah is called ‘the smiling emirate’ for a reason; its main distinguishing feature is friendly and welcoming atmosphere, so every traveler will feel himself a welcome guest. … Open
