Culture Capital 2014

Only 15 min from Dubai we reach the neighbouring, less famous, but most authentic emirate of Sharjah, which has been named the Islamic Culture Capital 2014. In 1998 it was chosen by UNESCO to be the Culture Capital of the Arab World.
Join me off the beaten track and let me introduce you to its history and culture. It's a hidden gem with lots to offer. There are 16 amazing museums to choose from, however I do realize museums are not for everyone. Sharjah is also the perfect place to shop for good bargains in the traditional souqs. You can find beautiful silver and gold jewellery, Pashmina scaves, home decor items, carpets etc
Our tour is private and we are flexible and spend a memorable day in Sharjah together.


Sharjah is the most traditional Emirate of the seven United Arab Emirates. It is the perfect place to get an idea how life was like before oil was discovered.

We will
-Visit the Heart of Sharjah, the original pearling and fishing village, which houses the Sharjah Heritage Museum and the Calligraphy Museum etc
-shop at Al Arsa Souq
-have an authentic rustic but delicious traditional Lunch and
-time for shopping at Blue Souq, which is much cheaper than the traditional markets in Dubai
