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.
