Sharjah Sights & Souks
USD59 per person
Discover the sights and unique atmospheric souks of Sharjah, the Capital of Islamic Culture.
Less glitzy than its opulent neighbour, Sharjah, the ‘Pearl of the Gulf’, offers a more cultural oriented experience. Home to the King Faisal Mosque, one of the largest in the Emirates, it also boasts the Heritage Museum, where you can embark on an exceptional journey through Sharjah's rich and colourful culture.
Then it’s time to sharpen your bargaining skills. Stroll through the Al Arsah Souk, a quintessential Arabic marketplace and arguably the oldest market place in the UAE. The open-air Iranian Souk is filled with rows of shops selling nuts, spices, and saffron imported from Iran, while the Souk Al Markazi is a treasure trove of carpets, jewellery, handicrafts, and much more.
