Sharjah Excursion

Getaway | City Break


Sharjah is an Emirate of UAE and a close neighbour to Dubai (it’s just a 15 minute drive from the centre of Sharjah to Dubai International Airport). The city overlooks the Arabian Gulf coastline that stretches for more than 16 kilometres, consisting of sandy beaches and built up areas. The central region combines lush green oases, with gravel plains and rolling red sand dunes. To the East the emirate reaches the Gulf of Oman coast where the landscape changes to a rocky coastline backed by high mountains. Historically, the east coast is full of archaeological sites dating back to as early as the secnd millennium, and forts built by the Portuguese in the 16th century were used to control the spice trade.

It is an emirate of contrasts where visitors can enjoy a holiday in the sun, discover traditional markets (souks) or visit modern shopping malls, explore the many heritage sites and museums, admire the majestic mosques, stroll around the lagoons, and experience the natural beauty of true Arabian deserts, mountains and seas.

Sharjah seamlessly is connected to Dubai and is visited as an excursion by those who are looking to explore other Emirates of UAE.
