Sharjah Tourism Travel Quiz

Chase the taste of farm fresh dates with a scenic road trip

Drive down palm tree lined roads to Al Dhaid in the Central Region, where this family-owned farm produces the region’s choicest Mejdool dates and dried dates. The Al Hashmia Date Farm is one of the few places to visit in the UAE, where you can learn all about the cultivation of dates and gather them from the date palm yourself.

The destination is near a popular camel racing track, dunes for trekking and a souk for shopping. Make the most of your trip in the Central Region by visiting the destinations close by.
