Sharjah Tourism Travel Quiz

Enjoy extraordinary experiences in the cultural capital of Arabia

With vibrant souks and inspiring art galleries to enlightening mosques and historic monuments, Sharjah is aptly named the UNESCO cultural capital for the Arab World. The Sharjah government, Sharjah Art Foundation and Sharjah Museums Authority have made incredible efforts to preserve and share Emirati history and heritage. Today, Sharjah has over 20 museums and galleries, featuring modern art, priceless paintings and Arabian artifacts that offer a comprehensive history of the UAE. The city also boasts several nature and adventure activities, including trekking and camping in nature reserves, water sports at nearly every Sharjah beach, and motorsports in the desert. This has led to the city receiving international recognition with visits from travellers around the world.

People from neighboring emirates especially travel here to explore the many places to visit in Sharjah at night. The iconic Sharjah Corniche, for instance, offers a beautiful nighttime view of the Arabian Gulf. Though Sharjah has seen a lot of growth and changes over the years, it was named a “Healthy City” by the World Health Organisation in 2015 for promoting health protection and sustainable development. For people in the UAE, Sharjah is also a preferred residential base with a wealth of family-friendly activities. From casual dining, cafe and leisure options to cultural programs and events, development in this city is focussed around family and children. As a result, parents in this city always have several options for things to do with kids.

The Sharjah Airport - the hub of the airline Air Arabia - is conveniently located close to the city for seamless travel. And with over 106 hotels and hotel apartments, the city is a prime tourism destination. Sharjah weather is warm and sunny all year round, with the best time to visit during the later half of the year.
