With museums, light shows and Arabic architecture, Sharjah is the cultural heart of the UAE.

Less than an hour away from Dubai, the Emirate of Sharjah is another up-and-coming tourism hub which is experiencing major growth.

Along with must-do activities in the UAE, like going on a desert safari or taking a dhow cruise, Sharjah offers a range of museums and historical sites for visitors to explore, and is widely considered as the nation’s cultural capital.

The yearly Sharjah Light Festival illuminates the city’s landmarks, with light and sound installations projecting incredible images and animations on the facades of buildings.

Sharjah’s attractive Al Majaz Waterfront is a lakeside hub for food, with restaurants offering local cuisine and delightful dishes from around the globe.

Sharjah also offers a range of opulent hotels and resorts with every amenity imaginable.
