SHARJAH HERITAGE TOUR

SHARJAH HERITAGE CITY TOUR


On this excursion, you explore the "Cultural Capital" of Sharjah, whose finely detailed cultural and educational landmarks give clear evidence of a modern city striving to keep its traditional values alive.
Highlights

Start with a drive to Sharjah for a visit to the Museum of Islamic Civilization, the first of its kind in the country. Several galleries display carefully restored artifacts from around the Muslim world, celebrating Islamic contributions to the artistic and scientific body of works such as instruments and working models of objects in ceramic, metal and textiles ranging from the 16th century onwards. Make a photo stop at Al Hisn Fort, a former residence of Sharjah's ruling Al Qasimi family. Then drive to the Al Arsah Souk, a quintessentially Arabian marketplace that is a treasure trove of silver jewellery, Bedouin handicrafts, Persian carpets and much more. After free time at the souk, your last photo stop is at the famed Buhaira Corniche, presenting a postcard-perfect view of the artificial lagoon with the exquisite Turkish-style Al Noor Mosque alongside. From here, you return to Dubai and the pier.
