This tour will introduce you to the Emirate of Sharjah, also known as the 'City of Culture'. In this emirate, one of the landmarks to photographers is the King Faisal Mosque, currently the largest mosque in the Emirates. We continue then to the renovated Fort of Sharjah, which was originally built in 1820 and used to be the Residence of the ruling family. The Al Naboodah House, the museum for cultural heritage is the next place to see. This district is also known as the museum area. In the Islamic Museum you will have an interesting introduction in all aspects of the Islamic culture. A quick stroll to the adjacent souks of 'Al Arsa' and to the 'Majarrah Souk' will take you to our next venue which is the souk 'Al Markazi' – a treasure chest full of carpets, jewellery and handicrafts. Here you will certainly find your right souvenir.
After a short stop for shopping at the Gold Centre, our tour continues to the Emirate of Ajman and its famous historical museum. Here you will have a short briefing with excellent displays about the Emirates past before the oil was discovered. Visit the old Dhow-building yard and see how these Dhows (wooden sailing boats) are still built today in the tradition of the past. This concludes our tour before heading back to Dubai.
