Your journey to Sharjah starts at 9:30am, but be ready to get picked up at your hotel between 8:30am and 9am. Your exact pickup time will be noted when you reconfirm your tour with your tour provider. Take a ride in a comfortable vehicle for about 30 minutes from Dubai to Sharjah. Once you reach Sharjah, the first stop is the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization. Learn all about Islamic culture here, including different aspects of the Islamic faith. The museum houses 1,400 years of Islamic art and artifacts, so you’ll want to take a look at the ceramics, woodwork, textiles, and jewelry while you’re there. Next up, your tour takes you to Souk Al Arsa, one of the oldest souks in the United Arab Emirates. This marketplace allows you to shop for herbs, spices, jewelry, and textiles just like the Persians and Indians did 200 years ago. During your time here, you'll have the opportunity to shop for souvenirs (own expense). Afterward, make a quick visit the King Faisal Mosque to admire its architectural beauty. Snap some photos of the mosque before going to Souk Al Markazi, one of the nation’s largest souks. Souk Al Markazi has about 600 shops full of antiques, carpets, gifts, electronics, gold, gems, and jewelry. Your tour ends with a ride back to your Dubai hotel.
