Featured Hotels in Sharjah
Set amidst the breathtaking landscapes of the southern shorelines of the Persian Gulf lays the sun kissed city of Sharjah. An ancient trade point and historic city of political significance, Sharjah is now a city that blends old world charm with modern progress in a cosmopolitan setting. As the third largest city in the United Arab Emirates, after Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Sharjah is also home to the royal palace of the city's monarch.

Renowned as the cultural capital of the UAE, Sharjah is a melting pot of history, art and architecture. Owing to its rich heritage Sharjah has a staggering seventeen museums in the city alone, including the Sharjah Heritage Museum, Traditional Jewellery Museum, Sharjah Archaeology Museum and the Numismatics Museum. The Maritime Museum and the Sharjah Natural History Museum and Desert Park are also worth the visit in addition to Arabian Wildlife Centre, and sprawling Aljazeera Park. The Sharjah Science Museum is another must-see attraction as it is the sole interactive museum in all of the UAE offering a wide range of activities including studying of the cosmos as well as opportunities to produce cartoons.
