Sharjah Gold Souq - Sharjah UAE

Bilal Ahmad Siddiqi

Sharjah is one of the seven Emirates the United Arab Emirates consists of. It's location next to largely growing Dubai has made Sharjah the place to live for people working in Dubai. Therefore the population is growing fast, now it's about 700 000 inhabitants.

The city is an interesting combination of old and new. Sharjah has a lot of old, big mosques as well as new shopping centres and office buildings reaching up to 50 metres and up. Sharjah is a green city with a lot of parks.

It also houses the biggest Art museum in the Gulf. Another interesting place to visit is the old market area, where you can buy everything from carpets to living animals.

Sharjah has grown a lot also as a tourist city and has many great hotels next to the sandy beaches of the Gulf. Due to religious reasons there is no alcohol served in Sharjah, but Dubai is only 30 minutes away, if you fancy for a glass of wine with your dinner. As a whole, Sharjah is a bit more restricted Emirate than the modern Dubai.
