With a great deal of things to do in Abu Dhabi and Dubai one can conveniently end up missing the existence of Sharjah assuming it’s merely a neighboring emirate where the residents of UAE work and live. Upon exiting Dubai, you will find the skyline clustered with towering high rises, that is when you’ll know you are in Sharjah and once you go further in to the center, it is the place where the heart of this emirate lies. Beneath the surface of the residential area that welcomes you upon arriving in Sharjah lies a city that has plenty of things to offer for you to see and do. This city is also the only emirate in the U.A.E. with land in both the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Gulf, thus, rightfully known as the peal of the Gulf. You’ll be surprised to know that Sharjah has more preserved heritage spots in the U.A.E than those in Dubai and Abu Dhabi combined, hence, making it best emirate for sightseeing with a ton of things to do for families visiting with kids.
