Planes, train and automobiles… Getting to Sharjah is a relatively straightforward affair, with the emirate well served by international airlines and an excellent network of well-maintained roads. The city itself is easy to navigate, with many transport options – from bikes to buses to ferries and taxis – available.
Staying in the city
Sharjah has a wealth of hotels and serviced accommodation – ranging from high-end, five star luxury options to places a little easier on the pocket. We’ve picked just a handful in the Al Majaz district and surrounds – mostly within walking distance of where the Sharjah Fringe is happening.
While you’ll find cuisines from all over the world in Sharjah, we’re listing some of the best Emirati and Middle Eastern restaurants in the city. Modern Arabic cuisine is a blend of Moroccan, Tunisian, Iranian and Egyptian cooking styles, with a significant Lebanese influence. Grilled meat or fish, rice and bread feature heavily in most dishes.
