Sharjah City Guide And Airport Transfer Service

Sharjah, one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, is an appealing and safe destination with a rich history and culture, warm and friendly people, and year-round sunshine. While its diverse landscape includes majestic mountains, rolling dunes, and pristine beaches, its culture is a unique blend of east and west. Fishing and pearling, in addition to general trading, have played important roles in the Sharjah economy, but the pearling industry faded in the 1940s due to strong competition from Japanese cultured pearls.

There are attractions and amenities for all types of travelers here, including fascinating museums, ancient souks, wildlife centers, and off-road adventures, as well as modern shopping malls, luxurious hotels and resorts, delectable dining, and thrilling entertainment venues.

 Sharjah's strategic location and abundance of natural resources have aided the emirate's economic growth. Sharjah was home to the first international airport in the Arabian Gulf, built by the British in 1932, as well as the region's first container port, builtin 1976. Sharjah has some of the UAE's most diverse landscapes, ranging from the bustling capital city on the Arabian Gulf through the interior desert and over the Hajar Mountains to the pristine beaches of its east coast enclaves.

The British maintained relations with the Trucial States, the former name of the United Arab Emirates, until 1971, when the country gained independence. Sharjah is ruled by His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi since 1972. The discovery of oil in 1972 and the start of natural gas drilling in 1990 provided new sources of income for Sharjah, allowing the emirate to rapidly develop into the successful cultural and business hub that it is today.

However, due to Sharjah's limited oil and gas resources, the economy has been diversified to include manufacturing, health care, environmental protection, tourism, transportation, and logistics. The Sharjah government has established two economic free zones and increased investment opportunities in the emirate in recent years.

Excavations in Sharjah's Mleiha area show that humans were present during the Neolithic Period, the Bronze Age, and especially the Iron Age. Sharjah as a geographical entity has a long history, with archaeological evidence of human civilization dating back at least 10,000 years. From the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries, European powers such as Portugal, Holland, and the United Kingdom were interested in Sharjah as they competed for control of trade routes between the Mediterranean Sea and India. 

Sharjah is mentioned on a 1666 Dutch map, which pinpoints the locations of Sharjah towns Calba, Gorfocaan, and Dabba, as well as an 1820 British Royal Navy  Sharjah map of the walled city. A treaty signed in 1820 between Britain and local sheiks gave the British control of the Arabian Gulf trade routes. Ptolemy, the Greek geographer, included Sarcoma on one of his maps almost 600 years later, demonstrating international recognition of the Sharjah area.

Sharjah is recognized internationally as a cultural destination as a result of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Mohammed Al Qasimi, a member of the Federal Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah. The honors recognize Sharjah's leadership role in not only supporting the arts, but also in increasing understanding and appreciation of the emirate's history, architecture, traditional culture, and Islamic roots.

Travel stress is a mental strain and pressure caused by travel. Although travel has many positive aspects and benefits, travel stress can cause people to have a negative vacation experience. Overplanning and prepping before you leave home is the best way to avoid the most inconvenient headaches while traveling around the world. While you can't predict what will happen, you can have a backup plan or course of action ready if you find yourself in a jam.
