About Sharjah

Recently named as one of the top 10 Global Cities of the Future, Sharjah has one of the most diversified and dynamic economies in the Middle East.

Home to a varied and growing population, Sharjah also boasts a fast developing real estate market. Thanks to a government decision to sell property to all nationalities in 2014, the Emirate has seen investor interest from all over the Middle East and beyond.

The only Emirate to have a border with the other six Emirates of the UAE, Sharjah is a major magnet for tourists. From deserts to mountains, and souks to coastlines, it’s regarded as one of the most attractive destinations in the region.

Sharjah was named as the Islamic Cultural Capital of the Arab world in 2014, and UNESCO’s World Book Capital for 2019. The Emirate’s love of history and the arts is evident through its many museums, galleries and archaeological sites.
