Sharjah is a city and Emirate immediately north of Dubai. The city has all the trappings of modern development such as the Al Majaz Waterfront, Al Qasba and the Eye of the Emirates, but it also retains its rich history which has been recognised by UNESCO. Sharjah has 17 museums, and landmarks like the Al Hisn Fort along with the mosques of Al Noor and King Faisal, illustrate a rich local heritage.
Hiring a car in Sharjah also means you can explore popular tourist attractions like the Sharjah Desert Park, which lies a short distance inland from the city centre.
Most visitors to Sharjah will head for at least one of the city's museums. The Museum of Islamic Civilisation, the Maritime Museum and the Heritage Museum are all popular choices. Those hiring a car in Sharjah should drive to the coast around the Al Khan Lagoon; here you'll find the modern amenities of the recent Al Qasba development, with plenty of shops and restaurants to take your fancy.
Drive further towards the coast and visit the Sharjah Aquarium, then head across Flag Island to the famous Blue Souq for some authentic local flavour. Those who rent a car in Sharjah, can drive down the coast to Dubai in less than 20 minutes.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
