Sharjah City Centre
As the largest population centre in country's third biggest emirate, Sharjah city centre is a fascinating mix of the modern and traditional. The city has been developed hugely in the last 20 years, not least due to the discovery of oil in the region. However, Sharjah still retains a strong commitment to its traditional Islamic values and the successful preservation of the area’s local heritage can be seen in abundance throughout the city centre.
For the best of both worlds, a beach hotel in Sharjah offers the calm tranquillity of a waterside resort just a short journey from the bustling city centre. With guest services such as complimentary shuttles, specialised tours and excursions and private taxi hire, there is no better base from which to explore Sharjah than the Radisson Blu Resort.
