The bus dropped us off and we made our way into Sharjah to explore. We got lost pretty fast, but after a lot of walking we found the two markets we were interested in., Souq Al-Arsa is an older, smaller craft market, with lots of interesting little shops. While we were there, it was very empty, and it was obvious that some of the vendors were quite hungry for business.The other market we checked out was the Central Souq. This was a huge 3 story 2 building market, with lots of gold jewelry, electronics, textiles – everything you can imagine. This market was quite a bit busier. The opening hours made visiting a little difficult, as both markets shut down for most of the afternoon.
We also wandered by the plant and fish markets.
We easily got a bus back to Dubai, which dropped us off at a very different location, but still close to our hotel.
