Explore the "Blue Souk"
Sharjah’s Central Souq, popularly known as the Blue Souq, is technically in another Emirate, but it’s worth the short drive (about 40 minutes from downtown) for the chance to explore endless shops full of rugs, antiques (some genuine, some a little less so), and other treasures. You won’t find Prada or Chanel at the Blue Souq, but it’s where the locals go when they want to buy a rug and are willing to spend some time chatting with the rug salesman over a cup of tea, gently haggling over the price.
