Pearl Merchants and Palm Trees: A Self-Guided Audio Tour of Old Sharjah

Pearl Merchants and Palm Trees: A Self-Guided Audio Tour of Old Sharjah

Sharjah prides itself on being the steady-as-she-goes emirate, but don’t let that dissuade you. It's confident, worldly, multi-dimensional, interesting, and definitely less noisy than its cousin down the road. Join me on a wander down the shaded laneways and in and out of old houses and new spaces. Together we'll explore what remains of the old part of town. There are houses and mosques, museums and galleries, palm trees and pearl merchants, all waiting for you. You'll enjoy • peeking inside traditional houses • contemporary design inspired by Sharjah's craft heritage • souqs for shopping • hidden little alleyways. And you'll hear fun stories about • what you can do with your leftover goat hooves • who has a PhD in piracy studies • coral farming • how to order the perfect lime and mint juice drink The exact route can be seen upon downloading the tour or previewed in the app, and it works offline. It's a self-guided audio tour that can be listened to anytime.
