Housed inside an architecturally marvellous structure (it is one of the most photographed buildings in Sharjah), the Blue Souk is where you should head over to if you want to shop till you drop! Home to over 600 shops, the souk is embellished in blue tiling thus giving it the name. Also known as Central Market, the souk has traders selling items such as electrical goods, traditional as well as antique jewellery, kitchen utensils, gold, famous UAE gems, perfumes, souvenirs and even Arabic carpets.

Trivia: The impressive building was designed by British architects Michael Lyle & Partners. The Ruler of Sharjah, HH Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi gave his inputs during the designing stage.
