Central Souq

Market in Sharjah

Near Al Ittihad Sq, the tile-embellished Central Souq occupies two long parallel buildings connected by indoor bridges. Shops on the ground floor hawk modern jewellery, watches and local and international clothing; upstairs is more regional flair, with rugs, pashminas and curios from the Arab world. Visit in the evening, when the place fills with locals.
