Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The old fish market near the creek has moved to the modern Souk al Jubail complex. A similar development as in Dubai and Muscat. It greatly improved hygiene and service to the customers. The fish you buy can be cleaned by professional workers at a closed section adjacent to the fishmarket area in the hall. Do not expect low prices. The times when fish was a diet of the poor are over.

    Built in traditional style in 2015 this new market complex is located just opposite the Al Jubail bus station in central Sharjah. It is not easy to reach on foot as there are highways all around. Most people arrive and leave by car.

    Probably for hygienic reasons the market halls are clearly divided. There are sections for fresh fish with a cleaning facility, meat, vegetables and fruits, nuts, spices and herbs etc. It looks very similar to the Waterfront market in Dubai, but prices are generally lower. Staff is friendly and helpful.

    My daughter has been attending art classes delivered by Sharjah Art Foundation for some time and she has thoroughly enjoyed them. The classes are free and they offer a good variety of techniques and materials.
    They take place at the Art for All building and the Collections building. Both are excellent, but parking is a real problem at the Collections building.
    Sometimes they even offer local trips.
    There are not many things kids can do for free in the UAE, so this is a great opportunity.

    Highly recommend Sheba Iranian Carpets & Antiques Stores. We bought a beautiful Persian rug from this store and could not be happier. Rashad and his staff were hospitable and patient as they helped us make the right choice for our living space.

    Very good shopping malls connected to each other in the city of Sharjah which are located just a walking distance from the bus stop. I went round all the three markets that included a lot of shopping stalls and shops but i could not buy much except at the fruits market. The gold market in particular looks dazzling as a result series of shop with expensive jewelry on display on the windows of the shops. The other market that consist of some textile goods was very good to and i enjoyed my visit to the markets.

    For many years Carpets Kingdom has been the place for me and my family to buy carpets of all kinds and sizes. It has become a tradition for us to pay Mr. Abdul Karim a visit whenever we wanted to add to our carpet selection. Most importantly, what always takes us back is the wonderful greeting we always receive, the great customer service we experience, and the fact that we will find the carpet we are looking for. Thank you Abdul Karim, and the Carpets Kingdom team, for your wonderful hospitality and letting us feel special with exceptions.

    A small mall with Carfour(matager) inside .
    Toilets are clean and well maintained.

    Easy parking and the mall wasn't crowded.

    Limited amount of shops.

    Mega Mall is among the better, if not the best, mall in Sharjah. Compared to the massive malls in its neighbour Dubai, it may not be that impressive, but it does stand its ground. The mall is located a short distance from the King Faisal Mosque.

    The mall has a children's entertainment and play area, called as Antic's Land and a multiplex. It has a number of branded stores; though not as much choice as those in Dubai again. Antic's Land is a fun place with a roller coaster and numerous rides, which makes it well-suited for a family outing. The mall also has a decent food court, with some nice dining options.

    Went with my family for a couple of hours, located near the Dubai-Sharjah border enjoys good access, and is well served, if using public transport. I was mostly impressed by the large food court, several options there for families and the variety of food is spanning along an entire floor. It has an interesting mechanized adventures park inside, lovely for kids. The place is clean and well-maintained. Parking is a little bit chaotic, but that would be the only negative, frankly. Shops are mostly clothing and shoes with some other well-recognizable bands in the UAE. Good for a nice walk and shopping.

    Souq Al Shanasiyah is a restored old Souq (market place), which forms part of the Heart of Sharjah heritage development. Along with the Souq Al Arsah, this souq has a line of shops created in the traditional architecture of the region.

    The souq is not really a place to shop much; one would get the usual carpets, spices and tourist things here. It gets visitors primarily during weekends only. There is a small heritage centre here, showing some of the excavations made in the area and the history behind it. Apart from that, there is not much to do here. One can spend 20-30 minutes.
