Sharjah Airport

Airport Car Rental

The third-largest city in the UAE, Sharjah doesn’t get nearly as much attention from foreign visitors as the big two, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, but can be a fascinating place to explore. Although the city also has its fair share of futuristic skyscrapers, it is a lot more traditional and is notable for landmarks like the Museum of Islamic Civilization, Al Hisn Fort, and the Blue Souq or traditional market.
