A nice small market in the form of shops in a small street. The setup puts you back in history. A lot of collectibles too.

Take a step back in time, watch your fingers unfurl, and hand over your money. Souk Al Arsah is probably one of the oldest markets in an older building. It was the meeting place for the Bedouins and their camels, and traders from Persia and...More

We went here looking for a Ruby ring and were amazed both at the selection and the great prices - thankfully, we only ended up with one :-)

Heritage district and souk (means market) tour in Sharjah was nice. The Souk wasn't big but interesting enough. You need to bargain for your purchases. We love the architectural aspect of the place and building. It's one of the oldest in this emirate.
