City Guide

About Cairo: ‘Jewel of the Orient’

Cairo is the capital city of the Arab Republic of Egypt. It lies on both banks of the Nile River near the Nile Delta. This city is the largest metropolitan area in the Arab world, Africa, and the Middle East, and the 15th largest city in the world. It has a population of over 20 million people spread over 3,085 km². 

Metropolitan Cairo is made up of the Cairo governorate, besides other districts, some of which are owned by neighbouring governorates, like Al-Jīzah and Qalūbiyya.

Cairo, the city of the Thousand Minarets, remains connected to ancient Egypt, as it includes in its geographical area the popular Giza pyramid complex and the ancient city of Memphis.

About Sharjah: “Center of Culture”

Sharjah, which has been ruled by the Al Qasimi dynasty since the 18th century, is the capital city of Sharjah emirate. It is the third largest and third most populous city in the United Arab Emirates, forming part of the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area. 

The emirate of Sharjah is unique from the other emirates, as it oversees the Gulf of Oman (Indian Ocean) to the East, and the coastline on the Persian Gulf to the west, with the eastern Sharjah coastal towns of Kalba and Khor Fakkan.

Sharjah shares borders with Ajman and Umm Al Quwain to the north, Dubai to the south and Ras Al Khaimah to the east. 

Sharjah, the cultural and literature hub of the country, offers visitors a vastly larger view into Arabic and Islamic architecture as well as its libraries, Islamic museums, and cultural centers in contrast to Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Being rooted in its Arabic and Islamic heritage with many Umayyad and Abbasid-styled buildings, Sharjah showcases a peak of Arabic and Islamic environment in an otherwise largely westernized country.

Moreover, this city is considered a significant center for family friendly environment and activities, as it includes many green parks, apartment complexes, and a large community of Arabs from all over the Arab world.
