About Sharjah - Center of Culture

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

The emirate of Sharjah is the only emirate that overlooks 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.

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

In contrast to Abu Dhabi and Dubai, 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. The city is rooted in its Arabic and Islamic heritage with many Ummayyad and Abbasid-styled buildings, offering a glimpse of Arabic and Islamic environment in an otherwise largely westernized country.

Sharjah is considered a major hub for family friendly environment and activities, for housing many green parks, apartment complexes, and a large community of Arabs from all over the Arab world.


About Cairo: ‘Jewel of the Orient’

Cairo, the capital of the Arab Republic of Egypt, lies on both banks of the Nile River near the Nile Delta. It is the largest metropolitan area in the Arab world, Africa, and the Middle East, and the 15th largest city in the world. It inhabits 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, is still connected to ancient Egypt, for including in its geographical area the famous Giza pyramid complex and the ancient city of Memphis.

Cairo’s weather is generally desert, therefore it is considered a hot and sunny destination. However, it can also get very humid because of its proximity to the Nile River. 

The weather of Cairo is split to 3 major seasons:

  • You will find many offers on hotels and flights, which makes the season suitable for low-budgets.

In case you want to avoid wasting more money on your air ticket, you can book a cheap flight whether in March & April or October & November, as this is a comfortable season, where there are fewer crowds and hotels and flights are cheaper.  

We recommend that the best time to visit Cairo is during the winter and spring, when the temperatures are slightly low, so you enjoy being outdoors and snorkeling in the Red Sea.
