When it’s a solo female travel trip, the thing which steals the thunder of excitement is the safety concern that our families have for us!
“Is that place safe?” “Will you be safe?”
But in Sharjah, you need to put a lid on these nagging thoughts.
Away from the crowded Dubai, despite being the third largest Emirate -Sharjah is calmer and quieter. That means you can enjoy your “vacay-mode” without any hassle of being man-handled. And if we have to talk about the brownie points of Sharjah – this place has strict laws – which means the crime rate is low – at least lower than rest of the other touristy places around the world.

And if you feel a bit baffled about travelling from one place to other, you don’t need to worry. There are so many secure car rental companies in Sharjah which not only take you to places you want, but also ensures your safety and ease.
In the Arab world, as we all have notion that women can’t go out – or even if they do- they need to dress in a proper way. Other notions that we have is that moving around in western clothes will be an invitation of male gaze or might offend the people around!
Let’s set these notions right! While you need to be a bit cautious about dress code in this part of the world, you don’t have to cover yourself up. A pair of cool shots, long skirts and tees are all set to rock that travel look.
You can also find so many “women-only” zones – both time and place – in the city, to surcharge that girl power feeling within you.
