Sharjah Tourism Opens East Coast Office

A new tourism office and information centre has opened in Khorfakkan by Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority, in advance of the winter tourism season.

The office is located on Sharjah’s Indian Ocean coast, Khorfakkan, which has been a destination for luxury cruise-liners since the early 1980’s, and has become a popular tourist destination.

Throughout the December-April cruise season, 60,000 to 70,000 passengers disembark. Cruise tourism forms an integral part of Sharjah’s tourism development strategy, Tourism Vision 2021, which aims to attract more than 10 million tourists to the emirate by 2021.
