Al Qasba has become the premier tourism, cultural, business and entertainment landmark within the Emirate of Sharjah, UAE.. Occupying an area of 10,000 acres, its most distinctive features are its one kilometre-long manmade canal and the 60-metre high observation wheel, the Etisalat-Eye of the Emirates. Managed by the Al Qasba Development Authority, an affiliate of Shurooq, Al Qasba’s unique architectural design includes pedestrian bridges across the canal and boats to take visitors onto the adjoining Khalid and Al Khan lagoons. It also features the state-of-the-art Masrah Al Qasba, a 300-seat theatre, which hosts a plethora of events, including artistic, musical, film, theatrical and poetry performances, as well as conferences and summits, on a regular basis.
