What to expect

Muscat is a beautiful city which lies in a maze of brown pleated Mountains.

Your visit starts with a drive through the ministries' area, where you can see a number of modern buildings with touches of ancient, Islamic architecture. Your first stop will be the Grand Mosque, which is an architectural marvel and perhaps the new landmark of the city. You will then visit the fish market and the folkloric Muttrah souk, with its narrow covered alleys where you can smell exotic aromas of mounds of spices, coffee beans, and ancient remedies, all enticing perfumes that fill the air.

Next, engage in a visit to the Bait Al Zubair Museum, which has a fine exhibit of Omani history and culture, encompassing all of the areas traditional values.
