What to expect

Drive to visit Grand Mosque which is an architectural marvel and is perhaps the new landmark of the city, continue to the ministries area, the fish market, the Muttrah souk and the Bait al Zubair museum which has a fine exhibit of Omani history and culture, see al Alam palace (the official residence of Sultan Qaboos) flanked by the twin portuguese forts of Mirani and Jalali.

A unique blend of the ancient and the modern, Muscat is a beautiful clean city, which lies in the middle of a maze of brown pleated Mountain. Lulled by the Arabian Sea. The city has undergone dramatic development in the past two or three decades. However it has pride in his never lost its heritage and culture. Our visit would start with a tour of the grand mosque, which is an architectural marvel and is perhaps the new landmark of the city. We would continue our drive through the ministries area. Where you can see a number of modern building with touches of Islamic architecture. We would then visit the fish market and the Muttrah Souk with its narrow covered alleys where the exotic smells of mounds of pices. Coffees, ancient remedies and enticing perfumes fill the air. We would visit the Bait Al Zubair Museum which has a fine exhibit of Omani history and culture. You would have a photo stop at the magnificent Al Alam Palace (the official residence of Sultan Qaboos) flanked by the twin Portuguese forts of Mirani and Jalali.
