Muscat, the capital of Oman, is a perfect blend of old and new. The city enjoys a dramatic setting with mountains on one side and the Arabian Sea on the other.
Founded over 900 years ago, Muscat continues to retain traditional values, while also boasting ultra-modern shopping complexes, world-class highways, a host of international hotels, an international airport and a major seaport. Muscat, Muttrah and Ruwi form its core districts, home to 500,000 people, the Grand Mosque and many forts, castles, souks, traditional houses, museums and watchtowers.
With its many hotels and solid tourism infrastructure, Muscat can cater to both the adventurous thrill seeker and those seeking rest and relaxation. The city’s long coastline and temperate waters are ideal for almost every type of water sport, while the bustling souks never fail to fascinate with mind-boggling displays of fine silver jewellery, antiques, frankincense, carpets, rugs and other Omani souvenirs.
