Muscat - surrounded by picturesque mountains and deserts - is a beautiful port town settled on the Gulf of Oman. The city is unmistakably modern and that becomes quite evident through the upscale restaurants, shopping complexes, world-class boutiques and modern malls sprawling throughout the town.
But that's not all, the port city is just as old as it’s new! It features history that dates back to millennia, and attractions like 16th-century Portuguese forts, Al Jalali and Mirani testify the fact. No matter what’s your taste, be it modern or history, the city definitely got something that will leave you intrigued.
