While neighbouring countries have given in to Western ways, the capital of Oman has protected its traditions so the architecture is Arabian with no skyscrapers, new builds are sandy coloured or white, and inhabitants dress as they did many decades ago. This means those on flights Muscat bound get a real sense of the Middle East in one place.
Must see spots in Muscat
Old Muscat is easily navigable by foot, taking in the massive Portuguese forts above the harbour with Fort Mirani containing a museum. The air of the Muttrah Souq just along the coast is heady with the aromas of frankincense and spices, and the area is divided into sectors selling particular goods such as gold and silverware.
The only mosque open to non-Muslims in Oman is the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, accommodating 20,000 people and sporting 35 crystal chandeliers with the largest weighing a massive eight tonnes. If you want to enter, you must dress modestly and cover your hair with a scarf.
In the summer Muscat comes alive at night so if this is your idea of fun, book Muscat flights for those months. You can always cool off during the day at one of the many beaches by dipping into the Gulf of Oman or spend some money in the main shopping areas of Ruwi or Qurm, where the malls have a combination of traditional souqs and more western shops.
