Oman’s port capital of Muscat is a beautiful city surrounded by desert and mountains. With its long history, it is no surprise that the national capital effortlessly combines its heritage with its upscale shopping malls and high-rise buildings. Some of its most popular tourist attractions include the Sultan’s palace called the Al Alam (which is famous for its rather colorful gate), Bait Al Zubair, a place that houses many Omani artifacts, the Royal Opera House Muscat (which has its very own garden) and the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, a contemporary structure that can accommodate 20,000 worshippers. Muscat also has Portuguese forts dating back to the 16th century that looms over its harbor.

Sitting on the Gulf of Oman, Muscat is as near to the sea as Doha. These two port cities have many things in common including beautiful skylines and amazing food. For those looking for a culinary adventure of the seafood kind, Muscat is the place to be. Oman’s capital is not like many of its neighbors though because it is more subdued and known for its superb seafood, its souks, and its beautiful terrain. A city that offers both a cosmopolitan atmosphere and a love for the outdoors, visitors can enjoy the view of the Hajar Mountains from the city center, trek the desert and go to the beach when the sun is no longer scorching hot. Doha is just as exciting, but if it is your first time in Muscat you will find that the general vibe is different in the Omani city. Apart from its souks and mosques, Oman offers a glimpse to its historic weaponry which includes beautiful swords and daggers.
