Introducing Muscat

This beautiful port capital, with a name that translates as “safe anchorage” is a port like no other in the world. Surrounded by rugged mountains and arid desert, and bursting with historic charm, Muscat is an elegant destination made for those who love a cultural adventure. A fusion of old and new, the city features a mix of both high rise blocks and 16th Century forts and it remains as Oman’s gastronomic hub for fine, authentic Omani cuisine. With a long waterfront dotted with great places to eat and the eastside peppered with traditional markets, it’s the perfect city to enjoy a culturally immersive travel experience.
