Oman's main tourist destination

Scenically nestled between mountains and ocean, this region is a delight to visit

Oman's capital, Muscat has a character quite distinct from its neighbouring capitals. Stretching almost 25 km along the Omani coastline, Muscat is a true taste of Arabia retaining its historical charm and traditions despite modern influences - buildings are required to reflect tradition with a dome or Mashrabiya (lattice window). Muscat is dominated by the old corniche, a picturesque stretch of seafront - Mutrah, and nearby quarter of Old Muscat which is fringed with 18th century buildings, colourful mosques and Portuguese forts, dominated by the imposing 17th century Mutrah Fort. The result is an attractive city sprawling with authentic charm, and if you're looking to experience everyday Omani culture visit the Mutrah souk where you'll find everything from leather goods to plastic alarm clocks - get ready to indulge in a spot of haggling. Or you could just enjoy the opulent hotels and the city's sand-fringed coastline and more modern shopping facilities.

Oman's capital and surroundings provide modern getaways with the perfect mix of traditional culture, luxurious retreats, scenic mountains and ocean landscapes. Tourism in Oman is on the rise, so now is the time to visit.
