Things to Do in Muscat
With a rich cultural history, breath-taking natural scenery and a lifestyle of effortless, casual luxury, it’s little wonder that Oman has become one of the most exclusive destinations in the Middle East. Here, strikingly beautiful landscapes blend with informal elegance, and quiet relaxation is invited through the warmest of welcomes.
Over centuries of vibrant sea trade, Muscat has evolved into a city of color and diversity. Interestingly, the city is actually an amalgamation of three smaller towns that have gradually grown together. They are Muscat, Matrah and Ruwi. Top of our list is a wander through the winding streets of the Muttrah Souk, where corridors lined with goods open onto epic mountain vistas of pink-mauve, coral and blue. You can also take a moment to reflect during a stroll through the grounds of the spectacular Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque.
For those seeking a little more action, join us each year in the glorious February sunshine to witness the Tour of Oman, a professional road cycling race linked to the world-renowned Tour de France. Whatever you choose to do, you can look forward to discovering a destination unlike any other.
