About Muscat

Ensconced with the silhouette of the mountains forming a natural backdrop and the gentle lapping of the ocean, with an old world charm evidenced in the myriad museums and forts, or the profusion of floral fantasies, Muscat, the capital of Oman is truly a traveler's delight. True to its name, it is a safe city with friendly locals and an unhurried and welcoming vibe. 

The city is a unique, traditional, whimsically attractive abode that has retained the elegance evidenced by the early settlers. Though conservative at its very core, the city expects the tourists to conform to their dress code, but in return, extends the characteristic warm Omani hospitality that has the tourists clamoring for more. The best souvenirs can be found in this city. Ranging from different types of perfumes, colorful clothes with beautiful designs, artsy collections of old jewelry, stones, beads, and packages that attract tourists all year round. This has ensured Muscat has now become one of the most happening tourist spots for shopping. The nightlife in this city is exciting and gives a feeling of an all-year-long festival or party.
