Voyage to a city Rich in History & Culture

Meaning “safe anchorage” in Arabic, Muscat has a longstanding relationship with the sea. From its prominence as a trading port in the first century, to its importance as a modern-day commercial center, this elegant town with fine houses has an ocean of things to discover.

Take a stroll along the Corniche and enjoy sweeping views and some of the best shopping in the city at the Mutrah Souq. The colorful maze-like marketplace is filled with treasures like mother of pearl jewelry and traditional Omani handicrafts such as intricately designed shoulder bags and wooden carvings. In the nearby hills, you can also find plenty of frankincense (although we can’t guarantee the number of wise men to be found).

After you’ve shopped to your heart’s content, grab a freshly squeezed fruit juice from a street vendor and climb to the base of Mutrah Fort at the east end of the Corniche for a spectacular view of the city.

Moving uptown, be sure to visit the Sulan Qaboos Grand Mosque. The third largest in the world, it features a massive Swarovski crystal chandelier with over 600,000 crystals and a hand-woven prayer rug with more than 1.7 billion knots. Now that’s a rug knot to be forgotten!
