The Mingling of the Old and the New
Many Arab states retain their historical and cultural sites, just like what they used to look like in the old times. Old buildings and mosques blend well with modern and steel-made structures in the city. Feast your eyes with sites like the Hawiyat Najm Park, Oman Botanic Garden, the Nodular Limestone and many others.
The Allure of Arabian Beaches
You can take a dip at the AlQurm Beach, but keep in mind that in Arab countries skimpy swimsuits are not yet widely accepted, so it is wise to wear something that covers the body when out swimming. Posh hotels are also situated in beaches along the AlQurm Area, making the most crowded and busiest strip of beach in Muscat. The area is also very near shops and restaurants that tourists frequent.
Al Fahal Island, also known as Shark Island, is only 4 kilometers away from the mainland, so it is very accessible by boat for those who want to take a dip in the deep end of the sea. The island is composed largely of limestone that is millions of years old.
Vacationing is not complete without shopping. The Mutrah Souq is one of the oldest marketplaces in Oman, and if you want to buy souvenirs for family and friends back home, this is the place to go. Here you can find indigenous products and food that will complete your Muscat experience.
