Less affluent than many of its oil-rich and decidedly showy neighbors, Oman’s modern development has been comparatively slow-paced with a laid-back affability the country’s pay-off.
Crumbling Portuguese forts and tranquil fishing villages line the coast’s secluded shorelines, magnificent desert dunes and oases mottle the interior and traditionally garbed Bedouins can be spied drifting through the spice-filled souqs. Best of all, with their chunk of the Arabian Gulf having long served as a stopover point to centuries of merchant traders and explorers, the Omanis make for consummate hosts, ever keen to show off their country’s wares.
Hop on a Muscat bus tour to discover the fascinating history and traditional Arabian charm of Oman’s capital. Take in dramatic views of the city’s surrounding mountains and Sea of Oman. Hop off to explore 16th century forts, museums and the Sultan’s Al Alam Palace, and immerse yourself in the culture of Muscat.
