Tour of Muscat
Discover Muscat’s enchanting blend of ancient and modern. Explore the grand Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque which can accommodate up to 20,000 worshippers and consists of a main prayer hall, ladies’ prayer hall, covered passageways, meeting hall and a library that will eventually contain up to 20,000 books. The mosque is open Saturday to Thursday; women visiting the mosque must cover their head with a scarf and should not wear shorts, beachwear or sleeveless outfits. Men must also be fully covered. Wander the narrow, covered alleys of Muttrah’s souk where the exotic fragrances of perfumes and aromas of ground coffee and other spices fill the air. Delve into Omani culture at the Bair Al Zubair Museum. And finish your travels with a walking tour of the old city.
