MUTTRAH SOUQ

MUSCAT

Oman’s culture is deeply rooted in its proud heritage and history of seafaring, trading, and exploration. Today, long-standing traditions blend seamlessly with modern day living, with the latest fashion and electronics brands sold alongside traditional handmade crafts, jewellery, and even livestock at souqs around the country.

This same blend of the old and new is reflected in Oman’s architecture. Attractions such as the Royal Opera House Muscat and Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque – two must-visit destinations when in Muscat – are perfect examples of this.

Coupled with well-preserved villages and attractions like The National Museum, old forts and watchtowers like Bahla Fort, and several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, it is easy to see how the Sultanate has earned its reputation as a land of exquisite culture and rich heritage.
