What We Love About Muscat

Unlike the other glitzy neighboring cities in the United Arab Emirates, the capital of Oman is home to understated beauty that provides a breath of fresh air. A laid-back and easygoing city, it’s hard to deny the old world charm that Muscat still clings on to. Travel back in time to the old quarter of Muscat and spot the enticing Al Alam Palace that is historic, exotic, and full of geological wonder. Explore other parts of the city and catch a show at the opulent Royal Opera House Muscat. A stop at the impressive Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is also a must, where you can lay eyes on the second largest Persian carpet in the world, located in its main prayer hall!
