Muscat is Oman’s capital, and as its largest city and the seat of its government it promises the traveller many different things to see and do. This vibrant and ancient city is home to some truly stunning mosques. If you only visit one, then why not make it Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, with its majestic architecture and elegant gardens? Head down to Qurum beach to experience some gorgeous white sands, palm trees, and perfect sunbathing weather. Visit Qurum Natural Park for a wonderful family-friendly day out, and check out the Amouage Perfumery on your way to see some of the fabulous perfumes for which this region of the world is so famous. Muscat is also home to some fascinating museums, such as the Sultan’s Armed Forces Museum and the Ghalya’s Museum of Modern Art. When it comes to food and drink, too, you are spoilt for choice by the restaurants, cafes, and market stalls dotted throughout the city centre.
Most of the main city centre sights can be explored on foot, and when the weather is temperate, this can be the most pleasant option. Otherwise, hop on a tour bus, flag a taxi, or hire yourself a car and away you go.
Getting from the Airport to the City
Flights to Muscat arrive at Muscat International Airport: the largest airport in Oman. It is about 20 miles away from Muscat proper, and so it is advisable to get an airport taxi, or to hire a car at the airport. There are ample opportunities to both hire a car for you to drive yourself and to hail a taxi cab at the airport. There are also various hotel shuttles taking travellers to their hotels from the airport so make sure to check if there is one going to your particular destination.
