Tucked amid the eastern fringes of the Gulf, Muscat is a romantic and beautiful city that's worthy of more attention than it gets. Want cultural offerings? Visit the Mutrah Souk. Looking to aimlessly wander a beautiful historic site? Head to Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, that also happens to be one of the largest in the world. Have a sweet tooth that needs fixing? Muscat’s traditional bakeries and cafes will serve up some of the best Baklava and coffee you would have ever had. And for outdoor enthusiasts, the city is just a couple of hours from Wadi Al Shab, which is famous for its daunting hikes and crystal-clear water. Perhaps what most sets Muscat apart from Dubai is its natural organic culture and architecture that wasn’t built in a haste only a few years ago.
