Some years ago, while I was working with a travel company I was asked to travel to Oman ( as a part of my job ). To my stunted knowledge about this stunning destination, I was least interested forget being fascinated about visiting the country and the Omani Capital. I didn’t hold out much hope and expected the usual, Middle-East countryside covered in desert. Until I flew down and took a first-hand experience, I wasn’t convinced how beautiful this country is. Muscat is a clean city, hugging the coast. It’s neither as glamorous as Dubai nor is clustered as Cairo. It has a Charisma of its own. A charmingly dual-faced city, Muscat is a bustling commercial metropolitan with grand structures on one hand and chic malls stocked with world-famous brands on the other. It is a historical land with old souks, stunning and incredible mosques, forts and a string of museums.
In this blog, I have listed down top five must-dos when in Muscat for all first timers like me who have just a couple of days to explore it.
