Favorite thing: Muttrah is one of the quarters that make up the city of Muscat. It's the place where Oman's ancient trading port used to be. Today in Muttrah there's a lively fish market and Muscat's best known souq.
On one of the surrounding mountains and hills you can see Muttrah Fort - one of the 13 forts scattered about the area. It was built by the Portuguese when they occupied Oman and was also the seat of government under the rule of Sultan Said bin Sultan al Busaidi.

Fondest memory: of course it was Eid when we went to Muttrah, so lots of places where closed. And yet, we liked it... we like the little harbour with the boats, the peacefulness of the area, and the amazing sea promenade past the centre of town.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
