"The Souq II" Muscat Things to Do Tip by MikeAtSea

Muscat Things to Do: 156 reviews and 363 photos

  Friendly people
by MikeAtSea

One of the highlights of my five visits to the Sultanate of Oman was the friendliness of the people. I took this picture in the Souq just after sunset during the Ramadan. The festive mood of the people who had just broken the fast swept over to everyone who was around, including foreign tourists. In the market a lot of people will approach you to find out where you are from or how one enjoys the time in Oman - always friendly and polite.
