"spend some days in Muscat. The..." Oman Favorite Tip by MProcher

Oman General: 52 reviews and 49 photos


Favorite thing: spend some days in Muscat. The better name is Capital Area. The old Muscat - a small city at the eastern coast of Capital Area - is only a part of the wide spread dwelling area.

Separated by various low level deserted mountains, Capital Area consists of different parts: Muscat in the East, Mutrah in the Northeast, Ruwi a bit Southwest of these two, further West there are Qurum and Khuwair - and many others, smaller and less important.
While Muscat and Mutrah have preserved some old buildings and some traditional Arabic charme with their Suqs and the corniches, Ruwi is the business district where most the important companies have their headquarters.

Fondest memory: pic shows view over a part of a living area in Ruwi
