A magical feel awaits you at Oman's capital, Muscat. The Old Port area is where you'll find the Sultan's enchanting Main Palace – which is a fascinating place to have a wander around. The beautiful city has an array of mosques too, including the ‘Zawawi Mosque', which has been designed in the shape of an inverted lotus flower and built of pink marble and features a 22-carat, gold-leafed dome. The Aquarium – considered the grandest one in the Gulf – is well worth the visit. To learn about Oman's 5,000-year history, head to the ‘Oman Museum'. There really is something for everyone here at this fascinating port of call.
An authentic shopping experience awaits you at the 'Muttrah Souk'. This is where you'll discover stalls selling traditional Omani items such as Dallah (bronze coffee pots), exotic spices and frankincense.
The currency of Muscat is Omani Rial (OMR). Muscat is 3 hours ahead of Greenwich meantime (GMT +3).
