About this photo

Set against the stunning backdrop of the dusty Hajar mountains, the captivating Omani capital is well worth a visit. Its port location promises some excellent seafood, its Muttrah Souk is a pleasing assault on the senses, and its Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque deserves a look-in, with a 50 metre-high dome, beautiful carpets and dazzling chandeliers.

Compared to some of its glitzier neighbours, Oman can feel refreshingly authentic, mixing modern conveniences with traditional cultural facets. Discover the Omani capital for yourself on Insight Guides’ Essential Oman tour.
