Muscat

4.3
The capital and largest city of Oman, the coastal city of Muscat boasts numerous historical sites and pristine modern developments. The clean and architecturally uniform city has been an important trading port for around 1,000 years, and has been ruled by many foreign groups, such as the Portuguese and Ottoman empires. Despite changing hands numerous times, the city has retained its unified look, with domes and arched windows used in even the most modern constructions. With a number of cultural sites old and new to explore, as well as sprawling beaches and rocky mountains, holidays in Muscat focus on human history as much as they do on natural heritage. Muscat is in Muscat Governorate. Our Oman road trip planning app combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
