Nizwa

Once the capital of the sultanate, Nizwa stands as one of the longest-established urban areas in the country, and has retained its traditional core. Though some of the glitz and industry of the modern world has been added on the periphery, the center of town possesses some old architectural highlights, the focal points of many walking tours of Nizwa. The buzz of commerce in the old souq in the center of town has become a scene to witness and get lost in during visits to the city, with traditional handicrafts and agricultural products sold here.

Where to stay in Nizwa

Nizwa has relatively few accommodations to offer its guests, drawn to the historical core of the former capital. The relative lack of tourist infrastructure may well be what's keeping the traditional feel of the city center alive. A couple of standard hotels can be found in the center, and a few more in the towns to the north and south along Highway 21. The capital, Muscat, lies about an hour and a half's drive to the north-east along a good quality highway. Most visitors simply visit Nizwa during a day trip from the capital.
