  • Beautifully restored Souk. Separate Souk for fruit, meat, fish and dates. Highly recommended. Traders are not as pushy as in muttrah. Rather pleasant to iterate through

  • Especially when you time it with the he animal market on a Friday ... meat, veggies, fish and local market products ... kids everywhere haggling - amazing experience.  more »
  • The Nizwa Souk is worth a visit, you get everything from the goat to the air mattress. A good opportunity to cover themselves with souvenirs, but most come from Asia. Of the cattle market Friday morning is the attraction. The good deals are how everywhere something hidden. A total worth.
