  • Nizwa Souk is absolutely worth a visit, compared with the Souk in Muscat. still very traditionally found here everything you need or just expected. Cattle market still finish the job in the morning, a visit to the Fort of Nizwa. then a trip to the Green Mountains of Oman. This is very interesting. given that many locals are to meet, that love to enjoy - good 10 degrees difference cooler temperature: 38 degrees when starting down, 28, 29 degrees at the top of the plateau. the very best in this and also in an other day trip, however, was the Guide. His name is Basim Al-Habsi, to reach it is by telephone and Whatsapp under +968 9121 6916 - the man is a dream. very flexible, who perfectly know and you can see many places you otherwise rather not see. quite apart from the information-rich, yet received.

  • The souk of Nizwa is shares in the fort. The souk is divided into a number of different souks, with their own supply. So are the providers of pottery together and in there is a fruit and fruitsouk. Above this souk are a few souvenir shops located with especially wood carving and textile articles. On the ground floor is right a large shop where they sell spices. We were not on Friday, so the big market, we have not seen. Luckily no pushy salespeople. Nice detail: in the fruit and fruitsouk is still with scales with weights. Very special.

  • Really old & traditional market, its a joy!!!!!! They are famouse for their friday traditional market
  • I got here around 11:30 and the place was shutting down so it wasn't all that great tbh. I'm sure it's a bit livelier earlier. We did get some good value dates though so there is that. It's right beside Nizwa fort so if you go there you may as well check it out.
  • There is not a whole lot there for tourists. You can get large quantities of very good dates for next to nothing!
  • Historical place where the modern markets blends with old ones.
  • Nicely restored souq. Worth a look in.
