(55 reviews from 3 attractions)
Classes
One of the main commercial and business hubs in the sultanate, Ruwi has the feel of a buzzing, modern district and the architecture to match. The high-rises and neon lights that mark the main public squares stand at odds with much of the capital, where a concerted modernization project started in the 1970s has removed many of the old narrow streets and rustic buildings that once filled the district. Today, the area represents a shopping hot spot, with its main street boasting numerous jewelry, electronics, and clothing stores. Tour companies can help round out a Ruwi itinerary with trips to some of the natural highlights, including mountains, deserts, and remote beaches.

Where to stay in Ruwi

The modern business district of the port capital, Ruwi possesses a few hotels, all fairly upmarket and set in large blocks, often combined with stores, spas, and malls. Head northwest to find the greatest range of accommodations, with most located between the expressway and the coast. Hugging the shoreline lie the sultanate's most luxurious hotels, offering sea views and a range of additional services, while farther inland sit a good range of more humble offerings, including chain hotels and guesthouses.
