Muscat — 2 nights

The capital and largest city of Oman, the coastal city of Muscat boasts numerous historical sites and pristine modern developments.
Step out of the city life by going to Snake Canyon and Shark Diving. Explore hidden gems such as Sultan's Armed Forces Museum and Museum of Illusions. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Pebble Beach, see the interesting displays at The Currency Museum of Oman, play a few rounds at Al Mouj Golf, and contemplate the waterfront views at Wadi Al Arbeieen.

Underdeveloped and largely ignored by foreign visitors until the 1970s, Oman now represents one of the region's top vacation destinations, attracting tourists with its pretty beaches, impressive dunes, and friendly mountain villages. A tour of Oman allows travelers to discover a traditional Middle Eastern way of life, authentic cuisine, and thriving urban centers where centuries-old heritage meets every modern amenity under the sun. In a country of well-maintained roads, many visitors choose to drive from one city to the next, where a typical Oman itinerary will include World Heritage Sites, historic forts, modern beaches, and an eclectic dining scene.
