Cloaked in tradition, Muscat has only recently begun to come out of its shell and rival its neighbouring cities and countries as a bona fide destination for holiday goers. But the best thing about this small, liveable city is just how different it is from the cities of the Middle East that we know so well. You'll find no skyscrapers here for example; in fact it is written into law that the low lying skyline cannot be besmirched by anything taller than seven stories.
Luxury Muscat holidays are a treat for all the senses however, and you'll be kicking yourself if you miss out on everything this wonderful vibrant, atmospheric, and old fashioned city has to offer. For the classic Muscat experience head to the Muttrah corniche to stroll along the waterfront; stop at food stalls along the way, or alternatively watch the fisherman haul in their fresh catch of the day.
