Wedged between the mountains and the sea, the capital city of Oman is a glorious wonder of white elegance. Muscat, the chosen capital for trade and commerce across the Indian Ocean, is a meticulously clean and organised city. Much of the charisma attached to the historic port city comes from its quintessential Omani architecture, painted in uniform white and preserved by royal decree. The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, Bait Al Zubair, Sultan's Armed Forces Museum and Royal Opera House Muscat are some of the top attractions for tourists. The sea is an inherent part of the city, supporting the fishing industry and subsequently many livelihoods. Some of Muscat’s best experiences revolve around the sea – be it an evening stroll along Mutrah Corniche, snorkelling at Bandar Khayran or diving with turtles in surrounding lagoons. This whimsically warm city is perfect for those looking for some calm in a chaotic world.

The winter season, from October to March, is an ideal time to visit Muscat as it’s a reprieve from the scorching heat of the city. This is also the time when most events/festivals are organised, and the city is open for you to explore.
