With just 2 days in Muscat, I had to rush to see this beautiful city and all the secrets it held. Most of the buildings are white stucco and so beautiful sitting against the green background. The highways are wonderful, very modern, There is a...More

This place is a hall of mirrors. It's like 3 shops repeated row after row after row. Unless you want bad football shirt copies, perfumes or linens give it a miss. It may be big but it's not good.

Muttrah Souk is unlike anything you have seen in Muscat. It's an other world experience. Take all the hustle bustle that Muscat has, take the glittering malls, the swift cars, the fine dining restaurants and then take Muttrah in all it's glory and delight. It...More

It's the best souk I have ever seen. The colors, the smells, the food and all the crafts and souvenirs that we can find in this place it's overwhelming. I love it.

Souk was dingy, dirty, goods were not of good quality and much of what was being offered was stained or dusty. This just doesn't compare to what you would find in Istanbul, Marrakech or other locations. Recommend passing it by.

Very close to cruise ship port. Right in the middle of town, lots of bargains, but many locals are pushy for you to buy. Please be very careful crossing the road!
