Muscat in the Night

Enjoy a three-hour evening city tour of Muscat, a magnificent Eastern capital showcasing its beauty in crimson-gold sunsets and the soft nightlights.

Pick up at 17:00 hrs. The tour begins with a photo opportunity near the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, whose grey marble merges with the gentle night-time illuminations. Next, there is a short stop near the famous Golden Gate of the National Bank of Oman and, finally, another near the Al Alam Palace. Visit the Beit Al Zubair museum and proceed to the traditional market (Mattrah-souq) whose short, narrow, streets are full of the enchanting aroma of frankincense and at this time of day are full of visitors bargaining with local tradesmen. The quaint, ancient houses of the Corniche, where the souq is located, are illuminated with coloured lights that create an inexpressibly mysterious atmosphere of the East.
