For an authentic experience in a crowded marketplace, Muscat vacations offer a great opportunity for you: the Muttrah Souq bazaar. You can pick out some authentic souvenirs in this open-air bazaar while being protected from heat by the overarching ceiling. Don't forget to haggle for your purchases! The city also has plenty of historical and cultural landmarks, such as the grand mosque. To learn more about the culture infusing the city, turn to the museums. The Bait Al Zubair museum will teach you about the traditional lifestyles of the area, and the Sultan's Armed Forces museum shows a different side of history: the political development of the country with a focus on the military. If you get tired of the crowds, take advantage of the car rentals in Muscat to escape to the nearby beaches, which are relatively secluded and serene.
You won't want to miss the Muscat Festival, which is a month-long celebration packed with shows, performances, events, and general festivities. Taking place around January-February each year, the festival incorporates cultural elements of music, arts such as poetry and sculpting, lights, sports, and even speeches by famous political figures of the area. If you love sharing the infectious hilarity and enjoyment of a crowd, this is where you'll want to be in February.
