Muscat is the capital of the Gulf of Oman and is the largest city in the country. This capital is not as flashy as the ones from the neighboring countries but generally comes off as a breath of fresh air. This city is flanked by the Hajar mountains on one side and an open sea on the other. This makes it one of the most exciting cities to visit. You can very easily b walking through the desert in the morning and yet end up sitting on the beach of a sea on the same day in this city. This city although known for its seafood has numerous attractions all around which makes this a very appealing place to visit.The tricky terrain in the backdrop of this city makes it all the more exciting.Another appealing aspect of this city is the rich traditions and traditionally made items like jewelry and ceramics which are not cheap but are worth taking back home as souvenirs.
