Your Destination

Since time immemorial, the Sultanate of Oman has enthralled travellers with its exquisite landscapes, enduring traditions and proud heritage. It is a country where modernity co-exists with the cherished Omani culture – lending a unique charm to this jewel of the Middle East.

The Sultanate of Oman is a rapidly-developing nation where centuries-old ways of living are still the norm outside the bustling capital. Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is a beautiful example of Islamic architecture, and provides a wonderful insight into the cultural heritage of Oman. It is also the only mosque that allows entry for non-Muslims.

The mosque is lavishly decorated and features a 263m prayer carpet, 35 crystal chandeliers (the central one is 14 metres high and 8 metres wide) and a floor entirely paved with marble. The tour takes you into the men's and women's prayer halls, where you are allowed to take photographs.

Visitors may also choose to visit Muttrah Souq, the oldest market place in the capital and offers a fascinating insight into authentic Omani culture. Gold, silver, antiques, spices, dates and frankincense can all be found in abundance in this colourful corner of Muscat. Oman is the home of frankincense so a visit to Muttrah Souq would not be complete without picking up a few pieces of this ancient luxury. Always select your resin crystals by hand and choose the blondest available, these carry the sweetest aroma.
