Full description
Being a rare blend of ancient and modern, Muscat is a beautiful city which lies in a maze of brown pleated Mountains. Lulled by the Arabian Sea, the city has undergone dramatic development in the past two or three decades. However, Muscat takes pride in the fact that it has preserved its lustrous culture and heritage. Your visit starts with a tour of the grand mosque, which is an architectural marvel and perhaps the new landmark of the city. The drive continues through the ministries' area, where you can see a number of modern buildings with touches of ancient, Islamic architecture. Then, visit the fish market and the folkloric Muttrah souk, with its narrow covered alleys where you can smell exotic aromas of mounds of spices, coffee beans, and ancient remedies, all enticing perfumes that fill the air. Next, engage in a visit to the Bait Al Zubair Museum, which has a fine exhibit of Omani history and culture, encompassing all of the areas traditional values. You will also have a photo-stop at the magnificent Al Alam Palace (the official residence of Sultan Qaboos) flanked by the twin Portuguese forts of Mirani & Jalali. Continue to Bait-Al-Baranda, a great museum in muscat, before finally stopping for lunch in a local restaurant. In the afternoon , take your time to better explore this mystic city and its captivating civilization. Have a chance to explore other souks, and discover all the treasures and spices that you can find.

Der Ausflug ins nächtliche Muskat hat uns gut gefallen. Wie fuhren mit einem Mini Bus auf der Hauptachse an verschiedenen Sehenswürdigkeiten vorbei. Diese wurden durch Audioguides erläutert. Schade war die Übersetzung ins Deutsche nur teilweise verständlich und wiederholte sich beim erneuten Vorbeifahren. Es gab verschiedene Fotostopps. Der Besuch auf dem Markt, welchen wir selbstständig erkunden konnten war sehr spannend. Das Abendessen in einem türkischen Restaurant hat uns sehr gut geschmeckt. Die Bedienung war etwas seltsam. Es konnte zwischen Fleisch- oder Fischmenue gewählt werden, wurde jedoch ohne Erklärungen der Speisen serviert und sich nicht erwähnt, ob es Vorspeise, und Dessert gibt. (Es kam beides und war sehr reichhaltig und gut). Wir empfehlen die Tour zu Beginn des Aufenthaltes zu unternehmen und anschliessend am Tag die Sehenswürdigkeiten (wie z.B. die grosse Moschee und eine Opernführung) genauer anzusehen. Tourguide war sehr nett und gab uns genügend Aufenthaltszeit.

Organizzata nonostante fosse una delle due giornate di festa nazionale, abbiamo finito - nonostante l’impegno della guida - per saltare delle fermate e per passare la maggior parte del tempo in coda. Ottima la cena
