The capital of Oman, Muscat has been known throughout history as an important trading port between the west and the east, and is the heart of the modern Sultanate. Ruled by a variety of nations since its ancient beginnings, the city combines a spectacular cultural heritage with rapid growth and development. Both the Western Al Hajar Mountains, which run through the northern coastline of the city, and the golden shoreline on the Gulf of Oman make for some awe-inspiring natural scenery that’s sure to take your breath away. With a number of Muscat hotels to choose from, make sure to book your stay with IHG for a trip to remember.
Begin your visit with a trip to Old Muscat, located along the Muttrah Corniche, to see some of Muscat's most impressive attractions. Admire the spectacular Grand Mosque, as well as the Al Mirani and Al Jilali Twin Forts, which sit perched upon headlands that ring Muscat harbour. For a further dose of culture, call in to the Natural History Museum or Ghaly's Museum of Modern Art, and learn a little something about Muscat's past, present and future. Roam around the eclectic exhibits, and take your time discovering the hidden stories of the city.
Once you've immersed yourself in culture, head to Qurum beach, where you can kick back and relax on white sandy shores. Drink a cocktail in the shade of a palm tree, and then cool off in the sparkling sea before getting a bite to eat in one of the nearby bars or cafes.
