Muscat

Set between the stunning sea of the Arabian Gulf and the towering Hajar Mountains.   Muscat has a character quite different from its neighbouring cities in the UAE
With very few high rise building the city sprawls along the coastline, the most striking thing about Muscat is the contrast of its ancient cultural heritage and its modern style.  The old town boasts, gate houses, old markets, forts and authentic street markets on winding roads in comparison to the large upscale malls, modern highways, restaurants and the huge opera house. 

The port is a major part of the city and the beaches run the 25 km of Muscat.  There are a number of excellent hotels and restaurants in the city and it is definitely worth exploring the town for a day or two as well as relaxing on the beach!
