The Matrah Souk in the port of Muscat will satisfy anyone needing some retail therapy. Be prepared to strike a bargain with the local tradesmen for saffron, spices, silver and scarves amongst so much more in this covered souk
The land of the hot springs, Ain Al Kasfa is a beautiful place to enjoy your day out. It is 150 kms away from Muscat and is surrounded by the grand dramatic mountain peaks of Al Fajr mountain range. It guards the exit points of several wonderful Wadis and makes for a perfect outing destination.
Visit an unspoiled Omani village to experience the traditional lifestyle of the people. Wakan village is high up in the Al Hajar Mountains, approximately 80 kms from Dunes. Walk along neatly terraced gardens with trees of pomegranates and apricots or take the 700 steps up to the top of the village to take advantage of the spectacular views over the mountains.
