As Muscat is getting ready to show us his night colours, we went to see the Al Alam Palace of the Sultan Qaboos – ruler of Oman. The palace is now only used for ceremonial purposes as the Sultan lives elsewhere. The palace is not accessible by the public.

As it was a beautiful night, we’ve decided to get out of the car and walked down the Mutrah Cornishe. It is a stunning 3km walk around the harbour/port. The Sultan’s personal yacht “Al Said” is docked in the port.

Another sight worth a visit is the Mutrah Suq. It is one of the oldest markets in the Arab world. We went into a few shops that sold antiques. Below are some of the shops and products:
One day is definitely not enough to scratch off the top layer of this picturesque city. I will make my return to this city and explore more of the amazing sites and landmarks.
