Muscat – a walk along Mutrah Corniche and Muthrah Souq

In the afternoon we took the shuttle bus from our hotel to Mutrah’s Corniche (promenade). The 2km long corniche is a beautiful walk with nice views over the harbour, the Muscat Fort and mountains. A perfect walk when the sun sets.

Mutrah Souq

Many people come to Mutrah Corniche just to visit the souq, a traditional Arabic market where you can find incense burners, scarves, Arabic coffee, traditional textile, jewelry and spices. If you want to buy a souvenir bargaining is expected. We noticed that locals come to the Souq as much as tourist. I do recommend to visit the Souq in the evening, when it get busier. We visited the Souq in the afternoon and there were hardly any people.

Things to consider when visiting the souq and corniche

When you visit the souq and corniche you have to keep the standard regional rules in mind. That means modest clothing in public areas. The ladies should cover their shoulders and knees.
