Muscat (Port Qaboos), Oman-port

Muscat is the capital of Oman, a sovereign country. Muscat has been important since the 6th century BC, when Persians controlled the port. It was under Portuguese domination from 1508 to 1650, and subsequently the Iranians gained control of the city. Muscat became the capital of independent Muscat and Oman in 1741- the country’s name was changed to just Oman in 1970. Muscat offers a number of exciting excursions including dolphin watching and off-road desert adventures.

    Next, you will have an opportunity to visit the attached private home. After a warm greeting, you will be invited inside to share in some Arabic coffee and dates.
