The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, one of the landmarks of Oman (open every day between 0800 and 1100 Hrs. except Fridays and holidays). The mosque was inaugurated on 4th of May 2001. The dress code for women is to cover their arms, legs, and heads with a scarf. The dress code for men is to wear normal shirt and trousers. We will then drive to the Amouage perfume factory. A visit to the Amouage Perfume Museum will leave you inspired and enlightened about one of Oman's most beloved brands. On our way to the fish market, we drive through ministries and embassies areas. We also drive through the fascinating beach street in Al Qurum, where we visit the Fish and Vegetable Market. After exploring the fish market, make your way to Mutrah Souq - Oman's biggest traditional souq. Then, perched on a mountain ridge overlooking both the city and bay of Muttrah is Muttrah Fort. With its towers and ramparts, it was in prime position to protect the area from attacks both by sea and land. Said to have been built in the year 1507, two towers and a curtain wall were later added by the Portuguese at the end of the 18th century. The al Busaidi dynasty then increased this fortification when they doubled the curtain walls and added further towers. Finally, restored by the Ministry of Heritage and Culture in 1980, Muttrah Fort is definitely worth a visit. A fine display of Omani culture and history and information about the Royal Family can be found at Bait Al Zubair Museum, located near Muttrah fort. Visit old Muscat and see the Al Alam Palace, take a stroll through the palace yard, and walk behind the palace to see the twin forts built in the 16th century by the Portuguese, Jalali and Mirani. Pay a visit to the Royal Opera House and appreciate the unique architecture of contemporary Omani design. His Majesty Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al Said Sultan of Oman has long been an admirer of classical music and the arts. When he ordered for its construction in 2001, it was officially opened on October 12, 2011. The Opera house complex can fit up to 1,100 people and comprises of a concert theater, auditorium, formal landscaped gardens, cultural market with retail outlets, luxury restaurants, and an art center for musicals, theatricals and operas.
