It is the port capital that sits on the gulf of Oman, surrounded by mountains and deserts. As the history dates back to antiquity, it conglomerates high rises and upscale shopping malls with various cliff top landmarks which include the rank of 16th century Portuguese forts along with the Al jalali and Mirani which looms over Muscat harbor. If you are an avid sea food buff then this is the city you need to visit. The grilled meat, hummus and flat breads are something which you can try with sea foods. The stand out dish is kingfish curry, chunks of gamey fish simmered in a broth of coconut, turmeric, ginger and garlic. If you have love for architecture then you must at least pay a visit to the Al Alam palace. It is one of the splendiferous gold and blue royal residences. You can also pay a visit to royal opera house, an admirable blend of Omani and Italian architecture.
