Muscat is a quiet place, totally different of the other places of the Middle East. The city is scattered around hills. Muttrah is the downtown with the souk, shops and markets. The souk is amazing and you can make good deals. The people are very welcoming. The local food is very cheap. However, you will need to displace you by car or taxi.
