Take a stroll along Corniche, a scenic waterfront promenade in Muscat’s Muttrah district. A bustling hub of commercial activity, the sweeping seaside road leads you along the spacious port, often packed with traditional "dhow" boats, the old Portuguese fort, and the lively fish market. Enjoy picturesque views of the mountainous seafront as you walk or cycle the road, and pay a visit to the famous Souq bazaar, an ancient marketplace where you can hunt for bargains and browse its labyrinthine stalls, which sell an array of antiques, jewelry, handicrafts, and vibrant fabrics.
