Excellent shopping malls.
Plenty of restaurants (dry).and well known takeaways. KFC, burger places, Subway etc
Most hotels have good bars.
Park with funfair open at night.
Modest dress - we found cropped trousers and tea shirt ok in day(no shorts or strappy tops for women in public)
Evening wear in hotels - didn't seem to matter.
Private beaches if you want sunbathing.
Very clean modern town.
We didn't need to but handy to hire car or plenty of taxis. Always felt safe.
Places RecommendedGrand Mosque early in the morning - we didn't have time.
Intercontinental and Hyatt pools - have to be signed in if not staying there and pay a charge. Good bars and food.
Yacht Club (small charge) private beach for sunbathing. -
Recommend Muscat to others
