Muscat is an Adventure-of-a-different-kind

Oman’s city capital is a reflection of how its country has traditionally kept one eye on trade across the Indian Ocean and the other on the ancient routes of the desert. Today, with its respect for heritage, its elegant mosques, conservative tastes, and smart cafes have made
Oman a quiet champion of modern Arab culture.
