Muscat is the capital of Oman. It is a wonderful city with Arabian sea on one side and brown mountains on another side. This city is also a historically important one. Tourists enjoy the watchtowers and gateways of this city. Another very interesting thing to see here is the Sultan’s lovely but simple palace. There is a harbour named Muttrah, just close to the city of Muscat. This harbour has some good and busy markets. There is a road that goes along the shore of the sea (cornice). In short, Muscat is a wonderful place to visit because of the historical sites, natural beauty and modern architecture.
