  • This is definitely a more traditional part of Oman, probably better to dress appropriately if you're hoping to avoid glaring eyes and the odd photographer. We bought some fresh dates on the side of the road and some sweets inside the fruit area, they will let you sample the sweets which IMO were delicious. The area has a real Arabic feel and is definitely worth a stroll around.
  • Very wonderful and certainly you will never regret visiting such amazing traditional market in Oman
