Here are some ideas for day two: examine the collection at Bait Al Zubair, get a sense of history and politics at Al Alam Palace, and then race across the water with a speed boat tour.

To see traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Muscat trip itinerary maker.

The Route module can help you plan travel from Nizwa to Muscat. Traveling from Nizwa in August, expect Muscat to be somewhat warmer, temps between °C and °C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 25th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
