iVisa.com Recommends

The capital of the Musandam region is the city of Khasab. To get there you can take a fast ferry boat, connecting to the capital Muscat. We suggest that you do just this as Muscat has a beautiful historic district. Buildings with East African-style wooden balconies and several seafront fortresses make Muscat a picturesque and relaxing destination. It’s worth spending a couple of days there and visiting the markets, museums, forts, mosques, and areas near the sea.

You must also visit the Taqah Castle. It dates back to the 19th century and is situated at the entrance of Mirbat. It was built to be the permanent residence of Sheikh Ali bin Al Ma’shani Timman. It's very well preserved and houses a very interesting ethnographic museum, showing various aspects of life and culture from the region where you can also learn all about local traditions and customs.
