Muttrah Souk, Muscat, Oman

Asia, International Travel, Photography, Travel

The Muttrah Souq is perhaps one of the oldest marketplaces in the Arab world. It is located adjacent to Muscat harbor and has seen immense trade in the age of sailing as it is strategically located on the way to India and China. There are some antique shops selling a mixture of Indian and Omani artifacts along with the usual textile, hardware and gold shops. Bargaining is expected, though any discount will be small.
