Please help me choosing 2 towns.

I plan to travel one week in the area and I would like to visit two towns among the following: Kuwait, Doha, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Muscat.

I am not interest in shopping or in swimming. I'd like to see people, local markets, culture, architecture...

Could you help me choosing 2 destinations?

Thanks everybody in advance!

If you're looking for a "town," you might want to rethink those options.

But to answer the question: Muscat.

Thank you, greasy, for suggesting Muscat.

I'm not sure I understand why I should rethink my options. Do you mean that, apart Muscat, there is an interesting "outback" to visit in Oman? If that's what you mean, I'm afraid I'm not fit for excursions. But I'm open to the idea to visit other towns either than Muscat, if that gives me the chance to better observe local culture and way of living.

I simply mean that they're all legit cities. I hope you are interested in Land Cruisers and highways as "local culture!"

I've been to all but Kuwait, and they're all great places. Each offers something different. Oman/Muscat tends to be the destination for people who want something a bit quieter, but you're going to find the same Gulf culture in them all.

If you would like to visit two places, then I suggest Muscat and Dubai. They are close to each other and should present different views about how "culture" is evolving in this part of the world.
