We stayed in Muscat in July 2018. We took a cab to Mutrah Souq. It's much smaller than the souqs in Marrakesh, for example, where you could spend days and days and get lost and not know whether you've passed a particular stall or not....More

Recommend going at night to get the full experience. Overall this was great. A lot of locals around and cool to just weave in and out of places you want to go. I enjoyed just getting lost. Everyone was so friendly when I got lost...More

Beautiful place in Muscat, Oman. Most of the time people will come in the evening with nice promenade and view of Muttrah corniche. Most of the old souq also was nice with affordable price of goods and welcome people. When I walking around for 4...More

If you can endure the lack of ventilation, the heat and the crowd, it’s a good place to shop for souvenirs and presents. Bought some cashmere scarves (hoping they’re not fake) at a very affordable price. Just learn how to haggle.

Still using the perfumes purchased. Really great interesting soul. The family were happy and we bought lots of things, the perfume sellers were off the main part are had lots of time for us.

You can find some great things in the souq. And in my time in the Middle East/world, this has to be one of the cleanest souqs/markets I’ve visited.

It’s a good place to walk when you want to get some shade. We bought small souvenirs for the kids but I wouldn’t have bought more expensive products as I was not sure if they were genuine. Vendors are not too pushy and let you...More

If you have been to other souks you will find this pretty much the same. Souvenirs, clothes, jewellery etc. Just outside there are restaurants and coffee shops with reasonable prices. Can be combined with a walk along the corniche.

Busy place what do you expect, Bartering is the word generally half what they say. Anything you want you can find especially rose oil and scents

Most of the vendors aren't from Oman and it appears a lot of the goods are cheaply made and produced in other countries ...we were expecting to buy authentic goods from Oman and there didn't seem to be much. a waste of our time

Dear Rom, souq is relatively small and we were a bit disappointed. As in most cases, going in the afternoon makes more sense, since most shops are closed during morning time.

We have no experience with silver buying. Many shops seemed professional and we assume that they will except credit cards. In the smaller local shops we paid with local currency cash. The prices had European level.

July is indeed a very hot month. The Souq is not Air-conditioned but most of the shops & restaurants are. For the elderly person it may be good to visit after 1900hrs when there is sea breeze. You can carry a bottle of... More
