With its pictoresque bay and beaufitul corniche the neighbourhood of Muttrah (also known as Mutrah or Matrah) is one of the touristic highlights of Muscat. Unlike most other parts of Muscat which have undergone a rapid modernisation phase, Muttrah has preserved some of its historic core and has the flair of an old Arabian port city. The souq of Muttrah is a traditional bazaar selling spices, incense and local handicrafts.
