Compared to flashy Emirati neighbours like Dubai and Abu Dhabi, the capital of Oman is a breath of fresh, sea air. Muscat is famous for dazzling souks and superb seafood, but its terrain brings the biggest thrills. This port city on the Gulf of Oman is backed by the arid Hajar mountains, meaning you can trek deserts at dawn, spot dolphins at sundown, and enjoy plenty of effusive Omani hospitality in between.
Dubai is a cosmopolitan city of diversity and contrasts at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa. Dubai, the glamorous and the richest city in the United Arab Emirates is not only one of the top travel destinations in Asia but also one of the most popular international travel destinations in the world.
