Located along the eastern coast of Oman, the scenic city of Muscat is wedged idyllically between the beautiful blue water of the Oman Gulf and the rocky Oman Mountains. Against this dreamy backdrop, there are a wide variety of family-friendly activities. From educational museums and mighty forts to flower-filled parks and an opera house, Muscat family holidays have something for children of all ages (and parents too). Kick off your family adventure in Muscat around the city's bustling harbour; visit the quirky Al Alam Palace and admire its contrasting colours and unusual architecture, then head
to the imposing Al Jalali fort and learn about its rich historical past. On a guided tour, listen to plenty of gruesome and exciting stories that will thrill the little ones, and feel this ancient structure come alive as you explore it. Next stop is the Mutrah Souq, one of the best markets in the city; browse the eclectic variety of shops selling everything from Indian artefacts and spices to hats and clothes, and try your hand at bargaining for the perfect souvenirs to take home. Soak up the vibrant colours and fragrant smells of this wonderfully hectic environment and just make sure not to lose the children in the mind-boggling maze of streets.
