ImageMuscat today is a city that is perpetually on the move. Its dynamism stems from its status as the federal capital of the Sultanate of Oman and its status as the major hub of Oman’s economic activity, Muscat is as famous for its dates, pearls and fish as it is for its fabulous hotels and high rise buildings. New development projects keep springing up and materializing; boosting the tourism industry in particular. The city is far from static. Its face is ever changing. The ancient meets the modern over here. The al Jalali, Mirani and Mutrah forts date back to the 1580s, whilst other buildings and sky scrapers date back to a few years ago.
