Day 1

Fly London to Muscat


Muscat is the capital city of Oman and a fascinating clash of old and new. Aesthetically the city is unabashedly contemporary, yet expressions of the city's rich past and traditions are very much evident. The veneer of modernity, supplied by astonishing state-of-the-art architecture, cloaks an ancient cultural heritage and it is this intriguing blend that makes Muscat such an alluring city.
