Muttrah Souk

Souk is the Arabic word for a market or a place where all kinds of goods are bought, sold or exchanged. Friendly haggling is part of the experience and is almost expected by the trades people.

One of the most fascinating souks in the Gulf, the Muttrah Souk is still the source of many Omani families' daily household needs.

The real excitement of visiting Muttrah Souk is in exploring the side streets. Wander down any of the small side alleys and discover a selection of tiny shops full of Omani silver, stalls of gleaming white dishdashas and embroided kumahs, brightly coloured cloth and multicoloured head scarves.
