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
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.
