It's like a painting!

Perfect spot for couple shoots! (*inserts shameless selfie*)


These are my four fav spots in Muscat, Oman. We were only there for a weekend, so tried to make the most of our time. City is very calm and gets a lot of sun, so perfect for a low-key summer destination getaway. People are nice and welcoming. Getting around the city is fairly easy as everyone understands English and is genuinely helpful.


Hope you enjoy your stay in the port capital of Oman! Do share your experience!!
