We took a walk from Muttrah to Old Muscat. It took about an hour to walk along the Corniche to Old Muscat, and it was a very pleasant walk along the seaside. We walked past the dancing fountains near Al Riyam Park (impressive!) and past the huge incense burner, but were a little too tired to climb up to the top.
In Old Muscat, we saw the Sultan’s Palace. From the back, there is a very nice view of the sea and the city itself. We stumbled, lost, onto the front of the palace (you have to go around, as the palace itself is not open to visitors). There are several museums and other sights of less interest to us, but we passed on these and headed back to the hotel.
