Our next stop was Nizwa. Nizwa is a small town about 2 hours outside Muscat, with a fort and a market. The fort is right in the middle of town, and has an excellent view of the surroundings. It was probably the most impressive fort we visited in Oman. The Nizwa Souk was fairly small, and had recently been re-done to cater more to tourists. So while it had lost some of the authentic feel, it was still a nice place to stroll around and we picked up some nice silver jewelry.
There wasn’t much else to see or do in Nizwa – although we tried, as we did leave ourselves a day to wander around.
