In Oman (part 2)

     Here comes the pretty! The very first day after arriving at our destination in Al Bustan Palace Hotel, we decided to check out the old Muscat, which was a 5 minute car ride down the coast.
    
     It was a very charming little place and we enjoyed just walking around. It's surrounded by walls and the old city gates. Although we weren't in the mood for museums, there are a few in the area. We saw the Sultan's former residence, Al Alam Palace, built in the 1970s, Al Khor Mosque, 16th century Portuguese forts and some Administrative and military establishments.

    The streets are so clean and bougainvillea seems to be taking over the town in certain parts. It is stunning!
