    What to Expect

Then you proceed to Jabrin castle built in 17th century its one of the finest of its kind. Its magnificent plasterwork, the carved doors and the painted wooden beams of the ceilings makes this castle amazingly different.

Bahla is also famous for its pottery. Have lunch at a local restaurant and then be driven back to Muscat by late afternoon.

    This is a long drive from Muscat but we stopped to view an oasis and ancient city. We shopped in the market at Ft. Nizwa and toured the fort. Afterwards we had lunch in a small café. Our guide spoke very good English and we were returned to our hotel on time.
