Muscat (مسقط) Oman

People usually refer to Muscat when they mean the entire metropolitan area around Oman's capital. In reality, Muscat is the smallest capital in the world. Old Muscat is sultan Qaboos' residence and not much more. Muscat airport is actually in Seeb. The (unofficial) commercial district is in Ruwi, the harbour in Muttrah & Oman's largest employer - Petroleum Development Oman - is located in Qurm. The last time I visited Oman was in 2009, when there was time for a trip through Wahiba Sands. Looking forward to my first 2017 trip...
