Traditional Souqs of Oman

10 Aug 2022

man offers the right blend of the old traditions, culture and heritage. This is not just evident in the infrastructure and customs but also in its souqs. Traditional markets (or as the locals call them: souqs) have been a significant part of the revered cultural history of Oman. For many years, locals have flocked to these markets to trade their products in a community-like environment that celebrates the traditions of olden Oman.

Some of the must-visit souqs of Oman are the Muttrah souq which is approx.200 years old and is designed as a complex maze of narrow alleys leading to small shops that sell Omani traditional khanjar, Luban, spices and the Omani Halwa. Nizwa souq is one of the oldest souks of Oman and reflects the rich history of Oman. Located near the castle, the souq has retained its ancient architecture and unrenovated structures. The souq sells unique souvenirs like taqiya caps, lamps, pottery and fresh dates.

Fanja Souq with its vast collection of antiques and Vintage is often referred to as the mirror of Oman and is a must-visit for those wanting to soak in the rich history, culture and tradition of Oman. Situated in Wilayat of Bidbid, the souq is just a 30-minute drive from Mysk Al Mouj.

From the old souqs, sea and sand to a modern marina lifestyle destination, Oman has it all.
