This is a pretty great mall in Muscat with a wide variety of shops and a great hypermarket and decent food court as well!

For me the Muscat City Centre is the best shopping mall in Oman. With a Carrefour hypermarket and plenty of other shops.

As a world traveler I would say that Muscat is like a small fishing town. Quite low key, though very interesting to visit.
As a person living in Dubai for some years, I would definitely recommend you to visit Muscat/Oman as the weather conditions are enjoyable, no humidity and some fresh air with plenty of cool breezes.
Plenty of green, trees and scenery which makes your mind calm down.
As Muscat is Islamic, you can see and experience an original Arabic heritage. Just go down to visit the Souq and you see it’s more original than the one in Dubai.
Definitely a great place for a getaway.

Natural beauty is one of the reasons that can lead you to Oman, but it's not the only one. Long and exciting history of thousands of years , warm and friendly people, plus a variety of accommodations on the expensive side though, can make your journey to Oman unforgettable. One of the things I did like about Oman, is the low rising buildings that respect the environment. There is a lot of green, something rather unusual for the Arab peninsula and beautiful pristine beaches with blue waters. The waterfront in different cities- Muscat, Sohar,Sur , Salalah and even in small towns is really something you don't see often around the globe. There is a great variety of food offered with seafood being the main attraction for your palate.
Travel around is quite safe and easy in the newly constructed roads or highways but the secondary roads can offer an interesting alternative. Sultanate of Oman is a Muslim country and you have to keep that in mind especially if you travel there during Ramadan period like I did. There is a quite interesting market with traditional Omani products and with interesting antiques but you have to be aware of imported souvenirs made in China. A trip to Salalah in the south is a must and if you do not like driving you can always go there by plane.
Oman is home to a lot of luxurious 5star hotels but you can also find a lot of good quality places to stay by the seaside, in wadis, in the desert or in the mountainous areas.

Tired of sitting in the hotel, I stretched my legs here. It's well laid out, very clean and the staff are very friendly. Plenty of places to eat, mostly fast(ish) food and a good selection f shops. Getting a taxi home is easy. I am sick of the reviews that say "nothing like Dubai" that's because it's not Dubai, it's Oman and has it's own identity. If you want Dubai then go to Dubai.

This is one of the older (but very well maintained) malls in Muscat.
It's got plenty of stores, coffee shops, fast food dining, Vox cinemas (I think the best in Muscat) and some nice restaurants too.

Muscat is one of those places where you will find both UK and US based stores, but you won't really find the best variety in terms of the items or clothes as compared to Dubai. This mall has a lot of international brands, mostly in the mid-range category. So you will find stores ranging from Zara, Max, H&M, Marks and Spencer, Stradivarius, Forever 21, Mango, Next, Bath and Body Works, the Body Shop and others when it comes to shopping and everything from Starbucks, Tim Hortons, Costa Coffee, McDonalds, Pinkberry, Baskin Robbins, KFC, Santinos, Chili's, Nando's, the Gourmet Burger Kitchen and many more when it comes to food. They also have a hypermarket called Carrefour where you get everything from groceries and food to appliances and electronics under one roof. They also have a play area for kids called the Magic Planet.

Note that this mall doesn't have any luxury stores such as Gucci or LV (no place in Muscat so far has those). But it does have a Mont Blanc Store.

If you are staying near the Airport, this mall will not be too far a drive for you, but if you are staying at the Shangri La or the Al Bustan Palace, or any hotel in the Ruwi or Wadi Kabir Area, this mall will be quite a drive for you (1 hour plus). You might then be better off going to the Muscat Grand Mall or Qurum City Centre for a mall experience.

Wonderful coastal city stretching for many mile along the sandy ,then rocky coast. The city is backed by jagged little hills so everything runs parallel to the coast. For City the beach is sandy, flat and great to walk and wander along. Everyone like to ride ,cruise or in the evening stroll along the various promenades.
No one walks anywhere , its like the US- they take their car.
Warm friendly and very welcoming , no pressure to buy at any point was our experience [except the taxis] which look for the tourists to pick up. You do negotiate your fare, as there are no meters- but it is still good value.
Old Muscat has nice rocky coast and you can walk to the harbour.
At night , the lights the shops and sitting out becomes the norm and to get around you do need car/taxi as there is no easy bus routing and no trains or trams.
Airport can be a bit chaotic as it seems to be taking years to build the new terminals , but the most astonishing thing is just how clean and litter free the whole city is- its like Zurich by the sea, and with the wonderful sun. Cleanest city we have been to!
Omani's seem to be enjoying their City and Country and have always been hospitable at every interchange.

Muscat, the capital of Oman, is a remarkably clean well maintained city. I was shocked as were many of my traveling companions at the superb infrastructure and social systems available for the citizens. During my visit I found no beggars, no road trash, streets bearing impressive light poles.....The Sultan is respected as he should when understanding the envious benefits he maintains for the citizens...universal health care, free education including university, equal rights for all women, retirement at 60 with full salary.....would I return? YES

If you look at the information provided by Trip Advisor on this post it is actually for the Muscat City Centre Mall out by the airport. not about souks etc. The mall is relatively new and has good parking and food court. It does not have a great range of shops especially for ladies and gents clothes. It has a Marks and Spencer which is really expensive but their stock is so old at least one year old and they have very few sizes in each. I tried to get trousers and they did not have my size 36 waist in 10 of their ranges. A complete waste of time.
It has a reasonable range of restaurants on the first floor which is well used and a really good cinema which shows the latest films. We used this on our last day before going to airport.
Has some reasonable shops for window shopping bur are around 25% more expensive than the UK.
