Visitors must dress conservatively especially women who must cover their hair, shoulders, and arms when they visit the mosque, men should wear trousers and not shorts.
Visit the Bait Al Zubair museum and the famous Mattrah Souq - one of the oldest markets in Oman - where you will have free time to buy souvenirs and gifts. The market is located at the ancient sea-front promenade Corniche, on a bay which ships visited from every part of the world and where two Portuguese forts, Jalali and Mirani, have stood watch for centuries.
