Muscat as other cities of the country does not accept bright and revealing clothes. Surely the city visitors should not wear ethnic outfits however the look for city tours should be thoroughly chosen. The best choice will be a classic look in quiet colors. Plenty of jewelry and eye catching accessories are not accepted as well.
Muscat is a modern city which in unique manner fuses the traditions of past ages and the achievements of modern civilization. Many citizens give preference to European way of life devoting major time to work, family life and routine fuss. However there are many local residents who have devoted their lives to ethnic crafts. Fishery, farming, breeding of camels, horses and goats are the main ethnic crafts and occupations which just few years ago were the only way to survive for local people. One of the brightest and most impressive symbols considering local crafts is numerous wells which can be found in deserts. As many years ago so now natives need to cross vast deserted areas herding the cattle. The wells are for them the only source of fresh water in desert. A branched underground water supply system of many channels was developed many centuries ago.
