Traditions, Lifestyle & Habits in Muscat

Local people are rather sociable and hospitable, they are respective and attentive towards foreign guests and are eagerly interested in traditions and culture of foreign visitors. City residents are tactful, polite and mannerly. One can justly say that these character traits of local folks are inborn. However the local people honor their native culture above all things and require the same highly respective attitude from foreign guests as well. Thus the city guests are offered to avoid smoking and eating in public places as this is not common. Smoking and eating is acceptable only in specially allotted places. Otherwise the action will promote outrage in local people.

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.
