Tours/Expeditions: List with all our scheduled tours and expeditions
The Muttrah area, situated at the core of Oman's largest harbor, is a place that is celebrated for its rich history of commercial trade, a characteristic port, and long-standing fishery traditions. The city of Muttrah is home to the original fish market, which was built in 1960, and has been a central part of the local community for decades. Today, the new fish market stands as a tribute to both the past and the future of Oman, as it marks a continuity of the region's trade and fishing traditions.
The newly constructed fish market is designed to accommodate the growing needs of Oman's fish industry, which has seen a significant increase in recent years. The market is located in close proximity to the city's original fish market, and is set to provide visitors with a unique opportunity to experience Oman's rich cultural heritage.
The market is set to become a hub for local trade and commerce, as well as a popular destination for tourists visiting the region. The new fish market in Muttrah is a symbol of Oman's rich cultural history, a testament to its growing tourism industry, and a vital part of the local economy. As such, it stands as a true tribute to both the past and the future of Oman.
