The Muttrah Souq is believed to be one of the oldest marketplaces in the world.

Like so many Arabian bazaars, the Muttrah Souq is a vibrant and bustling collection of colorful stalls filled with textile and spice dealers. Established as a major point of commerce in a vital shipping port, its geographic importance has clearly sustained the marketplace through the centuries to this day.
