From Muttrah to old Muscat, it is about four kilometers along the promenade along the coastal road. However, most tourists only promenade in Starý Muttrah and visit other attractions on the promenade by car. It always lives here in the early evening

Sightseeing park

About a kilometer from the center of Muttrah is the first stop – a small park with a fountain from where there is a beautiful view of Muttrah. It's more for photography, but in the morning, because otherwise you have the whole city in strong backlight.

Roundabout at Ryiam Park

In another 500 meters is the biggest attraction for locals – Ryiam Park. From the roundabout there is a nice view of the mountains, which look quite dramatic that they are only 100 meters above sea level.

Ryiam park

Ryiam Park is a popular place for locals. There is not only extensive greenery, a lake, but also fairground attractions and a strange lookout structure on a cut mountain.

Road to the lookout tower

From Riyam Park you can head to the observation tower. It doesn't seem like it, but there are quite a few stairs to the top

Observation tower

Thanks to the rock, the view is not completely circular, but it is still worth it. The entrance gate to old Muscat can already be seen on the horizon

View of Khalbu Park

Another of the parks can be seen across the bay – Khalbu. He is no longer directly on the Corniche, but he would probably be worth a visit.

View of Muttrah

The view of Muttrah is also worth it
