Rumored to be the home of the famous sailers Ahmed bin Majid and mythical character Sinbad, Sohar is the perfect collision of culture and modern society.
The city of Sohar is full of culture and history, with a beautiful urban twist! The city has huge malls and skyscrapers as well as some of the gorgeous beaches in Oman. The souqs and monuments are full of the country's history. The Islam religion is prominent throughout, as there are beautiful mosques in every corner of the city. A small drive into the outskirts of the city leads you to beautiful deserts. Sohar is full of things to do, whether it be watching a camel race, shopping for traditional handicrafts or simply exploring the splendid beaches.
