Travel Theme: Multiples

It’s the beginning of the New Year and Ailsa has another photo challenge for us this week on the theme: MULTIPLES. Well, this sounds an interesting post because it somehow attract positive vibes for us to receive multitudes of blessings, gifts, successes, and happiness for the whole year through.

For now, I will again showcase one of Oman’s favorite tourist destinations and that is the NIZWA SOUQ.

The city of Nizwa was once a major trading point of Oman in the ancient times. The “souq” which means market is bustling with local and traditional items sold by local merchants around Oman and other neighboring countries in the Arab Peninsula. Many tourists will come here to buy souvenirs of multiple items such as clay pots, figurines, lamps, postcards, frames, canes, jewelries, and many more.

      Hi Abigail..this place is located in the interior of Oman surrounded by earth-toned colored mountains but the place is historical because it was an active trading place in the ancient days. Today, many tourists are coming here to buy souvenirs from shops and visit the nearby massive Nizwa Fort as well. I will blog later more about the souq and the fort.
