Oman Avenues Mall

Located right across the road from the Muscat Gran Mall, the Avenues is home to middle- and upmarket brands. The mall features an impressive food court with everything from pizza to sushi on offer. There is a hyper market inside with one of the widest selections of groceries on the city, and children's entertainment areas are available as well.

Shopping

Visitors to Muscat are free to choose between an authentic shopping experience in the souqs and modern, air-conditioned shopping malls established in the recent years (primarily in central Muscat and its upmarket suburb of Qurum). The souqs in Muscat and Muttrah are a vibrant, lively experience fit for those ready to haggle and actively pursue great bargains. Clothing, leather goods, local art and handicrafts, ceramics, gold and jewelry are some of the items on sale in the city's windy souqs. Western-style shopping malls, on the other hand, sell primarily international brand clothing and accessories, and often house grocery stores, food courts and entertainment venues.
