I have visited the Souq previously, the shops have increased but the quality has not improved much. Apart from Frankincense in many different varieties& and some oils, there is not much worth the trip. It is disappointing in all honestly if you are looking for...More

To the A-Husn Souq from the al baleed hotel even a free shuttle. There is also incense in every form, perfumes and traditional headgear, Oriental hospitality - and when there is only one tea in one of the restaurants

The vendors were calm and very pleasant. When they hassled it was done with good grace. They accepted "no" and the bartering was good fun.

Al Husn Souq is an old traditional market for shopping of frankincense, local handicrafts and souvenirs. I had to shop for Frankincense and Omani handcrafted cap.
