Have you ever heard of the provincial capital of Musandam? It's a small place, buzzing with life! When you stroll through the souq, you're greeted with a symphony of languages. It's a linguistic cocktail, with a mix of Arabic, English, Hindi, and even Portuguese, thanks to the unique Kumzari language spoken there.

The harbour? It's a hive of activity, especially when a cruise ship docks. You can feel excitement as fishing boats and dhows glide gracefully in and out of creeks. They're busy with daily routines, like checking lobster pots or casting nets in nearby bays. It is a dance on water that's both timeless and mesmerizing.
