Al Batinah North Governorate ( محافظة شمال الباطنة ) sits northwest of Muscat, Oman. The biggest and most visited city in Ad Dhahirah Governorate is Sohar, which was an important Islamic port town that also doubled as the birthplace of Sinbad the Sailor (Legend of the Seven Seas from Arabian Nights was my go-to bedtime story!)
In Al Batinah North, you can find beautiful ocean views, the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, and numerous parks. Since Al Batinah North is right beside Muscat, a lot of the sites can be seen on a day trip.
