Matrah is a highly recommended destination for travellers to Oman. There are many sights to see in this area; the Sultan's ship, old forts, jagged mountains, apartment facades built by the Portuguese, the corniche and Mutrah's old souq. The old souq sells everything from traditional clothes, frankincense, myrrh and antique jewellery to cheap electronics and gold. Although the shoppers are predominantly locals, the odd tourist can be seen and high-profile celebrities have been known to visit Mutrah souq while in Oman, such as Micheal Jackson and Kate Moss. Go to the souq early morning for slightly cheaper "morning" prices. Remember to haggle the prices, and to dress conservatively.
