The International Trade Fair, located in Al Naseem Park, has witnessed a huge turnout during the first week of its opening, thanks to people who are coming to Muscat Festival to find a good bargain.
"We have been awaiting Muscat Festival to furnish our new house as this (the InternationalTrade Fair) offers a variety of first-class items at an affordable price," said Ahmed Al Balushi, with a big smile covering his face.
The Fair, in which 30 countries take part, has 440 stalls showcasing a wide range of goods, all of which are unique to the participating shops. In fact, the exhibition offers a variety of products to meet Omani customers' tastes and needs. "I am here with my family to buy some stuff for my wedding," said Fatma, a wife-to-be. She added, "The stuff on offer here, such as accessories and dresses,are hard to be found elsewhere."
The Omani products corner has a resounding presence. Guests can have a glimpse of a wide selection of first-rate Omani goods which are on offer at a reasonable price. Many shoppers are finding it a really good bargain.
Food lovers, likewise, have their fair share here as a wide variety of delicious Arabian foods await them. "I am very fond of Syrian sweet," Sami Al Hagri, a college student, exclaimed while tasting a piece of sweet with his friends. "We usually come to enjoy the different kinds of food exclusively found in the Festival."
In addition to shopping, the International Trade Fair provides its visitors a superb opportunity to learn more about the participating countries and their cultures. All in all, such an event is really worth dropping by.
Such good shows to meet the needs of low-income Omani citizens. It is an opportunity to break the daily routine of others
