    Ina country filled with fortresses and castles, you can see why Bahla Fort captured the attention of UNESCO. Not ostentatious, it impresses with its age and grandeur. Although the interior was closed at the time of my visit, and some amount of renovation was still occurring outside, a visit to Bahla Fort is worthwhile, especially if you are visiting Nizwa, nearby.

    Like other parts of Oman, the people of Bahla are very friendly and the owner of the pottery factory is very happy to take a photograph with me before I left..

    When you are visiting the traditional clay pottery factories in Bahla, one of the highlights is the traditional furnace with its chimney. It is used to bake the clay.

    The best stuff to buy from Bahla are its famous clay potteries and handicrafts which are literally "fresh from the oven". There are many designs of all shops and sizes to choose from, just like the ones shown on the photograph. Of course you must remember to bargain, especially if you buy a lot and ask for discounts.
