Oman

Oman

Many people said Oman is beautiful- desert, mountains and seasides. I have not been to the desert(because I have been to too many:P), but mountains and seasides are definitely the highlight of Oman. esp those beautiful Wadi:)

Unfortunately when i arrived Oman, they just had 3 days of flooding rain and all the wadi was flooded. But I had looked through the web photos…..wadi Shab in Oman is amazing! So maybe next times you guys go there, send me some amazing photos so I can be jealous of you:P

But I did went to bimmah sinkhole near Muscat while it’s 38 degree outside. Dying for a swim:)

Yes, If you travel to Dubai and some free time, you can actually take a bus there to Muscat Oman. It took a little bit more than 6 hours but it’s really comfortable. I decided to travel just around muscat because I have been to so many mountains and desert. But if you have never been to any, pls remember Oman is a very big and beautiful country…..you should take more time to travel around!

But traveling around Oman is NOT cheap at all. The cheapest hotel I can found over there is no less than US $45 and it’s low season already! And most people need to travel with cars cus public transportation sucks. I talked to most people who had traveled around Oman told me it cost them US $120/day or more!. I was lucky because a taxi driver took me everywhere for free!!! Thanks to the hospitality of the Omanis 😛

So, if you ask me whether Oman worth visiting? I will say yes or no! If you have guts, I suggest you to visit Yemen…it’s better(and I will show you) but Oman is definitely much better than Dubai, Kuwait, Barhain or Qatar:P

  1. Dearest Tammy,
    That was for sure a very worthwhile stop and breathtaking architecture. You are so right about becoming over-saturated with dessert after dessert and you don’t want to see more.
    Excellent photos.
