I'm planning to go to Oman in January and do a self guided tour on a motorcycle through the country.
According to Google, there are only agencies that offer small tours.
Does any of you know, where to rent a Bike (Africa Twin or similar) for 3 or 4 weeks?
Thanks a lot.
I tried searching online but couldn't find much info on it!
How difficult are the treks in the mountains (Jebel Shams, Jebel Adhkar), Wadis (wadi shab, wadi tiwi, wadi bani awf) and the villages (Misfah, Birkat Al Mauz, Bilad Sayt)? I'm travelling with my mum who's in her early to mid fifties. Having lived in a city all our lives, we haven't done much trekking before! I have done some easy to moderate hikes overseas before but my mum has not.
Also, how is the temperature like in…
My boyfriend and I are looking at traveling to Muscat in Sept. I have been looking online for rules regarding unmarried western couples sharing a hotel room.
Any help would be appreciated!
Hello all -
I plan on being in Al Ain on July 9th on my way to China. I was hoping to continue on from Al Ain by bus to Muscat where I'll be catching my flight east on the 10th late at night. I'm a US citizen.
Does anyone have experience with the Visa on Arrival process at Al Ain/Buraimi? Is there a bus that foreigners can reliably take? I could use any and all advise on this since I can't seem to find much reliable information of recent... maybe someone can point me to something I missed!
We have just returned from a spectacular journey through Oman and are in need of a bit of help. While road tripping through the mountains and deserts of Oman we were accompanied by a great local radio station playing only Arabic music. We tuned this in on 106.2 fm but I cannot for the life of me find this online. Anyone in or from Oman know the call letters or the name of the station? I would love to keep listening, but as I said, much googling has come up empty.
My daughter and I are traveling to Salalah in Sept/October for a Workaway experience for about a month. We would like to hire a car so we can explore on our own on our days off. Can anyone recommend a car-hire company in Salalah? We used Marks tours in Muscat some years ago and found them really good, but can't find anything similar searching on Google. Any advice gratefully accepted.
I will be taking a week long stopover in Muscat at relatives while travelling back to Germany where I reside. I would like to ask if we can visit Dubai from Muscat on a rental car and can we then re-enter Oman. I am a citizen of Pakistan but I reside in EU and has the residency there.
In nov I'm going to visit Oman for 3 weeks. I would like your recommendation for the right quarter of Muscat to stay. I will be pedestrian there and user of public transport. So my accomodation should not be too far away from places of interest and have good connections. Besides that: do you have any proposals for daytrips to the surroundings outside this big city?
I need a hero!
...because I lost my Hero 5 in Wadi Bani Khaled. I am willing to pay $200 to someone who can find and return it (in Muscat). I realize that by posting this on a public forum, someone might just find it and keep it, but if that's you, I would simply love the photos from it. Right now it is simply polluting this wonderful spot in a beautiful country.
It snapped out of my wrist strap jumping from the second bridge (by the cafe), and unfortunately I was unable to find it and had to…
