We are a french couple going to Oman in August, and because it is way cheaper to fly to Dubai, we plan on going by bus from dubai to muscat.
Just few basics questions to confirm what I read (but not sure about it).
- Can we get the visa at the border when we arrive by bus ? Even with the night bus ?
- Is the night bus from Dubai still at 11pm ?
- Did somebody used SmartWings to come in Dubai ? is it a good company ?
Next month I will travel with a friend to Oman. We want to explore the country by car (preferably 4WD) and we are looking for a reliable and not too expansive car rent company. Is there someone who already have some experience with renting a car in Oman and can give us a name of a car rent company or/and other tips?
Thank you so much in advance!
I will spend a week in the Emirates visiting friends who can't take days off for a 5-day trip to Oman. I'm planning to go there from May 18-22. Is anyone around and keen to explore some spots and share some costs (day trips, concerts, markets, ...) with a 29-year-old female traveller from Germany?
As I haven't decided on going there by plane, bus or car (from Dubai) and also not on the hotel I am glad about some recommendations on this.
Looking forward to exchanging ideas!
Have a nice…
Hi all, I have been lucky enough to win a holiday to Oman but I have a couple of questions that I can't seem to find answers to on-line- I'm hoping you can help!!
What will I need to take with me to get the 10 day tourist visa?
My partner has a criminal record, mostly from when he was a stupid teenage boy! Nothing in the last 10 years but it does include drug and theft convictions. Will he have problems getting into the country?
Also we are not married so will this…
as far as this country is not as widely travelled as others I would like to share some newest informations. If it helps at least one person it would make me happy.
I arrived from Oman just today after midnight. I travelled via Dubai. So here are some points:
- Buses from Dubai to Muscat are from ONTC (type in googlemaps, it shows you where near Al Rigga metro it is). Schedule departure is every day at 6 am, 3 pm and 11 pm from Dubai and also same time from Ruwi. From Ruwi it leaves…
Hey there, I'm a solo traveler who will be in Oman from the 8th until the 12th. Not much time but I'll take advantage of what I have. I arrive at around noon and was thinking of exploring Muscat. I was then thinking that the next day I would explore a bit of the country (probably camp wherever possible)and then return the car back in Muscat on the 12th and then head to Dubai. If anyone wants to join for some company and to split costs lemme know!
i'm a female solo traveler and would like to do a day trip to wadi shab. the agencies doing that are too pricey for one person. i talked to Lifetime Tours and i like their program. But need company. write back soon if you're interested.
Hey everyone! It's me again :) We are two friends from Germany and Austria and we are spending a few days in Muscat from March 22-25. On the 23rd we would like to do a day tour to Nizwa and Jabal Shams leaving from Muscat in the morning and returning there in the evening. Since we don't want to rent a car, we wanted to ask if there's two people who are in a similar situation and would like to join us for this day tour? The price is about 300 Euros for the vehicle, so if there's four of us it…
Hey everyone! We are friends (one with German passport, one with Austrian passport) who are flying to Dubai on March 19th and will then spend ten days travelling around the UAE and Oman. I did a lot of research on the visa situation and now gathered some information that I would love for someone to confirm, just to be on the safe side :) We will go on a three day tour (by bus) from Dubai to Khasab/Musandam peninsula, then go back to Dubai, then the same day or the day after we will take a bus to…
