      Is a car essential in Muscat?

      Muscat Apr 16, 2014 at 1:33 AM

      We will be in Muscat for three days at the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah which, I know, is a little far out from Muscat centre and from the Grand Mosque. We will stay there prior our two weeks self-drive all over Oman but we did not order a car for our days in Muscat. Are taxis easily available? Are there taxi stands at, say, the Grand Mosque, the soukh, LuLu hypermarket, etc.? Or is it better to have your own car? We're not very keen on driving in Muscat ...

      turtle watching without a guided tour

      Sur Oct 21, 2012 at 9:23 AM

      we unfortunately seem to have been too late in making a reservation for the Ras al Jinz tours and we still would love to watch turtles. Anyone knows how/where that can be done without breaking the law/ disturbing the critters ?

      Many thanks,

    • Trekking in Hajar Mountains

      Tiwi Mar 13, 2007 at 10:44 AM


      I wonder if anyone of you has ever done a trek in Hajar Mountains in UAE. We want to go for a one day trek but all the tour operators seem to offer only 4x4 while we would prefer to walk. Do you know if it is possible to hire a guide privately that would take us around?
