    • Question to Westerner Travellers who Explored Oman

      Oman Dec 16, 2014 at 6:52 AM

      How easy would it be for an older woman alone to travel around the country? Can one see the country by taking public buses? And about how long would you say it would take to see Oman without rushing? Is there relatively cheap accomodation like youth hostels? Would love to hear from people who've done it.

      Driving in Oman

      Oman Nov 15, 2014 at 11:29 AM

      Hi there
      I'll be glad to hear your opinion of driving condition in Oman, chiefly in Muscat. I don't speak/read Arabic so that I suppose it would be not so easy for me. Any warnings, tips would be invaluable.
      I have already rented a 2D car for driving in Muscat and surroundings, so I exclude a desert adventure with this car.
      thank you

      Custom law

      Oman Nov 7, 2014 at 11:42 AM

      Hi there
      I've searched quite a lot websites looking for custom rules and the more I read the more I am confused. I found a lot of discrepancies in relation to bringing in some goods as alkohol, food and so on... I'll meet there the expat people who feel lack of some European delicacy so it would be nice to fetch them this and that, not infringing the law.
      In addition in my way is also the UAE, so their custom law must be taken into consideration as well.

      Could someone be so kind and shed light on this problem.

      Any advice from an experienced traveler?
      Thank you

      Staying in Muscat

      Oman Oct 9, 2014 at 12:33 AM

      Hi VT gurus
      Next month I am taking a challenge and go (alone) to Muscat. I intend to stay there for couple of days and take a few one/two days trips outside the city.

      I have a few questions.
      1. Can anyone recommend me a decent hotel close to the city center, which does not ruin my budget, around $100 per night. Do I ask for moon searching for a hotel with a small piece of greenery around?
      2. Can anyone point me out a reliable tour agency for my trips? ---- prices?
      3.Is it a good idea to rent a car and driving alone? --- personal and traffic (whithin/out the city) safety?
      4. Is my Polish driving licence valid in Oman? Or I need international one.
      5. Is something worth seeing around that is not widely known,a less touristy spot but still interesting ( including scenery)
      6. Is a public transport in Muscat as bad as is said ?
      7. What is avarage cost of modest living in Muscat?
      I would be extremely greatful for your response. :))
