      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 ...

    • How much money will I need?

      Oman Dec 17, 2013 at 5:55 PM

      Hello! I am an American girl who will be traveling to Muscat for a 4 week long Arabic intensive. I've already paid for my lodging (I'll be staying in a dorm as a part of the program); however, meals are not included in tuition. I'm wondering around how much money I'll need for food for those four weeks- it's hard for me to tell how much things cost there. So, 3 meals a day for 30 days. I'll prefer to eat the least expensive food there is (I hear it's Indian or other Southeast Asian food). Thank you for your help!

    • take the car in Dubai and leave it in Kashab..possible??

      Khasab Dec 15, 2013 at 2:37 PM

      I read everythingh about driving to Kashab. What I cannot understand is if it's possible to rent the car in Dubai drive to Kashab and leave it there since then I will be interested in taking the cruise for 2 days in the Musandam peninsula.
      Please Help.
      I cannot find any bus that goes from Dubai to Kashab, very strange being just 187 Km. Strangly, It looks cheaper to go from Dubai to Muscat and from Muscat to kashab by sense...

      We're going to musandam next week, hoping to camp. We'll be driving down the Dubai-Khasab road. Does anyone have tips on camping spots? Is it safe? Alternatively, is it possible to stay somewhere outside Khasab?

      We'd also love to rent kayaks or a boat for a day, so any tips on that gratefully received. We've heard it's possible to get locals to drop you off by boat on a beach and come pick you up the following day.

      We will be in Muscat on Friday, January 31, on a cruise stop. We have not been able to find any tours offered on that day because it is a Friday. Do any local agencies offer any tours on that day, and if not, what can one do on their own in Muscat on a Friday?
