BIG BUS CITY TOUR
Double decker busses are always fun, especially if they offer a hop-on- and hop-off service that stops at most Muscat landmarks. Stops include the Sultan’s Palace/The National Museum, Shatti Al Qurum close to Qurum Beach and other attractions.
The afternoon can be spent watching dolphins frolic in the sea, followed by a beautiful sunset Dhow cruise starting from Marina Bandar Al Rowdah or Al Mouj Muscat.
MUSCAT TO KHASAB
A high-speed ferry travels from Muscat to Oman’s northernmost region – Musandam. Take the opportunity to sit back and relax. Alternatively, flights are available.
Once in Khasab, this port town is just the starting point for a number of fun-filled activities, including mountain biking in the surrounding mountains or a Dhow cruise.
There is no better way to explore Musandam’s many fjords and attractions, such as Telegraph Island, than by boat, which also gives one the opportunity for dolphin watching, snorkelling and swimming.
The coastal village of Kumzar is best reached by boat and has its own language – special permission is required to stop here.
KHASAB TO MUSCAT
Return to Muscat using the high-speed ferry or by air and relax on the way.
Once you arrive, take the opportunity to visit Old Muscat, the area of Muttrah, where you can walk the picturesque corniche and purchase souvenirs from the traditional souq.
