    Very impressive to see this Mosque. We advice you to take a guided tour so you have someone who can explain everything you see. If you are planning to visit make sure you arrive early and take apron 1 hour to see the whole place.
    After the tour we went to the visitor centre where we could ask all questions we had about the Mosque, the Islam and the Koran. It was well worth the visit!

    This is a must visit when in Muscat. There is a huge amount of carved teak and the double staircase in the entrance is very beautiful. Our guide told us how the size and shape of the stage can be altered and even the walls of the auditorium can go in and out. It truly is a spectacular building

    The Wadi is amazing. Its desert meets tropical climate meets fresh water meets mountains. Really nice temperature to swim in as well. Even in the summer months! What I don't see here is guidance that the water is actually quite deep. Reaching over 3 meters at some points so recommended that you are a decent swimmer.

    beautiful place. Rent a car before you go there - amazing colors for the water. Don't go during Eid season since it was very crowded, we couldn't swim in the water.
    make sure to go early morning, we went around noon, and it was very hot.
    Ladies should wear conservative clothes (not above the knee, and no spaghetti straps)

    make sure to make a stop later to "Fins" beach, it's very close to the sinkhole.

    This definitely is one of the best beaches in Muscat and having a long walk there feels therapeutic. Anytime of the day is suitable to visit this place and is also lined with fine cafes which makes it even better.

    We stopped here on a cruise excursion that combined a tour of the city center with a stop at the Souq. As an amateur photographer I found the combination of old and new worlds to be interesting subjects. My suggestion: travel light. My DSLR with a zoom lens was a great choice. The city center shots needed speed due to the motion of the bus. The choice of zoom lens made for easy and quick grab shots. As always watch for distracting reflections in bus windows. look ahead to be prepared for opportunities. Ps: we traveled here just before the pandemic hit.

    A great experience when you travel to Muscat.. The drive from Muscat to Qantab itself is great, and once you reach the beach its quite unique in its views.
    Boating is available for those who like that. Avoid summer as its typically hot.

    Really enjoyable - well worth a visit if you are interested in military history. My personal guide, who was a member of the Royal Guard, was excellent. The location of the museum is lovely, Excellent exhibits - I was mostly interested in the more modern stuff from 20th century and covering the Jebel war through the Dhofar rebellion up to present day - there is plenty of that, well displayed.
