Saying with ‘locals’ is the best way to explore a new area, they know the easiest way to see the ‘must sees’ have special places the guide books might not know about and can help you navigate the cultural difference with ease. I suppose this is why Air B&B does so well too.
As we squeezed so much into out week away it’s more than I can shoe-horn into one post, so the ‘Muscat Diaries’ will be a string of posts about our stay and I hope you enjoy reading them. I’d have never thought to holiday to Oman, but it is such a beautiful country with a fabulous diversity of places to visit. We took in some culture at The Grand Mosque, ticked the ‘adventure box’ by walking and swimming at a Waddy (beyond beautiful!) enjoyed some luxury at high end hotels (The Shangri la and Al Bustan Palace) as well as chilling out my Amanda’s pool and their beach club. Oh - can I go back now please!
