Statues at the Mutrah Cornicle waterfront
When walking along the wonderful waterfront of the Mutrah Cornicle overlooking the Muscat harbour, you will discover it is lined with many interesting statues which are very colourful. One example is the statue of the bird shown in this photograph.
Grand Mosque: Female Prayer's Hall
The female prayer's hall of the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is located at the side of the mosque and is predictably smaller than the male prayer's hall with less decorations. There are mounted televisions in this hall where the females would see the prayer ritual in the male prayer's hall and follow accordingly.
Hot Air Balloon Over the Desert
There is a rumour that there will be a Hot Air Balloon launching in Oman (Wahiba Sands Desert to be exact) sometime this year. I have been in one before and it is the most exhillerating and magical way to see any type of landscape especially the desert where its beauty lies in its vastness. If I hear about a launch date I will post it and if anyone hears about it before me please let me know!!!
Walking sticks are popular with Omani men. You can find either bamboo sticks, or fine wood with silver handles
plain and carved A nice stick with brass handle and engrave something like your name on it RO 3- RO 10
better quality can get up to RO 100
