Dubai to muscat with family?

by Khurram73

Guys

We are planning to visit Muscat from Dubai through road in July end- August first week.

We do have a valid Kuwaiti residency and definetely will take a UAE visit visa ( on arrival) to spend two days in Dubai. However there are two questions , related to Oman visit///

1. Will we require visit visa for Oman too? will it be available on land borders while crossing from Dubai to Muscat.. if we enter oman , our visit visa to dubai will be cancelled so how we can resturn to dubai from Oman?

2. What is average temperature in Muscat those days ? Will it be hot like other countries in Middle East?


Regards

Khurram

Answer visa questions is almost impossible if you don't state your nationality.
Yes, you will almost certainly need a visa for Oman also, unless you are of a GCC nationality. Whether or not you can get that on arrival, again depends on your nationality. When returning to Dubai/UAE you will need either a double-entry visa or a new visa. Some nationals don't need a visa for Oman if they have a Dubai entry stamp.

hi,

It seems that it is good idea to apply for multiple entries in Dubai , at Dubai Immigration airport....It will help us in rentering Dubai from Muscat....

We will try to take Oman visit visa from kuwait ( for whole family).. it would be more safe....

But what about temperature in Muscat? we are looking for some place around Dubai with lower temperatures... Does it worth Muscat to visit for that purpose or some other good places around Dubai can help us for that purpose?

By the way what are the charges of Hatta Taxi from Dubai to Oman? Can we have some big rent a car for around 6-7 family members?

Regards

Khurram

You can't do that. Either you don't need a visa/get just a passport stamp valid for 60 days, in which case you'll just get a new one when you re-enter, or you need to arrange for a multiple-entry visa in advance through a sponsor.

The temperatures will be about the same in the areas all around Dubai, and July/August is the worst time. Mid-to high forties celcius, even 50C, and humidity in the 90% range.

You still haven't told us what passport you travel on, so the visa questions are hard to answer. Rules are different for different passports.

Travel Tips for Muscat

The Omanians loves their cars

by georeiser

The Omanians loves their cars. Big, fast and gasolin consuming cars with aircondition. You need a car to get around in Muscat. The streets are wide and highlighted in the landscape, with almost no sidewalks.

A little respect goes a long way

by MNRR

You only have to be a little considerate of local customs, as Oman is still an Islamic Country that is trying to come to terms with Tourism and all that implies. Covering of shoulders till just below the elbow is fine for women and men should wear long trousers so as not to offend the Omanis. Learning just a phrase or two like Salaam Aleikum (the most common greeting in Arabia) and other phrases will always be greeted with a smile. When sitting the soles of your feet should not be facing anybody as this is considered rude. Accept food with your right hand if possible as the left hand is thought to be 'unclean' and used for other purposes. If offered coffee in the tiny coffee cups, when you finish shake the cup from side to side to signify you do not want any more, or else you may find your cup being filled time and time again. If taking photographs of the local people please ask permission from them, after all how would you like to have a camera thrust in your face without anybody asking your first? The phrase to ask permission is.. Moomkin Sura?

Day Trips from Muscat

by wadibash

There are several choices for day trips within a 100 to 200 kilometres from Muscat. What you will need is a salon car, a picnic basket and lots of water.
Here are a few choices:

Take the road to Nizwa, a former capital of Oman. Visit the fort, the falj Daris, the souk and watch the animal auction that takes place every Friday morning around 8 a.m.On the way to Nizwa look for sign posts to Birkat al Mauz and explore this ancient village.

Drive out of the capital area and at Barka take a turn to Nakhal. You will run through date plantations and arrive at the Nakhal Fort. From here the hot springs for which the place is famous is just a few kilometres away

The road beyond Nakhal leads to Rustaq which again was an ancient capital - the fort here is magnificient. There are hot springs here as well

In the opposite direction take a drive to Quriyat starting at the Wadi Adai roundabout. Quriyat is a sea coast town approximately 90 kilometres from Muscat.See the fort, the little town and ask for directions to Hail al Ghaf - an amazing verdant village just a few kilometres from Quriyat. From Quriyat another route takes you to Mazarah, Wadi Daykah and the site of the huge dam that is nearing completion on this Wadi.

Another easy day tripfrom Muscat is to Yeti and Sifah. Both are seaside fishing villages and provide a perfect picture of a traditional Omani fishing village.

Most petrol pumps have toilets somewhere in the rear. You may also find little stores selling things like soft drinks and snacks. Tea, coffee and soft drinks are also available at outlets that say COFFEE SHOP.

The roads are fabulous and the people are most helpful and hospitable.

Incidentally a wadi is a dry river bed which sometimes may have varying levels of water in it. A falaj is the name for the ancient canals for water and a souk is the name for a bazar

Arabic Dates

by peaceness98

different types of dates have different seasons, when muslims break their fast in Ramadhan it is usually with a piece of date and some yoghurt drink or bitter arabic coffee (shot like sizes)

Omani dates are used to make various types of dishes, bread, sweets, etc

I normally like the dates that are mashed, and not the fresh ones as the picture..but thats up to your preference If you can find the mashed dates with sesame seeds, their yummy! you take a bit with your fingers (not a full handful) and mash it a bit more before you chuck it in dates are expensive (in demand), better types cost more
depending on the season and quantity.

Local Cuisine

by peaceness98

Try:
1. Ibn Ateeq behind the Shell Petrol Station in Al Khuwair, facing the main road, behind Muscat Holiday Inn - for traditional Omani and Yemeni food. A three-course meal costs under R.O. 2.000 per person- Tel. No. +968-603225

2. Ofair - local food, next to Ibn Ateeq- three meal course per person around RO 4.000. Tel. No. +968-693965

3- New Local Omani Cuisine place (Can't remember it's name for the life of me)- behind the Sultan's Palace in Mutrah/Sidab area.

4- Sablat Al Bustan- nice ambeince, more expensive. 1- Khabeesa (sweet)
2- Khubuz Rikhal (bread)
3- Fresh grilled fish
4- Mashakeek (grilled meat/chicken on skewers)
