    Meeting new friends at Ras Al Hadd, Oman

    Favorite thing: My Oman trip was wonderful because I made many new friends, including this family which I met at Ras Al Hadd. They are staying in Muscat and came to Ras Al Hadd for their holidays. They had stayed in Singapore, my homeland, in the past and we had a good time chatting and exchanging information admist a nice buffet dinner.

    Seagulls along the beach

    Seagulls taking off at Ras Al Jinz beach, Oman

    Favorite thing: There are plenty of seagulls on the beach, especially at Ras Al Hadd. You can see them staying on the beach and then fly to the nearby ocean for feeding before coming back to the beach to rest again. Apparently the sea off Oman is full of marine life which provides a very good feeding ground for the seagulls.

    Round-about at Sur, Oman

    Favorite thing: There are many traffic round-abouts in Oman and some of these round-abouts have interesting structures in the centre. When we were filling up petrol at the kiosk, I managed to take a photograph of the round-about at Sur which is of islamic design and has paintings of traditional activities on all 4 sides.

    Watching the boats entering & leaving Sur

    Boats entering Sur, Oman

    Favorite thing: There is a nice spot near to the old watch towers of Sur next to the water channel, where you can relax and watch the boats entering & leaving Sur. This is also the place where local people are being ferried across the channel to different parts of the town. There are benches here, so you can sit and admire the daily livelihood of the people living in Sur.
