Unlike Dubai, Oman is a naturally diverse country even though it is not so popular as a favorite tourist destination. But with the booming nature of Oman tourism over the past years, the culture, history as well as nature have become popular especially among solo travelers.
Is Oman safe to solo travel?
Oman is one of the safest countries in the world to solo travel regardless of your gender. Although it was initially not a tourist destination, locals are now more acceptable to see tourists around. When it comes to the people of Oman, they are very polite always willing to offer help if asked for.
Where to stay at Muscat?
Oman is a no-hostel country. So your only option is to find a Muscat hotel that fits your budgetary concerns. From luxury hotels the likes of Al Falaj Hotel Muscat to various guesthouses, you have your options to select from when it comes to your accommodation needs.
Laws that you should adhere to
In case you drive your own vehicle to get about in Oman, you must obey all the traffic rules because Oman is highly strict on those. Avoid alcohol as much as possible because this is a Muslim country and no, you can’t carry your fur babies there with you either!
Travel and transport within Oman
There is no Uber or Careem to be found in Oman. The only transport company in the country is Mwasalat and they have a bus service too. However, it is ideal if you have the apps of taxi services downloaded when you visit Oman for your safe side.
