Wadi Shab

This post is part of a series on our trip to Oman in October 2012, during the celebration of Eid Al Adha holidays. The temps have finally simmered down, perfect for the outdoors, yay:)

So after our early morning episode of “jumping overload” at the amazing Bimmah Sinkhole, we headed to our next destination and highlight of our trip, the beautiful Wadi Shab.

Beautiful Wadi Shab

Wadi Shab is where the 2012 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series Finals was held recently (27.09.12), and we were very curious to see and experience the place ourselves, 🙂

Muscat Evening Tour: Muttrah Souk, Corniche & Riyam Park

This post is part of a series on our trip to Oman in October 2012, during the celebration of Eid Al Adha holidays. The temps have finally simmered down, perfect for the outdoors, yay:)

After a super jam-packed morning tour of Muscat and a missed chance for an afternoon siesta, we continue exploring Muscat at sundown.

Muttrah Corniche, Sultan Qaboos Port & the Gulf of Oman

Sir Roger came to pick us up at 5 pm and we headed for Muttrah. If in the morning we just passed by the area, this time we got out of the car and explored the whole area on foot. 🙂

Muscat Day Tour: Muttrah, Qantab and Qurum Beach

This post is part of a series on our trip to Oman in October 2012, during the celebration of Eid Al Adha holidays. The temps have finally simmered down, perfect for the outdoors, yay:)

After about 12 hours of restful, uninterrupted sleep, we’re up for our Day 2!

And as we travelled far south yesterday to marvel at the surreal beauty of Wadi Bani Khalid & Muqal Cave, our route for the day will be “nearby.”

That is, in and around Muscat

We got on the road and yet again, pass by the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque with its striking golden dome. Too bad we didn’t had a chance to visit inside, next time therefore. 🙂

Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque

Our hotel map / guide indicated that it’s located near to both the Beach and the Grand Mosque. True, but not “across the street near.” More like a kilometer near, Muscat is soooo huge lah! 🙂
