Exploring Sultanate of Oman

I am expat living in Abu Dhabi for almost 9 years and as a human being i adopt the culture of the Arabian people and as I’ve said to myself I’m planning to travel in the GCC country or in any part of the Middle East.  I’m already here so i take the opportunity to travel in the neighbor country.  My first plan is Oman, Oman is the nearest country to United Arab Emirates and from Abu Dhabi to Muscat Oman it takes six hours non – stop driving.  And from Al Ain another city of UAE the border of Buraihmi Oman.  Me and my friends we plan to travel to Oman.  From Al Ain to the border of Buraihmi we need to pass to immigration of UAE to OMAN we pay the tourist fee its cost 250 dirham each person and the car registration as well. And after all this things we start to leave the place.  At the beginning of the road only few buildings you will see and most of it .. it’s a dessert and a rocky mountain surround.

From Buraihimi to Sohar City it’s about 3 hours and this is one of the side trip that we stop.

Sohar Beach : Sohar was traditionally a fishing town, but is more recently known as Oman’s industrial hub due to the massive developments in the Sohar Industrial Port.
