I had some issues at immigration, in my UAE visa picture I have my natural short hair and I am sporting some long braids right now, so the guy at the desk was confused and called over his supervisor. The supervisor gave him a look like that is the same person and I was on my way. #travellingwhileblack
We stayed to the beautiful Crowne Plaza which had a stunning view.
Here are a few things I purchased:
The next day we did a hop on hop off bus tour.
Beautiful craftsmanship. It was only built in 2011 with marble imported from Vienna and wood from Burma. The walls are hand painted with gold and the whole building is stunning. I would live to come back and see a ballet it an opera here.
Another great stop was the Marina.
None of the taxis in Oman have meters I found this interesting, so you always have to bargain the price.
Omani food is similar to most middle eastern dishes.
If you are living in the UAE and are looking for a quick weekend getaway head to Oman, you will not be disappointed!
