Default Going to Oman during Eid

Hello there,

Some of us are thinking to head to Oman during the Eid holidays and we thought sharing the idea here for those who are interested to tag along. I am sure many of you have already made plans and probably been there, but for those who have not and have not yet been to Oman perhaps this is a good time to go. The weather is also getting better.

The idea is to leave dubai on Thursday really early in the morning and take the Hatta highway and return to dubai Sunday evening. We would make a stop at Sohar and then continue to Muscatt ...takes approx 5 hours drive. We have thus far 2 cars and 3 people going.

We also found a 4 star hotel running a deal. Pay two nights and stay three. A ballpark figure would be 1000 aed for the deal.( hotel room for two with breakfast and wifi included)

If you are interested, send me a pm with your real name, number...please let me know if you are planning to go by car and whether you would be willing to give a ride for those who need.

Please dont take too much time thinking ( like lingering )about it as we will need to make reservations. I could bargain better prices with a bigger group no doubt, but I honestly find the deal already a steal the way it is ( meaning it is pretty damn good)

Thanks,
R.

We are going to do what most visitors do visit historic places and check around. If you are looking for a detailed itinerary upfront, we do not have that ready. We have an idea. After all some people might prefer doing other stuff like going for diving or go to places they ve never been before but have been lets say to muscat but want to explore the extreme west of Oman

We can discuss about those things once we have a list of people who want to join the trip, but honestly anybody can do whatever he/she feels like doing once there.

We put this post just to see if some really would like to join because when we were discussing this we thought that would be nice to extend the invite here. we know that some people are new in the country or feel like traveling but do not know enough people to do things together. I bet good ideas will pop up once there. People will read and propose options...I hope ....if they feel going as a group to some places

We are not saying that people should even stay in the same hotel....

No problems man since the last time we met, I realized that by the time we were coming with this, you would have probably planned the next 2 long holidays....but if you do have plans for the other ones please keep me posted.

Ibkiss,

If you mean you can join on Friday ( be in oman by friday) and return on Sunday..I do not see a issue. Remeber, we will leave thrusday so half of the day will be kind of gone. You can book the same hotel, but I am afraid the deal will not be applicable to you. And if you want you can tag along with us for the places we will visit on Friday.

For me Eid starts on Friday so I am not sure what you mean by second day of Eid. I am ignorant on these kind of holidays that are based on the moon calendar.
