Desert adventures are calling When people talk about going to the desert, the first thing that comes to mind is visiting the Rimal Al Sharqiya where the best desert camps are located. The dunes of Khabbat Al Ja’adan are often ignored by many travellers and tourists and the Omanis who frequent the area are thankful for this as this means, they can have it to themselves. Here, as soon as the temperature drops, dozens of four-wheel drives and buggies come flocking, mainly driven by some of Oman’s most prolific dune bashers. Khabbat Al Ja’adan comes in different names depending on who you ask. Some people simply refer to it as the dunes of Barka given its proximity to the area while the officials from Oman Tourism refer to it as Ramlat Tawq, the sand dunes that extend for 10 kilometres and are located between the Wilayat of Barka and Nakhal in Al Batinah Governorate. Others call it by the name of the wadi where it is located. At some of its best seasons, the number of adventurers coming here for dune bashing can go as high as 500, an incredible number but is to be expected because this is, after all, the closest sand dunes from the capital reachable within a two-hour drive. With the cold season almost here, we listed a few things that people do when they go to this extreme-sport enthusiast haven. Scaling the heights Think of a wall. Angle the wall a certain way that you can actually run a car up and down on it. Now pour in tonnes of sand and imagine the exhilarating feeling of driving off the wall as the sand shift below the wheels providing a challenge that only the best drivers can get out of. This is dune bashing at its finest and nothing has gotten more attention as a desert activity than this. Although we haven’t heard of a fully organised dune bashing competition happening at Khabbat Al Ja’adan, it surely will become the next big thing for this area as dune bashing, after all, is one experience you can never truly forget. Picnic on a hill Ask any Omani what their families love doing on a weekend, and one of the top choices is definitely a picnic. During the Khareef season, when the temperature is at its best, the green hills and mountains of Dho

8 places to see in Muscat for free Muscat: Muscat is a stunning city and it’s filled with some of the friendliest people in the world. So, if you are looking for something fun and interesting to do this weekend that involves minimal expenditure, here are some of the places that you might want to visit: Old Muscat It is surrounded by water and dusty mountain. It is home to some of the biggest tourist attractions in Muscat. The area is worth a walk around especially to visit the National Museum and to take a photo of Al Alam Palace. Forts One of the easiest things to see when sightseeing in Muscat is forts. You can easily find one right on the hill in Muttrah. It is open for visitors from Saturday to Thursday, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. On Fridays, it is open from 8:00 am to 11:00 am and 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Corniche You can walk all the way along the corniche from Muttrah to Old Muscat. It is home to the must see places in Muscat and is a nice place to hang out. Muttrah Souq This can be a fun-filled experience as you could through the small alleys in the souq where you could find the best of the things ranging from souvenirs to jewellery to clothing and many more. It still has the great souq atmosphere and the smell of frankincense adds to the experience. It’s open in the morning and evening. Qurum beach Shatti Al Qurum Beach is in a convenient location if you want to take a dip and it looks lovely. Even if you don’t care to go to the beach itself, you can always pack up some snacks and take that one book you have been longing to read since forever.

You can spend time with family, friends and even if you are alone. There are small huts with shades which one can occupy if it’s a big group.

First stop for Lands of Merchants journey Oman was chosen as the first stop for the upcoming Lands of Merchants and Maharajas journey by TCS World Travel, based in Seattle in the United States of America (USA). This was revealed by Tim Ryan, Director of Product Development at the TCS World Travel, in a report published by AFAR website. Frankincense was a valuable commodity along ancient trade routes, coveted by merchants. Much of the finest incense, perfume and oil created from the resin come from Oman. The report added: “A stable and welcoming country, Oman promises visual and cultural delights. Perhaps because its non-glitzy capital, Muscat, offers an appealing contrast to the capitals of some of its booming neighbours — Oman is now starting to show up on the tourism radar. That’s good news for visitors — it is still possible to experience the leisurely. Omani lifestyle.” Having recently scouted Oman, Ryan saw for himself how this sparsely populated nation enjoys a diverse and rich landscape, which may surprise those who think of it as a desert kingdom. With coconut palms swaying along Salalah’s beach resorts in the far southwest, you could easily imagine you were in the Caribbean. But just inland, the great Empty Quarter desert begins. This is the Unesco’s world heritage-designated Land of Frankincense, where the country’s Boswellia sacra trees are tapped for their resin. At Oman’s far northern Strait of Hormuz tip, the Musandam Peninsula with rugged peaks and countless islets draw whale and dolphin watchers. For an authentic experience in Muscat, Ryan recommends the busy and historic Muttrah Souq where you can pick up your frankincense, or purchase a curved silver khanjar (dagger). Its harbour-front location is a reminder that this crossroads nation has absorbed cultural influences from Africa, India and Persia. Don’t miss a visit to the Grand Mosque — one of few in the Middle East open to non-Muslims — for its stunning golden dome and decorative tile mosaics. It might come as a surprise to discover that a gleaming-white structure built a few years ago is the world-class Royal Opera House Muscat. The report further said from Muscat, it’s a mere tw
