Muscat, Oman 7-9 Jan 2013

I used Oman air to Mumbai, so I could have free stopover at Muscat, capital of Oman. 
So I booked two nights at there. I will report how it was. 
Well, Oman was so rich country because of oil money. 
The city itself is so beautiful, clean and safe. It was very amazing since I haven`t expected much before departure. 
There is not many public transport, so we should use taxies many times, so it costs a lot, but except that I enjoyed staying there. 27 degree and no rain. Very nice time to visit in January.
