Really Amazing! The Rub Al 'Khali...
Vito F
, Mar 2018
Really Amazing! The Rub Al 'Khali Desert was very peaceful and beautiful. There is also the opportunity to climb a sand dune which is about 200 meters but worth it when you get to the top and see further into the desert. The guide provided water. The guide was very friendly, knew a lot, courteous, and spoke good English. The lost city was also interesting to see as the site is not very big, but what was found looks like a fort, but could have been much bigger. Salalah is also a very nice and clean city and has good day tours from there too. The guide let me try camel meat which I thought was very tasty. The weather was very good, but hot around the March time of year. Oman is definitely a country worth visiting but also good with a group of at least a few people.
