Oman

When?   July 2009,  coming from Dubai
How?     Cars, boats
Who?     Travelling with Alex

  • A few days luxuriating at the Chedi in Muscat
  • The hotel is ultimate chic, infinity pools and several glitzy restaurants, one with four kitchens offering different national foods
  • The landscape is starkly brown, but awe inspiringly beautiful as it rises to the mountains forming the backdrop to the clear waters of the gulf of Oman
  • A boat trip is almost obligatory
  • The Muscat souk is small but authentic and it is fascinating to see how the country is being improved by its ruler, with Arab culture being renovated and enhanced and schools and other infrastructure developed
