Hello I have around 6-7 nights in dubai . I am going to do a day trip to Abu Dhabi whole there but I'm all of a sudden really interested to check out oman (muscat) would 2 nights there and 5 in dubai be enough or would I be better of leaving oman as it is my first trip to Dubai? How much is it for a bus to oman ?

Thanks ryan

You would also need to get an Evisa before travelling which costs OMR20 or roughly £40

Will be good to visit Muscat. It is about 5-6 hours by road. You have to apply and obtain an online visa for Oman before going by road or air. Which time of the year? Currently it is very hot with sand storms in UAE.

July will be really hot, and likely hotter in Muscat than in Dubai. Time-wise, yes you can do both.

The temperature in Muscat will be (45-50)C

2 night will be nice to visit attractions in Muscat and outside Muscat like Nizwa City

Oh and is the dress code more strict than Dubai? Are there any beaches or pool your aloud on to wear swimming stuff or is it covered up at all times ?

#6 there are 2 options to go muscat:

1-by plane: take 1 hour.. It cost around=250$US

2-by bus:take 5-6 hours… cost=25$US

There are three daily bus trips from Dubai to Muscat: 7:30am- 15:30pm- 23:00pm

The easy way to get visa by Evisa it cost=52$US

What I know that there is common between UAE(Dubai) and Oman. When you arrive go to the customs 🛃 officer ask him.

It is a 5 hour bus journey and the buses leave from the main bus terminal.

It is a 1 hour flight and there are reasonable options

You apply for a visa for Oman on line using their online visa portal

https://evisa.rop.gov.om/

It is more strict than Dubai but you can wear swimming costumes at hotel pools and on hotel beaches

are allowed to wear swimming costumes
