There was a compliment shuttle bus
running every half an hour
from the port to the town centre
where Mutrah Souq is located.
Lovely half moon shape harbour
Around the souq
Inside the souq
After short sighting of the souq,
we were negotiating a taxi to hire for few hours.
We bumped into a nice Canadian couple
we shared a taxi with
when we were in Phuket, Thailand.
They were also looking for a taxi
so here we are again to share
a nice day together in Muscat!
Beautiful mosque that
closed just few minutes before
when we arrived by taxi.
We should have known it before!
Other unfortunate tourists
who tried to get in to the mosque.
Grand Hyatt Muscat that our taxi driver wanted us to view
Beautiful inside the hotel lobby.
Out door pool leads to a nice beach
Very modern looking piano in the lobby
Opera house is the next stop
Our taxi driver
We really wanted to come to this hotel
as there were so many people
strongly recommended to visit.
Al Bustan Ritz Carlton Hotel Muscat!
There is a ship's tour that passengers can have
high tea in this elegant hotel lobby.
Al Bustan hotel outdoor pool and beach area
We, four of us, had light lunch here in this
gorgeous setting with palm trees alongside a beach.
It was like a dream.
The palace for the president
Incence burner is the nickname for this interesting building
Party on board was just about to start when
we came back to the cruise ship.
A belly dancer looked very extotic!
