Great experience in Muscat

We spent a great two weeks in Muscat over the Chritmas of the year 2015 to the new year old 2017. spent 2 weeks in Oman over Xmas 2012 - New Year 2013. Muscat is one of the most unique cities. There are beautiful oases, ancient fotresses and great sandy beaches, extreme mountain scenery and friendly people. We had booked our ticket via Qatar airlines on our way there, On return we used Emirates for the ticket. The city of Muscat was full of beautiful women none of us wanted t leave. We regretted getting our ticket by Emirates on our way back as Qatar airlines had given us much better service.
