I had the opportunity to visit Oman driving around with a friend, and basically we followed our instinct. This is the solution I recommend to everyone heading to this destination. Avoid staying in large resorts around Muscat, the capital, and visiting only a small area through organised tours. It’s much better if you rent a car, you buy a map and you drive around. Don’t be scared of getting lost: Omani people, with their kindness, will always help you to find your way.
