After spending 4 weeks in Yemen in January 2008, I finished my trip with one week in Oman.   The differences between the two countries could not be more striking!   Oman is modern, clean and safe – quite the contrast to its south-western neighbour.

To be honest, I was pretty exhausted after Yemen, so unfortunately I didn’t get out an explore Oman as much as I would have liked.  Hung out in Muscat and did a 4 day quick tour Muscat-Ras Al Jinz-Wahiba-Nizwa-Jabel Shams-Muscat.
