Ibra is the gateway to Wahiba Sands, the premiere destination for dune bashing tourists and local bedu people alike. The sense of isolation coupled with desolation and combined with ruins of another time plus giant copper red dunes of sand equates to an outpost where you wouldn't be surprised to stumble upon Lawerence of Arabia, or at least a latter ...

It's a good thing love is blind because if it wasn't, Muscat wouldn't be so in love with itself. The capital city does, like any place, have its charms, however.

Ruwi is excellent if you desire cheap clothes, watches or sunglasses with a familiar name at reduced prices, if not I wouldn't bother going.

I went there to see the fort only to be able to see its outer walls. I don't think it is ever open. Luckily I hadn't driven very far to get to Rushtaq.
