A Gentleman's Guide to Muscat

Muscat

1.  Getting Around in Muscat

Muscat sprawls along the coastline and is connected by the Muscat Expressway and various arterial roads. Though there are city buses that ply the main routes, the best way to get around the city is by cab. One can download the Marhaba and Otaxi apps to get the best deals on cabs, and travel around the city in ease and comfort. The drivers can converse in basic English and are very friendly and amiable. Walking around is impractical due to the distances, but many tourists hire bicycles and cruise along the beachfront.
