Travel to Oman
• Travel to Oman
Oman - an amazing country. I watched dozens of photo reports from Oman, read a lot of reviews and I always have remained a question: "What, there's really nothing there?" All photos of Oman - a desert, camels, fishermen, some small stone houses. These frames can be done in any Arab country. Why do people go to Oman? Well, there are some quite ordinary beaches, what else? The shops? In the UAE, shopping is much better and the prices are attractive.
Of course, I hoped to the last that in Oman there is something interesting, something special that I will find and show you. So, I flew to Oman, take the car, I leave the beautiful Omani highway and ... nothing. That's right nothing. The endless stone desert, the same small village and all ... If only skyscraper some beautifully constructed ...
But here is kind and good Sultan, which everyone loves. He, too, is not particularly greedy in the country raise the minimum wage to 25,000 rubles from July this year. Gasoline here costs 10 rubles per liter, and a nice apartment in a new building with the Yacht Club of 6 million rubles. Oman's capital on view - Muscat. Muscat population only 700 thousand people.
The residence of the Sultan. Sultan of Oman, by the way, one of the five richest monarchs in the world.
The main game - to feed the seagulls on the waterfront.
All come with bread and feed these flying rats.
Pier is very sad ...
If only trees planted, and then the heat is impossible to walk.
Pavilion on the waterfront.
The kids are swimming.
It is necessary to turn to the alley, if not a trace remains of the ceremonial splendor. In general, the capital looks like.
Yet there are a lot of cats. The attentive reader will find in this photo 4 cats.
The market as a market. All standard souvenirs for the Arab countries.
In Oman, just posh road. It is not clear why on the highway put such vulgar lights. Along the road everywhere lawns, flowers and trees, even though people do not go here.
The Road ... So you can go hundreds of kilometers and there will be nothing.
It appears that the money put at all ever, just along the road install such lights.
Some town. Everything is very clean, neat, but lacks soul.
Fishermen come to their boats on expensive cars (in fact, it is the buyer of fish arrived).
The sea as the sea.
There are a few good beaches, but not for the beaches to go to Oman?
Home country Mosque - Sultan Qaboos. It opened 10 years ago.
It's nice that almost all new buildings built, preserving the tradition of local architecture. You go and eye pleased. And the neighbors had built elaborate pieces of glass, like a computer game. Omanis in this regard done, respect their culture and traditions.
All clean and tidy. Everywhere flowers and lawns.
He arrived at the yacht club regatta is held here today.
Air Conditioners close decorative grilles.
Parking here is paid, payment by sms or by credit card.
In Oman are able to do the right pedestrian crossings.
See, what a beauty!
After visiting Oman impression that I still do not see it. Surely somewhere in the desert, there is something very interesting.
