I'm flying into and out of Abu Dhabi. I have 5 days and would like to see Oman. I've never been to Dubai either, so my thought was to go north and take the coastal highway to Khasab.
While I certainly wish I had more time to explore Oman, any advice, suggestions, or alternate routes?
I'd like to get out of the cities.
That's kind of a tough route in terms of avoiding cities, but you might want to stop by Ghalilah. It's known more for it's rock climbing than anything but if you're into that it's interesting.

(One simple route from Dubai, to boarder, then it's right away coastal route to get to Khassab)
