do anybody know if there are good conections between the airport and the hotels in the south of Muscat (80 km away from the airport).
There is very little public transport at all. Which hotel are you heading for? It may offer a shuttle service, otherwise you'll probably have to get at taxi. There is a taxi stand just outside arrivals with fixed prices for journeys - it's more expensive than taxis on the street, but reliable and you know exactly how much it will be.
If you want to bargain and you don't have too much luggage, you can walk up onto the main road, where you'll find loads of taxis who you might be able to strike a good price with, but they see tourists at the airport as easy game unless you know what the price should be!
If you are going via bus then it can booked in booking,com. But taxi is much comfortable as weather is not going to welcome you specially in bus.
thanks for your answers. I decided to rent a car during all my holiday time.
I red that the government forced to close guesthouses. Do you know if this is true or if it is still posible to rent rooms in guesthouses.
