Why Seeb, Oman

Seeb is a quiet fishing village just outside of Oman where you can really see, feel and experience the Omani culture. It’s also great to walk along the beach and feel the force of the ocean breeze. So next time you head to Oman, check out Seeb, Oman.

But if you like you may also stay in Muscat which has many places to stay, even a Ritz Carlton hotel which is a little way from the heart of the action of the city of Muscat which is in Muttrah, however its a great hotel and in an equally great area. There are also hotels by the airport as well as in the Muttrah area.

Where To Eat

There are plenty of local restaurants with local fare, so you will have no issues here. There are also street stalls from immigrants with their own local food. I had some food from India, but I really can’t tell you what it was called, just that it was tasty.

What To Do

Shop at the local souks, take a walk on the beach, get a haircut one of the many barber shops in the town; I don’t think I’ve been to any place that has as many barbershops as Muscat.
