"A raid to Sur!!" Sur by Djinn76

Sur Travel Guide: 33 reviews and 84 photos

The least we can say is that it is not so obvious to reach this city... From Muscat there are two main roads, the "coastal road" and another longer one going through the innerland!
The first one is shorter, about 200km but the second one is faster even if it is about 400km!!
The reason is that, even if they are currently building a nice highway (badly damaged in July due to some kind of typhoon), you'll definitely need a 4*4 car, most of the way is indeed just a trail...

More details (in French) and pictures are available HERE!

...I haven't really had the time to do lots of sightseeing but apparently the city is known for its traditional boats!

Liquefied natural gas and construction yards is what is currently attracting people in the area...
