"Clouds and Blue Skies" Rustaq Favorite Tip by Geoff_Wright

  The magnificent Jabal Sham
by Geoff_Wright

Favorite thing: Rustaq meaning 'Market Town', served as the Omani capital for around 150 years. It is still a major administrative centre, with a population of about 60,000 in and around the city.

Fondest memory: Rustaq to me was the entry point into the interior. The road from the coast to Rustaq was only a graded track, but quite a good surface, and reasonably fast. Today Rustaq is served by a dual carriageway, roundabouts and traffic lights!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
