Muscat to Sohar, Oman

At the Sindbad city, Sohar, hubby stopped at the Crown Plaza. I thought we were going there for lunch, but he said he has booked the hotel for us to spend another night. Oh, nasib baik I pack baju spare!

Sohar (Arabic: صحار‎) is the most developed city in Sultanate of Oman outside the capital Muscat. It is about 200 kilometers north of Muscat and about 200 kilometers south of Dubai. Sohar was an ancient capital of Oman and many believe it to be the birthplace of Sindbad the Sailor (*Excerpt from Wikipedia)

We went to the Sohar fort, Liwa castle and souq (at night, so sorry..bila malam saya and hubby dah takde mood nak ambil gambar ). Castle dia menarik and huge but hubby said castle in England lagi huge and it's nonsense punya huge.

And from what I observed, the ladies in Oman they are not strict to wear the abaya...they are very modern, sexy and lawa!!! (The nose yg mancung and with smoky eyes are all that matters) And I realized, Oman is a midway between India and Middle East...so some of the Omanis are like half Indian and half Arabic....but they have been ruled by Portugal and Turkish during a few hundred years ago..ada some yg cantik macam a mix of Portugese and Turks.
