Musandam is the northern exclave of Oman, divided from the relax of the nation by the UAE.  Khasab, is the capital of the Musandam Peninsula.  The city looks over the Arabian Beach.  Khasab is house to around 18,000 individuals. The place was working as a port during the early Colonial period of the seventeenth century. I was grabbed for my trip, from Sharjah, to an exclusive place Musandam Khasab.  The generate was only 160 km (100 miles) but it took about  two and a half hours.  There was a bit of visitors on the roads but the greatest crowd as seen at the boundary.  My United States ticket certified me to get an Omani visa on appearance,  but it took over 40 minutes crossing the boundary each way.

One of the features of the day was a dolphin viewing.  I have not done that since I was a kid in Florida.  It was a wonderful day and an awesome beauty of Musandam Khasab made me realized that how beautiful this land is but unfortunately very few know about it. I took several pictures of the playing dolphins for my kids with the hope that they will like it.

For some traditional purpose, Oman is territorially divided up in three places.  Musandam, which is where we went, is on the tip of the Arabian peninsula, right above UAE. And then there is a small area from the sultanate, right in UAE.  The generate from Dubai to Amazing Musandam Dibba required our two and half hour drive on the smooth desert of the UAE. The boundary crossing was very easy. We did not face any such problem.  I can recommend you that you must try Musandam Dibba journey, they are not that tight with the migrants law for you and you really have a bundle of pleasure.
