No matter who is the only car I’ve seen all day, no matter that there are 2,700 kilometers of empty beaches, no matter what the mountains are just the parts that wolves and hedgehogs only bend at night, and never mind that memories of Thesiger are the evocations of life only to issue from the dunes of the Empty Quarter-the one car per day and find his next camp.
What makes this particular observation today is that a relatively short time that a network of highways and roads gradual, as the road from the coast of Shwaymiyah filim, track or mountain adventure in the ancient tombs in Gaylah, has possible to enter Oman’s unspoiled and most visited loved. Muscat has been a hub port for many years, and today is the culmination of everything from products to cruise ships. In the Sharqiya region you will discover some of the main attractions of Oman, as well as the beautiful beaches of South implantation sites of turtles in Ras Al-Jinz and dunes of the Sharqiya desert (Wahiba) Sands.
Those who are bold enough to get off the beaten track will find that the desert can be very easily themselves without mounting a major expedition. Now that the secret to a great unspoiled beauty of Oman, however, probably will not be long before that group visits are a common sight and no longer necessary to seek the company of strangers, at the end of the exploration of a days.
Meanwhile, what would you tell people happy camper parks in ‘their space’? Like all Omani hospital will match on your travels will tell you, there is only one answer: “Ahlan wa salan Welcome! ‘

Travel Ideal Road Trip
When a popular holiday destination on par with neighboring Morocco, Algeria, the tourism industry all but disappeared when the bitter civil war break out in 1992. After a decade of conflict, the situation improved a little, and some access to the south of the Sahara has been possible in the last couple of years. However, traveling independently, without a car is almost nonexistent, and after the kidnapping of 2003 without driver tourism travelers should be aware of the risks involved.
This shortage of visitors is a real shame because Algeria is one of the most fascinating countries of North Africa. In the dramatic classified by UNESCO n’Ajjer Tassili and Hoggar regions, near the town of Tamanrasset, the tribal culture is very much alive, and the day to day problems common to many Arab countries absent. Algiers, contains a live mix of tradition and modernity, its colonial past remains present. Timimoun city embodies the storybook oasis of the Sahara, and the cozy town of In Salah, is divided in two by a sand dune reptile.
The options for travel are limited, especially as a backpacker, but the opportunity to see even a part of this vast nation is not to be missed.
