The excellent MWASALAT (www. mwasalat.om) national bus network is often the cheapest and easiest way to get around the Oman, especially to the more remote corners, as there always seems to be a Mwasalat station nearby, even if it’s just a place the buses pull into.

Aside from Mwasalat, several other transport operators – including Moon Travel and Al-Sumri Transport – provide long distance bus services, with most specialising in Muscat – Salalah trips. City bus tours, operated by Big Bus Tours, are also available and provide daily hop-on hop-off sightseeing tours around Muscat.
