How to get from Dubai to Muscat by bus
Entering Oman from United Arab Emirates is very easy. We landed in Dubai and took a bus F55A (only night bus!!!) from the airport to Satwa Station, located in Dubai. Then from Satwa bus station we took a taxi, which is quite cheap, because we had no idea how to get to the Caravan Restaurant, which is a start point for a bus going to Muscat. Asking people on the bus station or reading info on internet is really not enough. Each info says a different thing. So here you find most updated info from October 2016. 😉

Traveling from Dubai to Muscat by bus
The bus to Muscat, Oman from Dubai (Caravan Restaurant) leaves at 7.30 am. and it takes around 8 hours to get there. Some people say that the trip takes 4-6 h but it depends how long you stop at the border. You can buy a bus ticket before the trip, most of the bus was empty. The ticket costs 55 dirham (12 EURO). At the border they check all your luggage also with trained dogs. After filling some papers you actually free to enter the country, tourists have no problems on the boarder. The bus arrives to Ruwi Bus station in Muscat. There are some hotels around the station for 80 euro per night. We were looking for a cheap one that’s why we drove to Mutrah hotel (for 5 Euro from the Ruwi station). The taxis in Muscat are cheap but remember always agree the price before the trip. It was much cheaper to book the hotel via internet. Even when we said that it’s better for them to give us a room directly they did not want to agree. So we just booked the room in from of them by agoda. 🙂 Finally we reached Oman, we were so enthusiastic about this country, not knowing yet anything about traveling around.
