My partner and I were thinking of visiting Oman in March - as I am going to be in the UAE for work and thought I'd combine it with a holiday somewhere interesting (I've been to Dubai etc before and am not a big fan!)
Is Oman suitable for a weeks' backpacker/Lonely Planet-esque travelling (ie getting around by public transport, getting budget accomodation as and when..)
The worry I had was that there seems to be very little in the way of budget accomodation options (ie it seems all Five-star hotels and resorts...). Am I right?
Other than that what are other general costs like eg eating out, transport, activities etc.
