Muscat, Oman 🇴🇲 .
Muscat became the capital of Oman in 1793, and the focus of the country's great seafaring empire of the 18th and 19th centuries. Having been party to the control of much of the coast of East Africa, its 20th-century descent into international oblivion, under Sultan Said Bin Taimur, was all the more poignant.
Omani cuisine revolves around rice. The morning meal is not significant, often consisting of bread or leftovers from the day before, and tea. The main meal of the day is in early to mid-afternoon. It is generally a large dish of rice with a thin sauce often based on tomato or tomato paste and meat or fish.
No Coca-Cola. There are almost NO Coca-Cola Company products while Pepsi is widely sold. ...

Uncut currency sheets are common numismatics collector's items. They are often sold as souvenirs by issuers. After cutting, usually the banknotes can be used as legal tender; however, the cost to purchase uncut currency sheets is typically higher than the aggregate face value of the cut notes.
#bimmah_sinkhole It was formed due to the dissolution of the lower layers of limestones that caused the surface layer to collapse creating this big hole. It is famous for its crystal turquoise waters as well as the rocky formations that surrounds it. This amazingly beautiful sinkhole is a must-visit attraction in Oman.
هي عبارة عن حفرة إذابة تكونت بسبب إذابة الطبقات السفلية للصخور الجيرية مكونة كهف وبعد ذلك سقط سقف هذا الكهف لتشكل حفرة كبيرة. تتميز الحفرة بمياه فيروزية اللون وكذاك بالصخور الجيرية المحيطة بها. سميت هوية النجم بهذا الاسم لأن الناس قديمًا اعتقدوا بانها تكونت عن طريق سقوط نيزك وتشكلت هذه الحفرة ولكن في الواقع هي حفرة إذابة. وكذلك يعتبر منتزه هوية النجم من أماكن الجذب السياحي المعروفة في السلطنة.

3 TOP TIPS FOR IPHONE INSTA-PHOTOS 📸
Not everyone wants to invest in a DSLR for their travels and that totally makes sense. If this wasn’t a passion of mine, I probably wouldn’t be lugging around the extra gear! 😅 If you’re travelling with your trusty iPhone here's some simple things to keep in mind:
1) It’s all bout dat composition 😝 If you haven’t heard of the rule of thirds, it’s the grid that appears on your iPhone whenever you take a photo. This helps you keep the image straight, but more importantly it directs you to where the subject of your photo should be (at least for traditional composition, which 99% of my photos are). The eye will naturally be drawn to where these lines intersect. For example, above I made sure the the mosque arches aligned with the ‘intersecting’ lines and my silhouette is smack bam in the middle of them. This draws the viewers eyes to the elements of the photo I wanted to pop. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) iPhone editing is your friend... but keep it simple. I use the free apps @photoshop and @lightroom . Other then for heavy duty edits, I edit on my phone - it saves so much time. I generally like my photos to be warm, light hue on blues, dehazed and slightly overexposed (which are all simple buttons on these apps). Some no-no’s I used to fall into were over saturating my images to make it colourful (vibrance and dehaze are much better for this) and too much contrast or highlights (keep in mind people don’t always have their phones on full brightness so your photo may appear way darker on their screen, I try and make mine as bright as possible without losing detail). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) Finally, strategic crop your shots. Instagrams current layout favours Portrait Dimension (tall skinny images). You can of course still have a great landscape photo on Instagram but because of the platform, it will make the image smaller on everyones screen. The more of the screen you take up on someone’s phone, the more likely they are to see it when scrolling! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Bonus tip: Never use zoom on an iPhone, it will decrease the quality of your image - crop your image after to zoom in the subject instead 😄
When it comes to @wmuscat indubitably everything is exceptional be it their Omani contemporary decor or their lavish cream crowd lounge or pool parties. And then when it comes to food W Hotel leaves you flabbergasted yet again with their exemplary culinary skills. Oh! Man. 🤩
That said, my recent visit to their seasonal multi-cuisine restaurant Harvest was an absolute delight. They have an entire room dedicated to the desserts and it’s literally a room full of sweet dreams! It sure will be the highlight of your visit here, trust me.
Main course had quite a lot of varieties though I have to mention their salads section was one of the best I’ve had so far. The zesty flavors were right on point and my absolute favorites were the Eggplant-Tahini salad and the Zucchini Falafel salad. I absolutely od ‘d on them. It sure is an experience not to be missed.
P.S Don’t forget to watch my story highlights for the same!
