Life in Oman is very peaceful. It is a very slow paced life where everyone lives in their own world. Plenty of restaurants to visit and cuisines to try. If you are into Sheesha there are many places to do so. Since Muscat is close by to the shore, there are many beaches to visit and relax. Abundance of sea food since fishing is a primary occupation of the locals from ages before. Eating out is not so expensive but then again it depends where you go as well.
