Has anyone moved to Oman (but not Muscat)? There might be the opportunity to move there but would like some opinions.

My db is just leaving after three years, but was posted there with HM Forces. He enjoyed it, but the culture could be a bit hard to get your head around.

Oman is lovely! The people are very friendly and it is pretty safe. We live about 3 hours from Muscat towards the 'top' of the country.

Where in Oman is the job based? Where would you be living? Will it be family status or single?

The culture of Oman is not hard to get your head around. It's not Saudi!

Pika Db found it hard to get his head around the way some of the Omanis treated house staff. Professionally, he found some of the culture far removed from what would be accepted elsewhere as well.

Where is the job? Life as an expat can vary hugely here (friend hated her lecturing post away from Muscat). I suspect it's easier as an expat in Muscat than some other parts (opera house, lots of interesting events, very mixed population) but it will depend on what you enjoy and want out of it.
