Hi. I'll be staying in Muscat (Muttrah) in November for 3 days and on day 2, I'm going to take the bus to Nizwa for the day. I've read these busses can get booked up quickly, but can't find any way of booking a ticket in advance online. Is it possible / how do I book a ticket?

Also, once I'm in Nizwa, apart from the fort and souq what is there to do and see - and how easy is it to visit the surrounding villages / forts? Can anyone recomment how to do this please? By bus? Or are taxis cheap? And is there anywhere in particular I should visit? (I'll probably only have about 5 or 6 hours to visit somewhere just outside of Nizwa.)

I really appreciate any advice. Thanks.
