UAE announces New Bus Route to Musandam for only DH50
As winter approaches, tourists from the UAE will have a new window of opportunity to visit the beautiful Musandam region. Musandam will be more accessible to visitors and explorers beginning on October 6, 2023, when a completely new international bus route opens between Musandam and Ras Al Khaimah.
The Ras Al Khaimah Transport Authority (RAKTA) has announced that it would launch its first international public bus service to the Governorate of Musandam in Oman. This program provides a wealth of opportunities for vacationers interested in experiencing the great outdoors.
Bus Route Details
The bus route will commence at Ras Al Khaimah's main bus station and extend to the Wilayat of Khasab in Musandam. Travelers can embark on this journey twice a day, with buses departing at 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The total travel time for this approximately 3-hour journey promises travelers a comfortable and convenient experience.
One of the most appealing aspects of this new bus route is its affordability. A one-way ticket for the journey costs just Dh50. Travelers can conveniently book their tickets through various channels, including the official website of RAKTA, the RAKBUS application, on the bus itself, or at the bus station. This budget-friendly fare makes Musandam easily accessible to a wider range of travelers.
Collaboration for Connectivity
The agreement for this international bus service was officially signed between RAKTA and the Municipality of Musandam on August 30, 2023. This collaborative effort aims to enhance connectivity between the two regions, promote tourism, and provide a seamless travel experience for visitors.
As the bus route opens, travelers can look forward to exploring Musandam's stunning fjords, clear blue waters, and rugged mountains. This development not only enriches the travel options available to UAE residents and tourists but also strengthens the ties between neighboring regions, fostering greater cultural and economic exchanges.
For those eager to embark on a memorable journey through the enchanting landscapes of Musandam, the launch of this international bus route brings new opportunities for adventure and discovery.
