Ramadan in Muscat

I'm planning to visit Muscat from 20th to 27th July with my 5 year old son. Are there any interesting activities for him to do and could I use Barr Al Jissah's pool for a day?

I find Muscat VERY restrictive in Ramadan as a non-fasting expat!!! I dont think you can use the Shangri La pool facilities as a day visitor, you will need to check. It's also very very hot and humid here right now.

Ramadan here is not like Dubai......bars are closed ALL month and very few places open for coffee/lunch during the day. Some hotels may have a screened off area for people who arent fasting.

Thanks for your reply. Guess I'd have to look at another destination then!
