I am planning to go to Nizwa from Muscat in the end of Dec. and since I will be taking public transport,I wonder if there is any hotel/guest house in the town where I can have easy access to the fort and the souq, or close to the place where the bus will drop me off. Also, from Nizwa, I would like to visit nearby places such as Bahla, and Jabrin. Does anyone know how much will an engaged taxi cost , if there is no public transportation available?
A separate question : does the fort in Nizwa close on Fridays?
Thanks in advance.
