But don't forget your:

Sun screen, mosquito spray, high quality sunglasses. - Aug 28, 2017
Camera, sense of humor, sense of adventure, and outdoor equipment. - Oct 25, 2014
VPN, sunscreen, SCUBA gear. - Jun 7, 2012
suncreen. - May 3, 2012
Consumable shipments..... - Aug 25, 2011
BBQ grill - Feb 20, 2011
Sense of adventure, patience, sunscreen, dive equipment, camping gear as what is here is expensive and not on par for what you can get stateside for the same cost. - Feb 12, 2010
Rugged outdoors clothing. Even if you're not an outdoorsman (as I am not), the hiking, camping, beach-going temptations are irresistible. Bring a high-quality digital camera -- like I said, every corner of Oman is an award-winning National Geographic snapshot. - Jan 21, 2010
Sunscreen, skin lotions, drier sheets, Oxiclean powder (lots -- dust gets ground into everything!), shoes (ladies with small feet will enjoy shoe/sandal shopping here) - Mar 19, 2009
Attractive, loose, cotton clothes (much is available, but not necessarily in Western taste - think bright colors and odd combinations); books, music, and DVDs (available, but expensive, and limited by local culture). - Feb 18, 2008
