New: Gatherings and events in Oman


Would you like to have a coffee, organize a dinner or find people for activities in Oman?

To help you meet people and find outings in Oman, we launched a Gatherings and Events section in Oman: you can now follow what’s going on in your area and make the most of your time off.

You can also create events and organize a gathering with the members.

How to create a gathering?

On the Events in Oman page, click on “Post an event”.
Fill in the form with the details related to the gathering: date, place, hour… and post your event.

It’s now time to invite the other members! You can opt for a public event or a private one (Invitation or Invitation plus).

To send invites, click on “Invite friends” on your event page and select who you wish to invite.

Get informed of who is coming through this page and get in touch with the other members or add pictures of the events in the comments.

A photo album dedicated to the event will then be created.

What do you think of this new feature?

Who will be the first host?!

Ho how are you i like to gathers group of people from different cultures

This is fantastic Julien, it would save my time posting in the forum. For everybody's info the group we initiated in 2013 has grown and with regular members who participates, but 90% of those who showed interest didn't show up not even once. I would reconsider posting our activities again but we want serious joiners/participants only.

I would appreciate if in future whenever a meets happens if you can notify me or post on same thread, i would definitely try to come.


I like to meet more people and good time together

Hey Guys,

I just came from India, so no plans of going there during Eid holidays. If anyone is planning for a group meetup/hiking/trekking, please inform me too.


We are organizing a meet up on Thursday night at AL Makhan Cafe Beach Road 8pm. Agenda is Eid holidays trip, this is your opportunity to meet other expats and once we meet you personally we will add you in the WhatsApp group.

I will join you on thursday. And introduce myself

Taal Tariq! It's Eid holiday.....

My search for Al Makan leads to two results: one is in/near Muscat Grand Mall and another near Royal Opera House.

Which one is our meeting point?

Sorry I am new here, couldn't find a beach road.

The one in beach road, near opera house, it's the road going to crowne plaza.
See you there!

Thanks hexebella. See you there.


My wife and I would like to come to this.  Is there a special ex-pat section of the cafe (i.e. is there an obvious way to realize who you are), or should we just ask people if they are expats :)?

Probably, once I reach there I will look for people who look as lost as I am.  :)

Alright. I am already here. Sitting outside, next to the big screen. Easy to find.

Sorry guys had no chance to look in here during the day, I'm here now and seating in the open area of AL make an,  happy kappyou came, fantastic

Correction. ..seated
