Oman: Escape to the Nature’s Most Precious Gift

A pristine coastline, exciting sand dunes, luxury hotels and the winter sun – these are some of the key elements of a holiday in Oman, a beautiful nation on the south-eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. Loved for its fine blend of the ancient and the modern reflected through the architecture, the unique culture and the natural beauty, this country must be included in your list of favourite places to explore in the Middle East!

Think beach and adventure tours, think Oman! Clear blue skies, crystal clear waters and the golden sands of the famous beaches such as Al Qurum Beach, Bandar Jissah and Musandam appeal to the nature lovers and call adventure enthusiasts to indulge in some exciting adventures such as dolphin-watching, diving, snorkelling and some of the world’s best fishing.

Cities like Muscat, Khasab and Salalah are a delight to explore and to revel in the actual desert life whereas some pre-Islamic Frankincense ports, Arabian forts and souks, and modern masterpieces such as the Grand Mosque and the Muscat Opera House are some delightful spots to witness the true Arabian culture. The tallest peak of the country, Al Hajar Mountain Range and the Wadi Nakhr Gorge, with their incredible appearance, present the best of the nature and thrill.
