Oman

Things to do - general

It is safe to say that Oman is an Arabian gem waiting to be discovered. Stretching from the eastern edge of the Arabian Peninsula, Oman features one of the most diverse environments in the region.

The magical city of Muscat is famous for its historic port and rugged coastline, the Musandam Peninsula that juts out into the Strait of Hormuz and home to ancient fishing villages, and Salalah for its coconut fringed beaches and banana plantations. Pair this with a glorious climate and incredibly friendly people, it is a destination to behold.
