Oman

Champagne coloured beaches, sprawling acres of greenery and desert ripples take pride of place making holidays to Oman a glamorous Arabian destination. You’ll find yourself in another world altogether.

Oman is immensely proud of its rich Arabian culture and history, with one of the oldest civilisations in the region, dating back over five thousand years. There are many luxury resorts set on fabulous beaches and watersports are understandably popular, including some excellent dive sites.

The mountain villages and their terrace farming have remained unchanged for centuries.

Visit the capital Muscat with its colourful mix of old and new and must do highlights include standing on the waterfront and watching the animated scenes in the ancient Fish Market, or bargaining in the Muttrah Souq for Bedouin rugs, gold and frankincense.

The most surprising thing about Oman, with all that it has to offer, is the way it is so often overlooked by holidaymakers. One more reason for you to go!
