Oman is a country that epitomises the Middle East. Since Oman was closed to most of the outside world, its culture remained largely untouched. The country has amazing forts, palm covered mountains, beautiful beaches and unending deserts of the ‘Empty Quarter. Situated in the south-eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, it is one of the most beautiful countries in the region.
With one of the most diverse landscapes imaginable, Oman has the highest mountains of the middle-east in Jebel Shams in Al Hajar on the one hand, and the endless expanse of Wahiba sands on the other. Scattered across the eastern coastline are a plethora of pristine beaches starting from the Northern port city of Sohar in the Gulf of Oman to Salalah in the south. Snorkelling, scuba diving, camping, and watching marine life are some of the activities to choose from. If luxury is your thing there’s always glamping.
Oman offers a lot to see such as mosques, forts, castles, geological formations, not to mention adventures of hiking, snorkelling, and diving. Wadi Ghul is Oman’s Grand Canyon and Salalah offers beaches with world class resorts. The Ad Dhakhiya region close to Muscat has UNESCO World Heritage Forts and well-preserved palaces. The Hajar mountains, covered in rose and date plantations, with ancient and abandoned villages are waiting to be explored. Turtle viewing is an excellent way to end the day. Ras Al Jinz Reserve is home to tens of thousands of the endangered green turtles.
