Oman is a forward thinking and progressive country situated on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It is made up primarily of desert and mountains and offers untouched beauty in its landscapes. Unlike its neighbour, UAE, it is made up of very few high rise buildings and in turn, reflects the traditional character of the country on an Oman vacation.

The capital, Muscat, is essentially a port with many cruise ships making a stop here. It has much charm and history which can be seen on Oman tours by visiting two of the major forts, the imposing Al-Jalali and Al Mirani Forts and the Sultan’s Palace with its blue and gold mushroom shaped pillars.

Also worth a visit while travelling to Oman is the Sultan Qaboos Mosque, the third largest in the world. Strolling down the attractive Corniche which runs along the sea, you will find many shops and restaurants.


 

Close to Muscat, in the Sharqiya Region are the beautiful beaches at Sur and the turtle nesting sites in Ras al-Jinz. Nizwa, a palm oasis, was the capital in the 6th and 7th Centuries and is located on a plain surrounded by the highest mountains in Oman, the Hajar Mountains. Here you will find a magnificent 17th Century fort.

Sharqiya Sands is the place to experience the desert dunes and to see the camel races in the winter.

Sohar is the prettiest and best kept towns in the country with safe, clean beaches. It is also reportedly associated with the fictional voyageur, Sinbad the Sailor. The Sohar Castle dates back to the 13th Century. One more fort which is situated high up in the mountains is the splendid Nakhal Fort, one of the most outstanding in the whole of the Middle East.

So why not book one of our Oman tours and experience a very different destination.
