Oman in a Nutshell
If Oman wasn’t on your plans, think again. This often overlooked Middle Eastern country isn’t flashing up on travel agencies’ ads but if you’re looking to safely indulge in the traditional Arabian essence and explore a world of stunning natural beauty, then Oman can definitely deliver. Step into the “One Thousand and One Nights” wonderland and hang out with locals in Muscat’s chaotic souqs, rest on the Wahiba desert Sands, contemplate an immense starry sky, dive in the Wadis’ crystal clear waters, sail in the Strait of Hormuz, dive in some of the better-preserved coral reefs in the world, discover magical towns – such as Bahla – and visit Muscat’s iconic landmark, the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque.
