Oman is a small country off the Arabian Peninsula in the Middle East. Traditionally closed off to visitors and tourism, recent changes in government and improved travel options have opened Oman up to the world. Tourism has grown considerably and is fast becoming a major source of income for the nation.
Oman has one of the most diverse and multicultural environments in the Middle East, with a plethora of tourist attractions. It has become particularly well known for its fascinating culture and was voted as the Second Best City to visit in 2012.
A single entry visa is issued at point of entry, and is valid for one month.
Oman has a wealth of fantastic beaches, activities and beautiful landmarks that are attracting more and more visitors every year. The people of Oman are very friendly and welcoming, and always on hand to chip in with advice or directions.
The popular Al Sawadi Beach Resort is one of the largest, offering snorkelling, speedboat rides, fishing trips and dives. There are also temperature-controlled Jacuzzis and pools at the resort for that added touch of luxury.
For more fast-paced action, head to the Intercon beach, opposite the Intercontinental Hotel. This offers a wide range of beachside bars and restaurants, serving traditional Eastern cuisine and cocktails. Also popular with families, joggers and water sport enthusiasts, here you can hire fishing boats, go on diving and snorkelling trips and also frequent the many beach BBQs cooking freshly caught fish. White Beach is particularly popular for night sea fishing and overnight camping.
Due to the regular breeze coming from the sea, Oman is particularly well known for world-class kite surfing facilities, which are readily available on the beaches and provide a fantastic thrilling experience for adventure seekers.
Oman is home to several species of turtles and fish that swim from the Indian Ocean. Regular turtle watching trips are readily available, as well as organised fishing boat trips into the coastal shallows. Oman is fast becoming world-renown for its bird watching; with almost 500 species from Europe, Asia and Africa settling on the island -- including the famed Golden Eagle and the mysterious Birds Of Paradise -- it makes for a colourful, fascinating experience we highly recommend.
One of the most popular activities in Oman is the overnight Desert Safari. Traditionally using camels and four-wheel jeeps, the golden dunes of the desert stretching before you make for a breath-taking sight. At night you can camp underneath the crystal clear skies, view the stars through telescopes and enjoy a traditional Omani BBQ. You also have the chance to visit traditional Arabic Bedouins who live in the desert and listen to some fascinating local folklore and tales.
Oman’s coast is lined with connecting caves of varying complexities. The most famous cave in Oman is Al-Hoota, located at the foot of Jebel Sharms and which features one of the most complex cave systems in the world. Al Hotah cavern near Al Hamra features an underground lake that is unique to Oman and is not to be missed.
As well as fantastic trekking options through the Omani landscape, the vast heritage sites, featuring ancient tombs and settlements, are an absolute must see. Bat Tombs at Al Khatum are part of the World Heritage list and also the site of an ancient settlement, with graves and tombs dating from the third century.
The Louban Route in Dofar also contributes to the fascinating cultural history of Oman. The site of three ancient communities, a frankincense orchard over the ages still exists.

Protection from the hot, desert sun is the name of the game when packing for Oman. Make sure you have sun cream of a high factor in abundance as well as caps, collared shirts and sunglasses.
When you are planning clothing you need to remember that anything tight and heavy will only lead to discomfort. Take a break from wearing jeans and think about packing loose fitting khaki trousers or shorts along with linen or cotton t shirts. Remember Oman will be the perfect place to wear those beautiful lightweight dresses that just give no protection from chilly Britain.
Swimming gear is obviously a must for the pool, but additionally the delightfully warm waters of the Omani coast are not to be missed so make sure you do not forget it.
Although, remember when packing the swimming trunks and bikini that you should also pack some more conservative clothes so that you can respect the local values when you visit the fantastic historical and religious sites that Oman has to offer.
Due to its location on the edge of the Arabian Peninsula, Oman is a country with a hot, desert climate. This means there is very little rainfall and that temperatures can easily reach above 40°C on any single day at the height of summer (June to September).
Other than summer the temperature can be relatively pleasant with an average of around 30°C in the months proceeding and following summer. Additionally the winter is much cooler with average temperatures of around 25°C though it is still obviously very dry.
It is worth noting that not all of Oman is dry, the Dhofar region which borders Yemen to the South-West receives a substantial amount of rainfall from the remnants of monsoons blowing off the Indian Ocean.
Watch out for sandstorms between the months of March and August caused by the Shamal, a warm dusty wind that can sometimes blow with terrific force.
The duration of your stay is more than 60 days, but don't worry that's fine. We just want to make sure you get the best possible price.
