Oman

With jagged mountain landscapes, rolling sand dunes, more than 2,000km of unspoilt coastline and pockets of tropical oases, a holiday to the picturesque sultanate of Oman is sprinkled with shimmering jewels.

A nation of spectacular natural marvels, Oman is resplendent with diverse landscapes, from the towering dunes of Wahiba Sands in the north, to the lush tropical scenery of Salalah in the south. Together with beautiful and quiet beaches tracing a sizeable coastline, Oman is a photographer’s haven.

Explore further and historic cities, grand architecture, excellent diving opportunities and even the mountainous Musandam Peninsula separated from the mainland will make this a Middle East holiday to savour.

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.

  • Capital – The port city of Muscat is the capital of Oman. This city has around 1.2 million inhabitants and boasts a history that stretches back to the 6th century BC.
  • Currency – the rial which bears the code OMR. A single rial is divided into 1000 baisas.
  • Language – the official language is Omani Arabic.
  • Time Zone – GMT+4.

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.
