Although Dubai has taken the modern path, its neighbour, Oman, has made a vow to remain traditional. Once a powerful empire stretching all the way down to Zanzibar, Oman’s past is reflected in its architecture, cuisine, lifestyle and the warm smiles of its people. The Sultanate of Oman is one of the best places in the Gulf to experience traditional Arabia.
Apart from being a great cultural travel destination, Oman is being blessed with spectacular mountainous landscapes, dramatic canyons, green wadis, fjords, red dunes, roses, frankincense trees and the turquoise Indian Ocean. One will find enough places to hide from the heat, like Wadi Shab, Wadi Tiwi and numerous other wadis, and enough places to develop a wonderful connection with nature, like Dhofar, Ras al Jinz and Jebel Akhdar. After the first trip, a wish to come back will start growing, we promise!
The great thing is that one can do quite a lot in Oman even during one week, from gazing the stars in the desert, jumping in pristine mountain lakes in the wadis and hiking to diving, fishing, watching the turtles laying eggs and spotting the dolphins in Musandam. Adventure is in the air! No matter what your interest is, give us a call for advice. Oman is wonderful and we want you to also find out for yourself, the way we did. Dare to explore places which haven’t made the headlines yet, but maybe that’s the main reason why they remain authentic and charming, like the travel jewels of Oman.
