Of all the countries in the Gulf the warmest welcome that tourists traveling to this region receive is unquestionably that of the Omani people.
With its renowned Arabian hospitality and the eminence of its past, Oman welcomes tourists and visitors to an extremely fascinating land filled with mountains, vast flat plains rolling deserts and a varied coastline dotted with remote villages and centuries old forts.
An ideal destination for guaranteed winter sunshine, Oman offers an incredible array of itineraries and excursions.
Muscat, the Capital, is the perfect base from which to enjoy the spectacular coastline, boasting beautiful white sand beaches, turquoise waters and excellent diving. From here the imposing rugged interior mountain ranges, Al Hajar and Al Jabal al Akhdar, can be easily explored.
One of Muscat major attractions is the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque with its towering minarets, a shining white marble courtyard, stunning Swarosky chandeliers and surrounded by gardens, beautifully landscaped in traditional Islamic style.
Other must see locations include the Round Fort of Nizwa, the historic town of Bahla, Jabrin (the finest of Omans many castles), the red and white dunes of Wahiba Sands, the pretty mountain villages of Wadi Bani Khalid, the Ra's al Hadd beach at the eastern extremity of the Arabian peninsula where tourists can observe the nesting habits of green turtles coming in from the sea.
For the more adventuresome the possibility of camping in the mountains at an altitude of 2500m and the temperatures of 25C in the daytime, with lots of things to do up there including hiking in the Wadi Nakhr Gorge, Oman's Grand Canyon.
With the khareef winds setting in at the first of June and continuing through September another fascinating spot not to be missed is Salalah which turns into a garden from the rain and mist that soak the southern region for three months. In August the famous Khareef Festival takes place with lots of pageants and cultural activities.
So enjoy Oman's hospitality, its succulent international and local dishes.
