Unlike some of its neighbours on the Arabian Peninsula, Oman has taken great care to step into the 21st century with its culture intact and its impressive array of heritage buildings intact. A destination like no other, Oman offers an Arabian journey beyond your greatest expectations. Its diverse terrain of dry rugged mountains and breathtaking dunes, countryside of rivers, waterfalls and oases is a geographic beauty. Combine this with the 1,700kms of amazing coast line that stretches along the Arabian Sea, Gulf of Oman, the Persian Gulf, and you have at your hands some of the most stunning beaches in the world. Endowed with hundreds of historic forts, castles and restored houses, Oman is rich in history and traditions. Omani women still wear colourful costumes and men in dishdashas sport traditional curved daggers on special occasions. “Marhaba” is the traditional word for welcome and Oman is renowned for its unmatched hospitality, and genuine friendliness. Increasingly becoming an attractive destination for its great variety of activities, culture, history and mouth watering cuisine, Oman is definitely one of the Middle East’s best kept secrets!
