While holidays to Oman involve sightseeing and visiting as many cultural and historical sights as you can, often the ways in which you venture between locations are as exhilarating as the destination. Hiking the Green Mountain will provide a welcome blast of fresh air, while 4x4 tours across the desert must be experienced, and a boat trip along the coast will allow you to take in Oman's beauty and tranquillity. Prepare to be overwhelmed by incredible sights and ancient tales.
Oman Food & Drink
Luxury Oman holidays are incomplete without sampling some of the divine local cuisine on offer, whether that's dining on the move or relaxing in your resort after a hard day's exploring. The country's cuisine is influenced by a variety of Asian dishes, including rich mixtures of spices, herbs, marinades and meats, and you'll find a number of dishes that vary in taste and intensity. Curry is one of the country's staple foods, but be wary if this is your first taste of a genuine dish.
While Oman is rich in historical and cultural sights and attractions, there are a staple few that you really should visit, or else run the risk of heading home before experiencing their intrigue. These include Jabrin Castle, any number of the country's traditional souq markets, the Old Castle Museum in Al-Kamil, Nakhal Fort, Muscat's Royal Opera House, and Wadi Shab, with its breathtaking pools and terraced plantations. Create your own tour, or join in with an organised excursion.
