Oman

Oman

Compared to its close, and more developed Arabian neighbours, Oman has retained its cultural heritage and with the absence of mass tourism has also retained its natural beauty.

Although relatively unknown, Oman has so many different experiences to offer, thanks to its varied landscape and range of scenery.

For some, they might not even leave the area around Muscat, which has an impressive selection of hotels – many of which Jackie visited a few years ago. The Chedi is great for couples with its more modern architecture, the Shangri La is great for families and the Al Bustan is a wonderful all-round hotel formed from a former palace. Muscat itself is authentically Arabian with a busy waterfront, forts, palaces and souks.

Heading out of the city, you can enjoy the rolling sand dunes, take a trip into the mountains, or even travel down to Salalah and its more tropical climate.
