A taste of Arabia at its most exotic and enticing, offering an intoxicating fusion of glamorous resorts and timeless Islamic tradition. A ribbon of coastal villages with Old Muscat at its heart, Oman is an enthralling blend of ancient sights and Islamic customs, sprinkled with a touch of eastern glamour. The turquoise waters of Al Jissah Bay glint and dazzle…the fjords and vertiginous cliffs of the Musandam Peninsula take the breath away. Stalls glitter with ceremonial daggers; the spicy scents of cardamom, saffron, frankincense and turmeric assail the senses. Out of the city, the desert blooms with feathery palms and citrus groves, the traditional reed houses evocative of an old Arabian way of life...the whitewashed desert forts still standing proud. On the horizon, a mirage turns out to be a wadi with a deep, inviting pool. Bump over the endless dunes of the Wahiba desert on an off-road safari to visit a traditional Bedouin camp. Stride up a high dune as the sun dips behind exquisite undulations of ever-shifting land. Enjoy a spectacular drive through the Hajar Mountains to reach the impressive 17th Century fort of Nizwa, set majestically in a palm oasis explore the historic buildings of one of Oman’s oldest forts, Welcome to Oman.
