If you want to experience authentic Arabia in pure luxury, an Oman holiday is the perfect choice. Not just a long haul stopover, Oman is renowned for luxury hotels and exceptional service. Travellers seeking a relaxing beach holiday are spoilt with 3000-km of coastline along the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Sea, where you’re quite likely to spot turtles and dolphins frolicking off the coast. A visit to Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque will leave you awestruck, perfectly showcasing Oman’s opulence. While in Muscat, stop by the Bait Al Zubair museum and learn about the history and tradition of this Middle Eastern country. Predominantly a desert country, a stay in the Wahiba Sands desert gives travellers the opportunity to experience an unforgettable desert sunset (better yet, by camel ride!) and, for the adventure seekers, the chance to go dune bashing on buggies and sandboard down soft, shape-shifting mountains. For a completely different landscape, check out Oman’s many national parks, where you will find grand limestone mountains, lush valleys and perhaps even spot some elusive Arabian wildlife. Hiking in Jebel Akhdar (Al Jabal Al Akhdar) will surely be a highlight.
