Oman is considered the "jewel in the Arabian crown.” The 309,500 sq. km that makes Oman is a mix of large gravel and sand plains that sit beside rough mountains. Even the desert-laden areas of Oman have contrasts, whether it’s the beautiful lagoons, or the salt flats. In recent years it has become a thriving tourist destination, with many thousands of tourists going on Oman holidays.
Holidays to Oman can be as relaxing or adventurous as you want them to be. Here are just some of things you can enjoy on a trip to Oman:
Follow the Frankincense Trail and see the remains of Ancient Salalah
Experience a camel ride across the Sharqiya Sands
