A taste of Oman
Oman is a quiet corner of the Arabian peninsula. It’s nothing like brash neighbour Dubai, with its opulent high rise buildings and hotels dripping in gold. Its conservative rulers have developed the country at a quieter pace, and it feels more traditional.
The capital Muscat enthrals with its souk, fish market and vast new mosque, while the arid landscape is studded with mud-baked towns, forts and minarets. But visit the coast and you will find a crystal blue sea and the chance to relax in style.
