When it comes to finding paradise in Arabia, Oman is your key. Those seeking culture will uncover tradition by the idillic habour of the charming capital Muscat, where porcelain-white houses creep up to the immense Hajar Mountains. Here, the alluring scents of frankincense and cardamom-infused coffee imbue the winding alleyways of the souk that sits at the heart of the bay, and locals seek respite from the heat with fresh fruit juices and shisha at cafes.

Beyond Muscat’s borders natural beauty abounds. From the ochre chasms of Wadi Ghul and the desert dunes of the Sharqiya Sands, to the pristine coastline where mountains plunge into azure sea, Oman’s natural bounty offers adventure for every type of traveller.
