A Cox & Kings tailor-made itinerary to Oman can take you beyond the main sights and give you a fuller experience of this fascinating country, bringing you closer to its culture and beautiful scenery.
Wander the souks of Muscat in the evening, when they are at their most atmospheric; learn about Omani culture at Bait Al Zubair museum; and visit the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, a magnificent example of Islamic modern architecture.
Experience Bedouin culture in Sharqiya Sands as you explore the copper-coloured dunes by 4×4 or by camel and spend a night beneath the desert skies.
Admire the southern Dhofar province in bloom between late June and September as it experiences the khareef (monsoon) season and the hills are clothed in lush green vegetation. The cooler temperatures make it an ideal time to visit this coastal region. Enjoy the miles of uncrowded beaches as well as nearby ancient forts, archaeological sites and tiny fishing villages.
Relax on a traditional dhow cruise around the rugged Musandam Peninsula with stops for snorkelling and swimming in the rocky inlets, or watch green sea turtles nesting on Ras Al Jinz beach between May and September.
