Oman overview

Why visit Oman? It’s diverse landscape or rugged mountains, hidden oases, rolling sand dunes and pristine beaches makes Oman very much a hidden gem. But it’s not just the scenery that makes Oman such a fascinating destination. It is covered in ancient forts, beautiful hilltop towns and picturesque fishing villages and coastline.

What is the climate like in Oman? Oman’s climate is very appealing for most of the year, except for the hot summer months between June and August, where temperatures can exceed 40 degrees. Rain tends to fall in January and February with short, sharp showers.

What can I combine Oman with? A stay in Oman combines well with either nearby Jordan or neighbouring United Arab Emirates. The breathtaking Musandam Peninsula is actually closer to Dubai and Abu Dhabi than Oman’s capital Muscat.

How to get to Oman?With major Middle-eastern carriers Emirates and Etihad Airways flying directly from many Australian cities, it’s almost a direct flight to Oman, particularly if driving on to visit the Musandam Peninsula.
