After years of isolation, Oman is coming out of its shell and is now a popular choice for an exotic luxury holiday or honeymoon. Dramatic scenery abounds ranging from camel-coloured mountains and golden dunes to crystal-clear 'wadis', lush green valleys and huge tracts of empty desert.
Head to the souks in the capital Muscat for a fascinating blend of old and new, and outside the city, allow yourself to be pampered at one of Oman's luxury beach hotels. For a slice of eastern adventure, try luxury camping on a desert safari.
HIGHLIGHTS OF OMAN
Jebel Shams is Oman’s highest mountain, at over 3,000m, while alongside it is the Wadi Ghul canyon, Oman’s equivalent of the Grand Canyon. This is a trekker’s paradise, with dramatic views and a welcome breeze after the heat of Muscat.
