Several years ago I spent a couple of weeks in Oman and I can’t speak highly enough of the country. With it’s diverse geography, Muslim culture and Grand Mosque, beautiful coastline, amazing ruins, souks and friendly locals you’ll have an experience like no other.
Also, in late February this year, the Sultanate of Oman is hosting the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series. It is the first country in the Middle East to host this event.
Oman is a safe and hospitable country and Muscat, the capital, is just an hour’s flight from Dubai.
Here is a pictorial tour of this impressive country.
