Oman Travel Guide
Oman is a beautiful country, full of culture, heritage and stunning landscapes. It’s becoming a more and more popular travel destination every year, both for backpackers and vacationers due to its vibrant cities, array of different sites and the arrival of global hotel chains. The capital, Muscat is still very traditional and historic compared to other Middle Eastern cities like Dubai and Doha. What it lacks in modernity, it makes up for in heritage and beauty. With an abundance of natural beauty, including spectacular mountains, ever-lasting deserts and a pristine coastline, Oman is a great choice for those seeking a calmer pace whist still wanting a sense of its ancient soul.
