The poorer and quieter neighbour to buzzing UAE, Oman is a peaceful Sultanate that enjoys a privileged position on the heel of the Arabian Peninsula. Washed by the warm waters of the Arabian Sea on one side and towered by the dusty dunes of the desert on the other, you can spend time on a real-life oasis, by the 1,000 Nights dreamy capital, or exploring everything in between. Arabian hospitality at its best and the chance to experience some of that romance in the form of frankincense and sweet sticky dates.
