Wander through an old walled city, discover ancient forts and dine among the desert dunes. Welcome to Oman...

As you cruise the Musandam Peninsula’s tranquil fjords on a traditional dhow, watch out for dolphins swimming alongside the wooden boat and sit back, chill out and soak up the panorama of mountains rising up into the heavens.

Spend a captivating day wandering through the old walled town of Muscat, with its steep narrow streets leading to the Sultan’s imposing Royal Palace. Muscat is the capital of Oman and has fascinating museums, old forts and the traditional Mutrah souk.
