Rugged mountains, beautiful beaches and friendly locals will greet you when you arrive on your holidays to Oman.

This under-explored country has much to offer, with the exciting city of Muskat and the dramatic mountainous landscape to the north, as well the breath taking deserts of Salalah to the south. Oman is only eight hours by plane from the UK, and with a whole host of excellent deals on flights and accommodation available at lowcostholidays.com you could be heading off on your holidays to Oman sooner than you think.

Discover Oman

Muscat has warm winter sun, tropical seas and a wonderful relaxing and friendly atmosphere. The capital of Oman since 1790, this bustling city offers intriguing insight into Omani heritage. History lovers should visit the Al Alam Palace, as well as the medieval forts of Jalali and Mirani. Looking for a traditional Omani shopping experience on your Oman holidays? Then head to Muttrah Souq; an excellent place to buy unmatchable gold jewellery.

Salalah, to the south of the country, has the most spectacular landscape and shouldn’t be missed. Renowned in the Arabian Peninsula for its summer monsoon, Salalah’s mountains change colour as a result of the monsoon mists, becoming a startling green in the summer month. There’s desert here too – the largest sand desert in the world, in fact: Rub al Khali. Why not arrange a day trip or overnight excursion and enjoy the peace and silence that abounds here? The night skies, due to a total lack of light pollution, are absolutely unbelievable.

The climate in Oman is hot and humid between May and August, and rainfall is rare, though this varies according to the region. The most popular time to visit is between September and April when there is less humidity and cooler weather, so why not have your winter holidays in Oman?
