Where to go in Oman

The most likely entry point into Oman is the coastal capital city of Muscat, home to some of the finest luxury hotels in the Middle East, a fun souq, picturesque seafront communities and the magnificent Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. Muscat is also the perfect launch pad for exploration of the spectacular Hajar Mountains, the ancient market city of Nizwa, the coast towards Sur and the dunes of the Wahiba Sands. A flight south brings Salalah, the ancient staging posts of the frankincense route and the desolate but beautiful Empty Quarter into play. To the north lies the rugged exclave of the Musandam Peninsula, home to Zighy Bay and world class diving, and best reached from Dubai:
