Occupying pride of place in the south-eastern fringes of the Arab Peninsula, Oman is a fascinating and enchanting Middle Eastern holiday hub that’s ideal for a week-long vacation.
Day One and Two
As the first point of contact travellers have with the country, tourists based at Al Falaj Hotel or any similar one of the Oman hotels should spend the first two days of their Oman holiday exploring the cultural and administrative capital of the country. As a historic city, there’s much to see and explore in Muscat so two days will barely suffice. Some highlights include the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, the Said Bin Taimur Mosque, and the Al Mirani and Al Jalali forts.
Devote the third day of the holiday itinerary to exploring Nizwa, which is found in the Al Dakhiliyah province and a mere 98 miles from Muscat. In addition to visiting the countless architectural highlights in the area including Jabreen Castle and the Nizwa Fort, visitors should also take the time to shop in Nizwa’s local souk and discover the Al Hoota Cave.
Day Four and Five
The breathtaking region where the Al Hajar Mountains are found should be the main focus of your sightseeing activities on days four and five. The area is perhaps best known for the countless hiking possibilities as well as the historic homes, alleyways, and terraces that are scattered across its landscape.
Day Six and Seven
The last two days of one’s stay in Oman should be spent uncovering the beauty of the beach hotspot known as Salalah. Home to white, sandy beaches such as Salalah Al Mughsail Beach, this is also the area where Taqah Castle is found.
