Explore Oman’s points of interest, from the Sultan’s Palace in Muscat to the scenery of the Jebel Akhdar Mountains

From the dunes of the Wahiba Sands where Bedouins live nomadically to the Portuguese-influenced architecture of Muscat and the sheer peaks of the Jebel Akhdar Mountains, there are places to go in Oman to suit a wide range of interests. Our specialists have uncovered the main sights in Oman as well as lesser-visited areas, and we draw on our own experiences to help you choose where to go during your trip.

The country’s history is plain to see as you stroll through Nizwa, home to a 17th-century fort and souqs piled high with antiques and spices. Out on the coast, you can explore the remote Musandam Peninsula’s clear waters by dhow or snorkel in its secluded coves. While a visit to the Wahiba Sands gives you the chance to visit Bedouin homes and camp beneath the stars.
