Itinerary

Day 1
Fly from UK to
Days 1-4

Pay a visit to the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque ­– a beautiful example of Islamic architecture – or take a walking tour around Muscat’s historic old quarter and the city’s beautiful Royal Opera House. You should also pay a visit to Mutrah Souq, a typically Arabian market selling ornate Indian and Omani antiques alongside textiles, perfume and jewellery. While here, you’ll be taking a mini road trip along the coast, admiring views of the ocean as you go, before visiting the beautiful blue-green Bimah sinkhole, and continuing on to the incredible Wadi Shab.

Days 5-8

When you’re not admiring the banana and papaya plantations, get lost in the throng of the city’s bazaars, a magical assault on the senses full of brightly coloured fruits and the smell of frankincense and spices filling the air. If you just want to relax, head to one of its many beautiful beaches and take a dip in the idyllically warm Arabian Sea. While in Salalah, you’ll enjoy a 4X4 safari to visit The Empty Quarter and The Lost City of Ubar. This UNESCO-listed, once-buried city is an important and spectacular archaeological ruin, surrounded by the vast and beautiful Rub’ al Khali desert.

Day 9
Depart and return to the UK
