Despite being neighbors with Dubai, the Sultanate of Oman couldn’t be more different. Away from the glitz and glamour of the Middle East’s answer to Las Vegas, Oman’s resplendent natural beauty and rich culture are enticing those who want to go off the beaten path and immerse themselves in an ancient way of life. The varied terrain is like nowhere on earth—outside the bustling markets and grand mosques of Muscat, you’ll find Musandam’s sparkling fjords and white-sand beaches, the imposing peaks and wadis (valleys) of the Hajar Mountains, and, of course, endless stretches of desert with gargantuan sand dunes.
