Oman is a country sharing borders with the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen, and if you really get a chance to visit this country, you may realize that it’s distinctively a world of its own. The people here are extremely welcoming and therefore, the moments with them will be absolutely pleasant too.

When to travel?

It’s always ideal to avoid the summer months (generally from April to September) because its generally scorching hot during this time. Even if you stay at any of the Oman luxury resorts, you will still feel this heat and travelling outdoors will be quite difficult. So, always choose the winter to travel to Oman, where the surroundings are nice and much cooler.
