The first time I went to Oman was for work, and I didn’t get to visit any touristy places. This time, with my wife, and help from HolidayMe, I managed to cover all major destinations including Salalah, a peaceful city.Reviewed On : 14 Jun`16
It took us a lot of time to decide on the perfect package for Oman, since we had never been to that side of the world. But HolidayMe people were really quite patient, and they helped us out with all our queries. All of Oman is beautiful, but Salalah is especially beautiful. There is a feeling of tranquility in the air, and it is a good place to bring your family. It is very safe, and we took walks in the night near our hotel, which was enjoyable. The hotel was also a good one, and the food was customized because we are vegetarians.Reviewed On : 14 Jun`16
Very good time in Oman. My first foreignn trip with wife and son. Everybody enjoyed very much. Very nice beach, many large mosques very pretty. Qurum National Park good option, but not more to see there. City Centre very nice, and many shops for shopping.We went baoting on the sea, and saw the sunset. Very nice food near beach.Reviewed On : 14 Jun`16
Very nice vacation in Musandam with friends. My friends are from here, but I took a package from HolidayMe to come here. They offered less pricing, and discounts to fit into my budget. Hotel close to my friend’s home also.Reviewed On : 14 Jun`16
Well my Oman trip from HolidayMe was a great success. I got to visit all the major tourist attractions, including Souq Al Haffa in Salalah. It was a vibrant marketplace, and a lot of bargaining was going on. Picked up some great souvenirs.Reviewed On : 14 Jun`16
I must have been mad to not have visited Oman ever before. Thank you HolidayMe for suggesting it be a part of my itinerary. Such a gorgeous, gorgeous city, and the beaches are pristine and secluded. I wish I could have added more days to my stay in muscat. Oh well, maybe next time. Here’s hoping for similar discounts, wink wink!Reviewed On : 14 Jun`16
Feeling fresh in Musandam… cool weather and nice breeze. Hotel is close to beach, and restaurant serves good food. We needed milk for the baby but they said they don’t give milk. We had to go to buy milk from shop. Hope HolidayMe think of such pointsfor putting a hotel in a package for baby including families like us.Reviewed On : 14 Jun`16
The room service was a bit too slow for me. Had to call 3 times for my club sandwich. But the city of Salalah itself is a beautiful one, the locals were pretty helpful too. I would love to come back. Must ensure HolidayMe puts me in a better hotel. I wouldn’t actually mind a few more discounts as well.Reviewed On : 14 Jun`16
Among all the countries of the Middle East, Oman trudges a midway path between the traditional, commercial and the modern. The vast desolation that makes this country is all but an unexplored, unexploited territory. So if you love your sand dunes, lonely beaches and absolutely love anonymity, Oman offers you a lot of that vacuum, and more. There are nearly 3000 kilometres of beaches that cover the landscape and then there are mountains that would thrill any adventure-seeker. Oman is a wide expanse of space, just waiting to be discovered.
European powers have tried to muscle their influence over the land for decades. If one flips back to 17th century history, you will discover the Omani Sultanate was warding off British and Portuguese from capturing regions of Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf. The sultanate also extended its influence over present day Tanzania, Iran and Pakistan when at its peak. It was on its decline that the sultanate was taken under United Kingdom. Presently, Oman is a monarchy governed by the Sultan.
Omani Arabic is the local language of the country, Balochi is the second-most preferred language. Bread, tender meat, a mix of spices and herbs to enhance the flavour, fish and mashed rice are important parts of the Omani cuisine.
Largely covered with deserts and mountains, Oman has refuge of the coast and its umpteen beaches too. Oman experiences a harsh summer and meagre rainfall, though the mountain areas receive more rain and sometimes, even snow. About three-quarters or 75% of the population is Muslim. Sikhs, Jains, Buddhists, Christians, Hindus and Zoroastrians form the rest of the multi-ethnic population. A holiday to Oman with HolidayMe typically ranges from to
