The best time to visit Oman is from October to April, when the weather is cooler than high summer (which can easily hit the high 30s to the low 40s°C), and you’re unlikely to have your holiday interrupted by rain.
Not only is the temperature sitting pleasantly in the high 20s°C, but you’ll also be able to catch some of the country’s best festivals and events, such as the Muscat Music Festival in February. Oman is famous for its roses, and the blooms are at their best during March, and there’s plenty of fresh food to enjoy, including walnuts, pomegranates, and olives.
Which are the best places to visit in Oman?
From the russet beauty of the Sharqiya Sands to the imposing walls of Nakhal Fort, the rugged mountain beauty of Jebel Shams or the noise and excitement of Muttrah Souq, there’s so much to see and do in Oman. The country has more than its fair share of natural highlights, so if you love the outdoors and want to spend your time hiking or getting close to nature, then our top pick has to be the untouched beauty of Jebel Shams. Rising over 3,000m above sea level, it’s the highest point in the country.
If you prefer luxury hotels, premium quality entertainment, and some of the finest restaurants in the Middle East, your base has to be the bustling city of Muscat. Even here, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to historical sites and cultural treats.
