Reached by a relatively short flight, by long haul standards at least, and offering almost guaranteed blue skies Oman is perfect for some winter sun and in recent years, it has emerged as a hip holiday destination. This Arab state offers you so much more than just the perfect beach break. Seek out utterly beautiful mountain and desert landscapes; experience the genuine pride that the Omanis have in their country; and see an entirely different side of Arabia than you will find in the flashier neighbouring United Arab Emirates.
