November-February is the best time to visit Oman
After 2011, Oman was divided into eleven governorates or muhafazah. Most of the major cities of Oman like Muscat, Nizwa, Ibri and others are located closely in the northern part of Oman. Witness the sprawling modern city of Muscat with its vibrant beauty, mountains, and beaches. While Nizwa is famous for heritage sites and forts, Ibri is the land of wadis and souks (Arab markets). Musandam Governorate on the northern border will leave you spellbound with the beauty of high mountains around a sea. In the southern region of Oman lies Dhofar where you will find vast stretches of desert and mountains that turn lush green in monsoons.
Clean roads. Hygienic and peaceful country. Safe place. Rich in historical monuments. Scenic beauty. Kind and altruistic people. A variety of tourists spots. Perfect for a family holiday.
Frequent flash floods. Scorching heat. Reckless driving on the highways. Too many restrictions. No cultural diversity.
Oman offers many luxurious hotels which are comfortable and relaxed on your pocket too, especially in the Omani capital, Muscat. The other major cities like Sur, Nizwa, and Sohar also have accommodation facilities, but there are not many options. In smaller places, there are guesthouses which are simple and spartan. The most famous of all is Misfah Old House. AirBnbs are the latest addition in Oman, giving tourists an opportunity to stay near Wadis and beautiful Omani mountains. In deserts, you can book various camps that have the best facilities. In the Wahiba Sands, Desert Night Camping is a must-try. Alternatively, in Oman, wild camping is allowed almost everywhere.
