What I liked about Oman

If you have not yet been to the Middle East, then Oman is the perfect place to start.

In a region where you will find excessive wealth (UAE, Saudi Arabia) or abject poverty (Yemen, Iraq), Oman is the perfect ‘middle of the road’ country for a first timer’s visit to the Middle East. It is safe, has an astounding amount of natural beauty, fantastic beaches, people are welcoming, the weather is great most time of the year and an easy place to travel around in.

Oman is not the flashiest country in the region, but it should be. It has plenty of reasons to boast. Oman is one of my favourite countries, and though it is not a cheap destination, I think it is well worth the cost.
