Plan Your Muscat Holiday

Travel to Muscat and discover everything you hope for; fine weather, wonderful cuisine, modern facilities, history and culture. The landscape is both mountainous and oceanic, allowing every taste to be catered for. Modern shopping malls co-exist with traditional markets and older regions of Muscat are walled and gated as if time has stood still.

As Muscat has so much to offer, in such a unique geographic area, it continues to be a timeless destination. We advise that you book your tickets to Muscat well in advance if you wish to visit in the popular springtime, when various international events are held in pleasant temperatures. To find cheap hotels in Muscat seek accommodation outside of the Muscat district and consider booking outside of January to later February. Later in the year flight deals to Muscat can also be better as the temperatures increase.
