Flying to Oman: FAQs

What should tourists wear in Oman?

Oman is a socially traditional country that closely follows Islamic law. Guests who fly to Oman should be conscious of local customs. Dress modestly at religious sites. Resort areas tend to be a little more relaxed.

What food is Oman known for?

Omani food is typically Arabian, with plenty of rice, often served with fish, thanks to the long coastline. One traditional dish to look out for is shuwa. A celebratory dish, shuwa is usually goat or lamb, wrapped in palm leaves and slowly cooked in a pit in the ground. This cooking method produces deliciously moist meat, enjoyed with spiced rice and bread.

Dates are also a staple part of the Omani diet – often paired with strong Arabic coffee.

What is Oman best known for?

After stepping off your flight to Oman you can expect to be greeted by stunning coastline, large ports and fresh sea air. The Grand Mosque in Muscat is arguably the star attraction, while local cuisine includes rich curries, creamy soups and fresh green salads. Don’t forget to try halwa either, a delicious after-dinner treat famous across the Arabian Peninsula.

Why we love Oman

“Oman is a place where there are so many possibilities. Join a camel trek at Wahiba Sands, cool off on the coast at Salalah and visit castles close to Muscat. The local food is delicious too – mashuai is an amazing fish dish.”
