Omani Flag

From rich heritage to hospitable people Oman has serene deserts, mountains riverbed oases and long coastlines to offer amongst others.

Useful info:

Currency: Omani Rial

Language: Arabic is the official language, and very few people speak English except in major cities of Muscat and Salalah.

Visa: Pakistanis need to arrange a visa before their departure. If Pakistanis have a residence permit of any of GCC country they can get a visa on arrival.

Climate: Oman’s weather is hot and dry in the interior and humid along the coast. I do not recommend visiting Muscat or other parts of Oman during summer as the temperatures range from 30 °C to 45 ° in these areas however you can visit Salalah which receives rains during July and August due to monsoon winds and its weather ranges from 20 °C to 30 °C in summer.

Trivia: Muscat was named the second best city to visit in the world in 2012 by Lonely Planet.


Being an Islamic country, halal food is available everywhere.

Transportation:Oman has an excellent infrastructure of roads and thanks to lower oil prices in the country; you can easily afford road trips from Muscat to Salalah.  Its primary airport is Muscat International Airport. Taxis are cheaper and easily available.


Depending on the city you are visiting, Oman has several accommodation options with hotels starting from 40US $. There are many listings available on Airbnb as well (use this link to get 25$ off).

The is no nightlife speaking in western terms.
To go or not to go:
If you are resident of any GCC country especially UAE than you should take a trip to Oman however, there’s no point in making a trip only to visit Oman.
