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.

 Food:

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.

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.
