A succession of exotic Arabian castles and souqs punctuates a loop back Oman’s mountainous interior to the capital, where you’ll arrive in time for a final swim and shopping trip before catching the plane home. Accommodation will be in a mix of world-class luxury resorts and boutique properties, set amid some of the most otherworldly landscapes in the Middle East.
In short: a superbly varied week of exotic scenery, markets, monuments, beaches and desert
