9781841623320: Oman, 2nd: The Bradt Travel Guide

In a region notorious for religious extremism, turbulence and unrest, Oman stands out as an oasis of calm and composure. If you think of Oman as an arid land of desert and oil, it’s time to open the pages of this book and discover a very different country rich in nature reserves, world-class diving sites and archaeological wonders.

Oman is a place of awe-inspiring natural landscapes: mountains, ravines, cliffs, canyons, desert and coastline under an incessant Middle Eastern sun.

Diana Darke leads you through the coasts, plains and mountains of this spell-binding sultanate. Brimming with up-to-date information on restaurants and bars, hotels, sports facilities and trip itineraries, this guide has everything for the traveller who wants to explore the land beyond the myth. Browse the perfumes and spices in the souks, cheer on a camel race, visit the Queen of Sheba’s Palace or camp with the Bedouin under the stars. You’ll probably want to stay for 1,001 nights.

 

Beautiful photography with clear information of where to go, where to stay and what to do.’ A reader review.
