WHEN TO VISIT OMAN

Oman's winter season (November to April) is the best time to visit due to the comfortable weather. The down side is that prices relatively go high during this season.

Oman Trivia and Facts

  • Immigrants from South Asia make up almost half of Oman's population.
  • Due to frankincense trees growing naturally in the southern part of Oman, it would be easy to understand why Omanis burn frankincense daily and leave it in every room of their homes that you'll be sure to smell frankincense essence just by walking down the streets.
