If Oman were to be summed up in one word, it would be ‘diverse’. Diversity reflects in its culture, people, architecture and most importantly, the terrain. From the vast desert expanse, to the beautiful wadis, the lush green vegetation, the sparkling blue waters of the ocean and the rugged mountains, Oman truly is an experience for everyone. It boasts of a rich cultural heritage and history that dates back to the Stone Age.

Basic Facts

Religion: Majority of the population comprises of Muslims and non-Muslim religious communities comprise less than 5% of the population.Language: Arabic is the official language of Oman. Other languages in Oman are English, Urdu, and other Indian dialects spoken by Indian immigrants and tourists.

Due to the diversity in the terrain, the climate in Oman also differs as per the geography. Most of the country enjoys a warm and sunny weather during the winter months, from October to April, with temperatures ranging from 25°C to 35°C during the day. The nights are cooler with an average of 19°C.

The summer months – May to September, are very hot and humid in the coastal areas and hot and dry in the interiors. Temperatures can range from 35°C to 45°C during these months. However, this is also when the southern Dhofar region enjoys ‘khareef’ or monsoon season with light to heavy rains and considerably cooler weather, up to 15°C lower than the rest of the country.

Do's & Dont's: Many Arab customs are very different from those in the west and being aware of the social norms will help you avoid uncomfortable situations. Oman is more conservative as compared to the UAE and hence, certain actions and behaviors might be regarded as inappropriate by the local community.
