Arabian Days & Nights with Remote Lands - Newsletter June 2015
Remote Lands Newsletter June 2015
Asia begins in the Middle East, and in this latest newsletter we take a look at two of the region's most fascinating countries - the UAE, and our newest destination, Oman. Both places have a wide variety of picturesque landscapes in a relatively compact area, from beaches, deserts and canyons to mountains, lush valleys and booming cities. Dubai is famous for luxury, boasting lavish yachts, opulent shopping, an indoor black diamond ski slope and the world's first 7-star hotel, Burj Al Arab. Neighbouring Abu Dhabi combines 21st century cityscapes with fascinating culture, markets, mosques and deserts. Meanwhile the less well-known nation of Oman is fast gaining a reputation as a holiday hotspot, with its blend of ancient Bedouin culture, stunning scenery and upscale hotels and resorts. And both countries have a reputation for being amongst the safest travel destinations not just in the Middle East, but in Asia as a whole.

Beautiful Oman: Jewel of the Middle East Oman, once a prominent place of great power in the Middle East, all but disappeared off the radar during the 20th century. However, the country still retains its former glory in the form of bustling souqs, magnificent palaces, ancient forts - not to mention the plethora of natural wonders such as deep valleys that cut into towering mountains (wadis) and vast deserts stretching for hundreds of miles. This nine-day Oman itinerary promises to rediscover it all. After exploring the capital of Muscat, you’ll head cross country to Al Hamra, over mountains to the vast sand dunes at Wahiba, all before ending this memorable journey in the lush southern city of Salalah.
