Best Time to Visit Oman

Oman like its neighbouring countries located in the Persian Gulf, features a desert climate with high summer temperatures and comparatively pleasant winter weather. However, the winter months of December and January correspond with the country's peak tourist season hence the demand for air tickets and accommodations is considerably higher. Those seeking deals on hotels and flights should target the shoulder months of November and February which feature equally pleasant weather, but a marked decrease in the number of tourists visiting the country. Due to the risk of sunburns and dehydration, use of sunscreen and high intake of fluids is recommended.
