‘Deserted’ has never felt so good


Oman is positioned right at the tip of the peninsula, and historically has been in a strategic position for trade and shipping. Today is very much the same but ships of a different kind are also on the roster to dock at its shores.


Cruising to the capital city of Muscat promises a peaceful and exciting  destination. You’ll be able to test your bartering skills at the famous labyrinthine Muttrah Souk, where you’ll find the most exquisite wools, leathers and jewellery on sale. Be in awe of the beautifully complex mosques; the most stunning of which, being the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque with its 50m-high gold dome. The port city is also famed for its delectable fish dishes  - freshly caught and grilled to perfection, to the delight of seafood lovers.


Abu Dhabi has perhaps lived in the shadow of her bigger and louder neighbour, Dubai, for some time, but it is finally finding its voice. The absolutely beautiful UAE city is always a surprise to visitors. Sitting by its surrounding crystal clear waters, there are ample opportunities to have a dip as you stroll along the enormous Corniche Beach.


Take a trip to the Heritage Village, which gives visitors a glimpse of life in Abu Dhabi before the discovery of oil, with replicas of houses, a souk and mosque. Marvel at the sheer size and splendour of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque – the pristine white marble of this incredible structure shines like a beacon in the desert sun.


It is Dubai, however, that still grabs people’s attention. The oil-rich megalopolis has big ambitions – positioning itself not only as a business juggernaut but also as a tourist mecca. The rapidly changing skyline is mesmerising and  home to the tallest man-made structure on the planet – the Burj Khalifa must have been what the citizens of Babel were striving for. Why not grab a drink on the 122nd floor, nerves permitting?


For those shopaholic travellers, Dubai offers infinite malls and souks selling everything the heart desires. However, for all its glitz and a glamour, Dubai is regarded one of the most friendly and hospitable places on the planet. A perfect combination for a truly memorable holiday.
