When to Visit

Oman's climate varies extensively from one region to another. Generally, the winter season from October to February is the best time to visit when the temperatures are pleasant, making it perfect for outdoor activities and sightseeing.

However, if you're planning to visit Salalah, the period from June to August is the best time when the region experiences the monsoon season, transforming the landscape into a lush green paradise. It's worth noting that during the summer (June through September), temperatures can rise significantly, especially in desert areas, so plan your trips accordingly.
