Who would have thought Oman would prove to be such a fabulous destination for a family trip? Mountains for the adventurous, ancient cities and points of interest, a gigantic desert in the middle of the country, little gems or oasis known as wadis in between, beaches and cultural attractions in Muscat. But the most prominent with this natural and cultural beauty is the old-world charm of Oman, not marred by an excessive wealth of some of its neighbors.
