Looking for something new? Then there is Oman

Looking for something new? Then there is Oman

Oman is located on the southeastern edge of the Arabian Peninsula and is bordered by Saudi Arabia, Yemen, the Arabian Sea, the Strait of Hormuz and the United Arab Emirates. The name “Oman” may be derived from the town Omana mentioned by Pliny and in the Periplus of the Erythraean Sea. Oman has a hot desert climate, with precipitation far below the upper limit of desert classification. Within this overall climate, it is possible to distinguish climatic variations: the northern coastal regions, the interior plain, the northern mountains and the southern coastal mountains and coastal plain, as well as the two Omani seasons of winter and summer. When is the best time to travel to Oman? The winter season (October to March) is the peak time to visit Oman as the temperature is broadly on a par with summer in the Mediterranean. The summer season (April to September) is the cheaper option, as it is generally deemed too hot for most visitors – inland temperatures can reach more than 48 degrees Celsius. However, by choosing to visit the cooler mountains areas, the coast, Dhofar or simply sightseeing in the early morning or late evening, a visit during this time is still possible with some careful planning. Hotel prices differ depending on the seasons. You can check and compare hotel prices directly on our website.

Oman also offer a lot of interesting trips, most popular are: Dolphin watching and Dune safari, you can find more trips suggestion at the...

Traveling into Eastern Europe – Georgia

Traveling into Eastern Europe – Georgia

Georgia is slightly smaller than Austria or the Republic of Ireland and under half the size of the American state of Georgia. More than half this area lies above 900m and almost 40% is wooded. The country’s dominant feature is, of course, the High Caucasus range which forms its northern border. Although its highest peak, Elbruz (in fact Europe’s highest peak at 5,642m) lies wholly within the Russian Federation, Georgia does have three peaks over 5,000m (Shkhara, Janga and Mkinvartsveri) There is quite a wide range of climates in Georgia, from the warm, humid, subtropical Black Sea Coast, via the colder, wet, alpine climate of the High Caucasus, to the arid steppes of the east. When to visit and what Georgia may not suffer as much from energy shortages these days, but winter is still not the smartest time to visit, unless you are just interested in Tbilisi and the ski resorts. High summer can be too hot and humid, but spring and autumn are ideal times to visit; in particular the golden autumn colours can be spectacular, and the wine harvest makes this a great time to visit Kakheti. Almost all itineraries start in the capital, Tbilisi, although it is also common to arrive in Georgia at Kutaisi Airport or overland from Turkey in Batumi. From Tbilisi, it is easy to head east for a couple of days to Kakheti to enjoy a bit of wine tourism and visit the ancient monasteries of Davit-Gareja. If you are going to Georgia for longer period I would suggest this route follow the option west to Kutaisi for an optional side-trip north to Racha, then you can also divert to Stepantsminda on the way back to Tbilisi, before finishing in Kakheti,...
