Summer: June To August
Autumn:Sep To Nov
Winter: Dec To Feb
The best time to visit Oman is between November and mid-March, when the cooler air brings the mountain scenery sharply into focus and daytime temperatures average 25°C. This is the peak tourist season where the coldest, seen along the coast, was 11 degrees C. There are some rainy days, but they're thin on the ground regardless of the season. But when it rains for much more than a half hour, there can be flooding. People and cars are often washed down wadis during rainstorms.

About The Place
Oman, a nation on the Arabian Peninsula, has terrain encompassing desert, riverbed oases and long coastlines on the Persian (Arabian) Gulf, Arabian Sea and Gulf of Oman. Wahiba Sands is a region of dunes inhabited by Bedouins. The port capital, Muscat, is home to the massive, contemporary Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, and the old waterfront Muttrah quarter, with a labyrinthine souk and busy fish market.
As a thoroughly forward-looking nation firmly anchored in the rich traditions of its past, it’s not surprising that Oman has proudly retained its traditional marketplaces whilst also embracing contemporary shopping spaces with gusto.
In towns like Mutrah, Nizwa, Rustaq and Salalah, trading is a way of life. The objective is not just to buy and sell, but also to pour coffee, share it with friends and catch up on the news of the day.
Muscat's famed Mutrah souq is the best-stocked souk in the Arabian Peninsula. Here, in its maze of alleyways, it is possible to find traditional clothes, jewellery, spices, antiques, hand-woven Bedouin carpets Muscat and craft workshops. Look for the craftsmen making traditional sculpted silver and ivory daggers known as khanjars.
Muscat's souqs are utterly charming and the source of some of the finest shopping experiences anywhere, but they're not the only option in town. Modern shopping complexes have sprung up in the city in recent times, mostly situated in Qurum and in the Al Khuwair area facing the Government ministries.
All Muscat shopping malls are fully air-conditioned, have their own mix of local and international shops, boutiques, supermarkets, car parks, cafes, food courts and play areas for children.
Here are some of the city's best known malls:
Muscat City Centre
Muscat Grand Mall
Qurum City Centre
Markaz Al Bahja
