Oman | Taimur Al-said

September 14, 2021

I’m excited to take you to one of my favorite countries today, the Sultanate of Oman.

Located on the edge of the Arabian Peninsula, this hidden gem boasts rugged mountain ranges bursting with roses, terraced orchards of pomegranates, vast sand dune deserts, and date palm fringed oases dotted with crystal clear limestone pools of water.

One of the best ways to experience Oman is by camping and spending time with a local guide. So our guest today is Taimur Al-said, the owner of Hud Hud Travels. Taimur specializes in luxury camp set ups so that whether you’re a couple or a big family or a huge group of friends – you can have this experience in comfort.

We discuss everything from the Sultan, to trying Omani food streetside, to the gorgeous natural beauty of the countryside.
